The Oklahoma Sooners will travel north to Manhattan and take on the Kansas State Wildcats this Saturday. The Wildcats took their first loss of the season, while the Sooners were able to pick up their fourth straight win..
Oklahoma continues to succeed under pressure. Lincoln Riley’s team trailed going into the fourth period, and they’d go on to defeat West Virginia with a last second go-ahead field goal from Gabe Brkic.
Spencer Rattler’s play in the fourth quarter saved the Sooners undefeated record. The sophomore quarterback went 26-36 for 256 yards with a touchdown and an interception. Despite the uninspiring statline, Rattler led the Sooners into field goal range and Brkic finished the mission.
The Sooners couldn’t get the ground game going against the Mountaineers, but they do have a pair of talented backs in Kennedy Brooks and Eric Gray. Brooks leads the team with 227 rushing yards and three scores, while Gray has added 223 on 45 touches.
Rattler has split the distribution well through the first four weeks, as four receivers have caught ten passes for 150 yards so far. Marvin Mims leads the team with ten catches and 193 receiving yards.
The Sooners have been very strong defensively since the nailbiting opener with Tulane, only allowing 9.4 points per game over their last three.
Kansas State Wildcats
Kansas State jumped out to a good start, winning their first three games at home, but they suffered their first loss last weekend against Oklahoma State. KSU went down big at halftime and could not recover, dropping the game 31-20.
The Wildcats has dealt with their fair share of dismay at the quarterback position. Junior Skylar Thompson went down after the opening win over Stanford. Sophomore Jaren Lewis replaced Will Howard last week and went 12-22 for 154 passing yards with a touchdown and interception in his first snaps as a Wildcat.
Deuce Vaughn is the focal point of the Kansas State offense. The sophomore back got off to a great start this season, rushing forever 120 yards in each of the first three games. Despite struggling on the ground last week, he scored on a 55-yard catch and run.
Phillip Brooks leads the team in receiving with eleven catches for 170 yards, while Malike Knowles has nine catches for 151 yards.
Kansas State struggled to slow down OSU quarterback Spencer Sanders last weekend, and they may have a tough time with Spencer Rattler looking to get things going on Saturday.
Free Week 5 NCAA Football Pick
It’s been a shaky start for Oklahoma, but Kansas State may have more issues of their own. The Sooners have been in a few close contests so far, but those were results of stable quarterback play. Kansas State hasn’t had any type of stability behind center through the first month of the season.
