We have reached week eight of the college football season and by this point most of the teams will be playing conference games this week.
In this one it’s a Big 12 showdown at the Bill Snyder Family Stadium.
The Oklahoma Sooners will make the trip to Manhattan to take on the Kansas State Wildcats. The Sooners have won the last two games played between the two teams.
The Oklahoma Sooners have played really well this year, and except for one slip up against the Iowa State Cyclones, that could prove to be very costly, they have looked good.
They come into this game off a victory in the Red River showdown against the Texas Longhorns. The defense really stepped up in the game with the offense struggling a bit, at least for their standards and that led to a 29-24 victory.
The Sooners are led by Baker Mayfield who has been excellent this season. He comes into this game having thrown for 1937 yards and 17 touchdowns.
He has also thrown only one interception. He is leading a Sooners offense that is putting up 42 points and over 575 yards of total offense a game.
To win this game it’s going to be a pretty simple concept for the Sooners, they really need to try and make this game a shootout.
The higher scoring this game is, the higher the probability that the Sooners will be leaving Manhatten with a big victory.
Kansas State Wildcats
The Kansas State Wildcats had high hopes for this season, but a quarterback injury has kind of derailed their season at this point.
They come into this game with a 3-3 record and in their last four games they haven’t covered the spread yet. The big loss for this team was quarterback Jesse Ertz who has a knee sprain and isn’t expected back until sometime in November.
In his place is Sophomore Alex Delton who struggled against TCU in the last game. He only threw for 146 yards and zero touchdowns.
The strength for the Wildcats has always been considered the defense, but right now they are struggling too. Two games ago they gave up 40 points to Texas and in the last game they gave up 26 points to TCU.
That isn’t trending in the right direction against a Sooners team that hasn’t had any issue running up the score this year.
