Oklahoma State has a great chance to get to 3-0 on the season when they hook up with winless Kansas on Saturday afternoon in Lawrence. The Cowboys have scored their first two wins by a total of just 23 points though.
While hasn’t been blowing out opponents, that could change vs. the Jayhawks who lost by 34 points last week at Baylor. KU even lost their opener 38-23 at home vs. Coastal Carolina, and as -4.5 favorites.
Oklahoma State Cowboys
OSU is supposed to be one of the better running teams in the country with the duo of Chuba Hubbard and L.D. Brown. Hubbard has 93 and 101 yards in two games this year, but on 49 carries. Brown is averaging 8.4 yards per carry.
Oklahoma State is averaging 171 yards/game on the ground through two games, but that should increase Saturday. The Jayhawks defense allowed 185 yards on the ground to Coastal Carolina and over 200 to Baylor last week.
Another reason the Cowboys will rely on the run on Saturday afternoon is because QB Spencer Sanders continues to fight through an ankle injury. As a result, OSU has scored just 16 and 27 points in their two wins.
The fact that OSU is 2-0 despite their offense being less than dynamic is a testament to the defense. West Virginia ran the ball 42 times last week, but for just 68 yards. Winston Wright did catch 6 passes for 127 for WVU though.
Les Miles still isn’t having much success in his second year at KU. The Jayhawks lost outright to Coastal Carolina in their season opener as -4.5 favorites and allowed 40 straight points to Baylor in going to 0-2 last week.
What’s unfortunate is that there haven’t been many bright spots for Kansas in the losses. KU gave up 5 sacks in the opener and have used three QBs so far in two games.
Both teams are going to try to run the ball on Saturday afternoon which does make a lower scoring game under the total of 54 a more distinct possibility.
Pooka Williams, Jr. and Velton Gardner are a nice duo on the ground for Kansas as both have 65+ yards in each of the two games this season.

Free Week 5 NCAA Football Prediction:
Oklahoma State has struggled to get their offense moving the first two games, but Kansas offers little resistance in that department. The Cowboys won 48-28 their last trip to Lawrence, but got just a 31-13 victory a year ago.
Free NCAA Betting Pick: Under 54
This game is going to be very run-centric, which should keep the clock running. OSU hasn’t shown their offensive explosiveness (yet) and Kansas is riddled with questions at QB.
