Kansas St. Vs. Oklahoma St. Odds: Wildcats Are Heavy Underdogs In Stillwater

For the odds-makers, the bloom is definitely off the rose in Manhattan after Kansas State's ugly 58-17 home loss to Oklahoma last weekend. This week, the No. 17 Wildcats travel to No. 3 Oklahoma State, where they are +21 underdogs.

Before last week, Kansas State was one of the year's biggest surprises, going 7-0 and entering the top ten of the polls for the first time since head coach Bill Snyder's last tenure in Manhattan.

But they had only one victory over a ranked team, a 36-35 home win over Baylor, so their home date with the Sooners was widely seen as their first true test.

And after hanging with Oklahoma for a half, the flood gates opened in the second, with the Sooners scoring 35 unanswered points. Landry Jones threw for 505 passing yards and 5 TD's, while Oklahoma exploited Kansas State's one-dimensional offense, as starting QB Collin Klein threw for only 58 yards on 8/16 attempts.

Oklahoma State's offense, with 28-year old QB Brandon Weeden throwing to returning Biletnikoff Award winner Justin Blackmon, is just as potent as their in-state rivals. The Cowboys have averaged 49.9 points a game this year while racing out to a 8-0 record, but they've been held to only 34 a game in their two meetings against ranked foes.

The over/under on Saturday's game is 67.5 points, with the Wildcats likely hoping for a final score much lower, as controlling the ball on the ground and shortening the game is their best chance of pulling off an upset that would rock the college football world.
