The Kansas State Wildcats, ranked No. 15 in the nation, will travel to Oklahoma Memorial Stadium to take on the No. 6 ranked Oklahoma Sooners in what will be the biggest game for each of the two respective teams so far this season.
Each of the Big 12 teams are undefeated and are coming off of large margin of victories, albeit against weak competition, but something has to give in this Saturday showdown.
Through this short lived season, the Wildcats and Sooners have played similar styles and yielded similar results. Kansas State enters the game ranked No. 18 in rushing yards per game to Oklahoma's No. 12 ranking. The teams are virtually scoring the same amount of points (Kansas State is averaging 46.0 points per game to Oklahoma's 46.5).
But it is their defensive units that show the greatest disparity, as Oklahoma is holding opposing teams to just 10.0 points per game while Kansas State is allowing 14.3 per contest. Something the Wildcats will need to focus on, especially on the road.
Game time/date: 7:50 PM ET on Sept. 22
Location: Oklahoma Memorial Stadium, Norman, OK
Odds: Oklahoma is currently a 14 point favorite.
Match-Up History: The Wildcats suffered a 41-point loss at home against Oklahoma last season.
