Kansas State hosts Oklahoma in what will be a nostalgic homecoming for new Sooners coach Lon Krueger who is a former Wildcats star and has his name hanging from the rafters. Saturday's game will be Krueger's first trip back to Bramlage Coliseum as an opposing coach.
"It will be different, but that's the way it is and we understand that," said Kruger, who is in his first season with the Sooners. "We'll be cheering for them on all but a couple of occasions on the year. But certainly we'll go up there and try to play as well as we can."
Its an important game for both teams as Oklahoma is trying to stop a two game losing streak and the Wildcats are trying to remain in the Big 12 title race. The Sooners lost in overtime to Texas A&M and then fell to Baylor on Wednesday. The Wildcats are enjoying a three-game winning streak having defeated Texas, Oklahoma State and Texas Tech in the last 10 days with the last two victories coming on the road.
