Oklahoma vs. Kansas State: Live Stream, TV Channel, Watch Online, Prediction, Choice, Broadcast, Football Match Odds

No. 6 Oklahoma kicks off its Big 12 schedule on Saturday night when they host Kansas State in what has been considered a cheat game for the Sooners in recent years. However, the Brent Venables era is off to a solid start in Norman, Oklahoma, following blowout wins over UTEP, Kent State and Nebraska. The Sooners dominated the Cornhuskers 49-14 on the road behind 312 rushing yards on nearly six yards a carry.

Oddly, Kansas State became the fourth straight opponent to lose the week before playing Oklahoma when the Wildcats threw an upset against undefeated Tulane in Week 3. K-State made a field goal as time expired in the first half, but recorded just 141 yards in the second half despite catching two interceptions. The performance came just a week after dropping 40 points at Missouri.

Oklahoma outscored Kansas State last season 37-31 thanks to two second-half touchdown passes from Spencer Rattler. The Sooners also have a commanding 77-21-4 lead all time. However, Kansas State has won two of the last three matchups, including a 38-35 win the last time these teams played in Norman.

Oklahoma vs. State of Kansas: I need to know

Disruptive Defense: When Venables took over, there was little doubt the Sooners would put a new premium on the defensive game. In a dominant win over Nebraska, the Sooners pulled off all sorts of tricks to make the Cornhuskers’ offenses hell. Four different players recorded sacks, while defensive linemen Ethan Downs and Jonah Laulu were credited with multiple tackles for loss. Kansas State’s offensive line will be a different challenge, but OU can make life difficult.

Deuce is loose: The most underrated player in the country stars in Manhattan, Kansas. Running back Deuce Vaughn recorded 1,404 rushing yards, 468 receiving yards and 22 total touchdowns in a breakout sophomore season. With 388 all-purpose yards and three touchdowns in three games, Vaughn is already back on track to match those lofty numbers. Kansas State is willing to move Vaughn all over the field to create mismatches, including at wide receiver, making him one of the most unique playmakers in the game.

Easy transition back: Quarterback Dillon Gabriel chose Oklahoma as his transfer destination to team with offensive coordinator Jeff Lebby, his former OC at UCF. Three games later, the transition has been easier than anyone could have expected. Gabriel has thrown for at least 230 yards and two touchdowns in each of his three starts. He also has a pair of rushing touchdowns, including a 61-yard run a week ago. Gabriel has built a strong connection with future NFL wide receiver Marvin Mims, who is nearly halfway through his 2021 stats with just three games into the season.

Oklahoma vs Kansas State Prediction, Picks

featured game | Oklahoma Sooners vs. Kansas State Wildcats

Kansas State has quietly played Oklahoma better than anyone since Chris Klieman took over the program in 2019. The Wildcats beat OU in each of Klieman’s first two seasons, and faced the Sooners by one score in 2021. Optimism that this could be the best team of Klieman’s tenure, but an inexplicable loss to Tulane marred it. Still, expect the Wildcats to keep the game within two scores. Prediction: Kansas State +13
