Wildcats open Big 12 play at Oklahoma

Posted Sep 22, 2022 11:54 AM

Kansas State at No. 6 Oklahoma. This would have been a matchup of undefeated teams if the Wildcats hadn't gotten upset as a two-touchdown favorite at home against Tulane in their non-conference finale. But K-State (2-1) has still been impressive on defense (allowing 276 total yards and 9.7 points a game), and had recent success against the Sooners.

Oklahoma (3-0), playing its first Big 12 game for coach Brent Venables, has won its last 10 home games and 28 of 29 — the lone loss was to Kansas State two years ago. The Wildcats beat Oklahoma in each of coach Chris Klieman's first two seasons (48-41 in 2019 and 38-35 in 2020) before two crucial replay reviews went against them in the second half of last year's 37-31 loss.

The Sooners have more Big 12 championships (14) than home losses (11) since 1999. Three of those losses are to K-State.
