No. 6 Oklahoma begins its Big 12 schedule Saturday night when it hosts Kansas State in what has been considered a trap game for the Sooners in recent years. The Brent Venables era got off to a good start in Norman, Oklahoma after blowout wins over UTEP, Kent State and Nebraska. The Sooners outscored the Cornhuskers 49-14 on the road behind 312 rushing yards on nearly six yards per carry.

Strangely, Kansas State became the fourth straight opponent to lose the week before facing Oklahoma as the Wildcats dropped a clash against undefeated Tulane in Week 3. K-State scored a basket late in the time allowed in the first half, but posted just 141 yards in the second half despite two interceptions. The performance came just a week after dropping 40 points to Missouri.

Oklahoma edged Kansas State last season 37-31 thanks to two second-half touchdown passes from Spencer Rattler. The Sooners also hold a dominating 77-21-4 all-time advantage. However, Kansas State has won two of the last three matchups, including a 38-35 win the last time those teams played Norman.

Oklahoma vs Kansas State: need to know

Disruptive Defense: When Venables took over, there was no doubt the Sooners would place a new emphasis on defensive play. In a dominating win over Nebraska, the Sooners showed all sorts of tricks to make the Cornhuskers’ offenses a living hell. Four different players recorded sacks, while defensive linemen Ethan Downs and Jonah Laulu were each credited with multiple tackles for loss. Kansas State’s offensive line will be a different challenge, but OU can make life difficult.

Deuce is cowardly: The nation’s most underrated player plays in Manhattan, Kansas. Running back Deuce Vaughn had 1,404 rushing yards, 468 receiving yards and 22 total touchdowns in a second breakout season. With 388 all-around yards and three scores in three games, Vaughn is already back on track to match those lofty numbers. Kansas State is willing to move Vaughn all over the court to create lags, including to slot receiver, making him one of the most unique point guards in the sport.

Easy return: Quarterback Dillon Gabriel chose Oklahoma as his transfer destination to team up with offensive coordinator Jeff Lebby, his former OC at UCF. After three games, the transition was easier than anyone could have expected. Gabriel threw for at least 230 yards and two touchdowns in each of his three starts. He also has a pair of rushing scores, including a career-wide 61-yard springboard a week ago. Gabriel has bonded solidly with future NFL wide receiver Marvin Mims, who is nearly halfway through his 2021 stats just three games into the season.

Prediction Oklahoma vs Kansas State, 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 each of Klieman’s first two seasons and played the Sooners by a score in 2021. He There was optimism that this could be the best team of Klieman’s tenure, but an inexplicable loss to Tulane put a damper on that. Nonetheless, expect the Wildcats to keep the game within two points. Prediction: Kansas State +13
