Storylines

Oklahoma’s 22-game true road game winning streak is the longest in the nation (next longest is 10 by Clemson; third longest is six by Alabama). The Sooners haven’t lost a true road contest in five years (Oct. 4, 2014).

OU is 7-0 for the first time since 2004. That Sooners team went 12-1 with its only loss to USC in the BCS Championship.

Oklahoma’s 76 all-time wins against Kansas State are its third most among all opponents (88 vs. Oklahoma State and 77 vs. Kansas). The Sooners have won 10 of the last 12 matchups vs. K-State and 13 of the last 16.

The road team has won six of the last eight meetings in the OU-Kansas State series. The two times the home team won in the last eight years were in 2016 and 2018 (OU won 38-17 and 51-14, respectively).

OU is the nation’s only team this year with at least 22 rushing touchdowns (22) and at least 22 passing TDs (23).

Oklahoma quarterback Jalen Hurts has recorded five passing efficiency ratings of at least 245.0 this year and is the only FBS player since at least 1996 to record more than three such outings (min. 15 attempts) in a season.

This game will pit the nation’s top scoring offense (Oklahoma averages 50.4 points per game) against the Big 12’s top scoring defense (Kansas State allows just 18.7 points per contest).

Oklahoma is averaging a nation-leading 612.9 offensive yards per game, which is 59 yards more than the next highest average (553.9 by UCF).

Odds

Oklahoma (-23.5)

O/U 48.5
