No. 17 Oklahoma State heads to Kansas on Saturday

No. 17 Oklahoma State heads to Kansas on Saturday

No. 17 Oklahoma State (2-0, 1-0 Big 12) at Kansas (0-2, 0-1), Saturday at 3:30 p.m. ET (ESPN).

Line: Oklahoma State by 21 1/2.

Series record: Oklahoma State leads 39-29-2.

WHAT’S AT STAKE?

After watching Bedlam rival Oklahoma lose to Kansas State, the Cowboys are suddenly in prime position in a topsy-turvy Big 12. They will be heavily favored to improve to 2-0 in the league when they visit Memorial Stadium on Saturday, then have struggling Iowa State before a potentially huge showdown with Texas. At stake for the Jayhawks is the progress they’ve been trying to make under second-year coach Les Miles.

KEY MATCHUP

Oklahoma State RB Chuba Hubbard against the Kansas defense. The Heisman Trophy candidate only has 194 yards and two TDs through his first two games, which means he is probably primed for a breakout performance. It could come against the Jayhawks’ porous rush defense, which is giving up 194 yards per game.

PLAYERS TO WATCH

Oklahoma State: LBs Amen Ogbongbemiga and Malcolm Rodriguez form one of the best tackling duos in the Big 12. Each has 17 tackles and a sack already this season. They will be largely responsible for slowing down all-conference RB Pooka Williams, who is the Jayhawks’ most dynamic offensive threat.

Kansas: QB Jalon Daniels got the start last week at Baylor with Thomas MacVittie dealing with a shoulder injury. And while the freshman was just 19 of 33 for 159 yards through the air with 14 carries for 23 yards on the ground, he showed enough mastery of the offense and natural athletic spark that he’s the clear future for the Jayhawks at the position.
