Last Season

OSU routed Kansas 58-17 last year in Stillwater. Mason Rudolph passed for 438 yards and two touchdowns and ran for two scores in his final home game. He’s now with the Steelers. James Washington, Dillon Stoner and Marcel Ateman each went over 100 yards receiving for Oklahoma State. Peyton Bender was 17 of 32 passing for 172 yards and two touchdowns for Kansas, which lost its 45th consecutive road game at the time. That streak ended earlier this year. The Cowboys outgained Kansas 661 yards to 241, holding the Jayhawks to just two yards in the fourth quarter.Saturday’s game marks the 69th meeting between Oklahoma State and Kansas. OSU holds a 37-29-2 all-time advantage in the series and a 21-15-1 advantage in Lawrence. The Cowboys have won eight consecutive meetings, and a win Saturday would tie OSU’s longest active win streak against a single opponent.

Why Bet on Oklahoma State?

It’s fine that OSU lost last week at home to Texas Tech, but 41-17? That was unexpected. It was TTU’s first win over the Cowboys since 2008. OSU’s Justice Hill rushed 12 times for 111 yards and a touchdown for the Cowboys (3-1, 0-1), the 10th straight game the junior has scored. Tylan Wallace had seven catches for 123 yards. After leading Oklahoma State to a win over Boise State the previous week, Oklahoma State quarterback Taylor Cornelius struggled — finishing 18-of-38 passing for 258 yards with a touchdown and interception.OSU got worse news this week when starting receiver Jalen McCleskey announced he wasn’t going to play again for the team and will be transferring. McCleskey has 167 career receptions for 1,865 yards and 17 touchdowns for the Cowboys. He ranks sixth all-time for OSU in receptions, ninth in touchdown catches. Coach Mike Gundy said McCleskey didn’t feel that he touched the ball enough. A new rule allows players to play in four games without burning a redshirt season, allowing McCleskey to be eligible to play in 2019 without being required to graduate.Hill, meanwhile, enters week five ranked fourth nationally with 8.43 yards per carry on the season and needs just three yards to become the ninth Cowboy in history to hit 3,000 career rushing yards. He also has a chance to tie a Big 12 record Saturday at 11 straight games with a rushing touchdown if he can find the end zone on the ground vs. the Jayhawks. His five rushing scores on the season rank 12th nationally and his 388 rushing yards are the most in the league.Wallace cemented his own mark on history over the past three weeks as he became just the third OSU underclassman to record three consecutive 100-yard receiving games. He ranks No. 6 nationally at 110.5 yards per game and No. 8 with 442 total receiving yards. All of those receptions were delivered by Cornelius, who ranks No. 8 in FBS with 1,229 passing yards on the season, No. 14 nationally with 325 yards of total offense per game and No. 17 nationally at 14.81 yards per completion.Defensively, the Cowboys lead the nation in sacks per game averaging 4.75 per contest and rank No. 5 nationally with 9.5 tackles for loss per game.

Why Bet on Kansas?

Kansas (2-2, 0-1) lost 26-7 at Baylor last week. KU entered the game with consecutive wins for the first time since a 2-0 start in 2011. A 31-7 victory a few weeks ago at Central Michigan ended the second-longest road losing streak in college football history, 46 games since 2009. But the Jayhawks still haven’t won a Big 12 road game in nearly 10 years. They have lost 41 true Big 12 road games in a row since a 35-33 win at Iowa State on Oct. 4, 2008.Though it is a relatively small sample size, though one-third of the 2018 campaign the KU defense has made huge strides in comparison to a year ago (after 4 games). The Kansas defense currently leads the Big 12 conference in seven categories, while ranking second in total defense (34th in FBS).Oklahoma State vs Kansas is set for Saturday Noon.The Jayhawks also rank second in the league and 27th nationally in scoring defense (18.3 ppg). Joe Dineen Jr. is climbing the Kansas tackles-for-loss chart after turning in a Big 12-best 25.0 in 2017. Dineen’s 25.0 stops behind the line of scrimmage marked a new KU single-season record. He now has 37.0 TFLs in his career, which ranks fourth on KU’s all-time chart.Kansas has put together a +12 turnover margin through its first four games of the 2018 season, which leads the FBS. The Jayhawk defense and special teams have combined to force their opponents into 13 turnovers.KU running back Pooka Williams Jr. is the first freshman in Jayhawk history to rush for back-to-back 100-yard rushing games to open his career. Williams owns the top rushing contest in the Big 12 thus far with his 163-yard performance in KU’s win over Rutgers. Williams has collected 288 yards on 32 carries, good for 8.7 yards per carry and three touchdowns.
