NCAA Football – Week 4
Kansas State started the season ranked No.22 in the preseason AP Poll but has risen up the ranks with three routs by a combined score of 138-43. Last week against North Texas, the Wildcats failed to cover as 27-point home favorites after covering the spread in their first two games. With an average of 46 points a game, it is easy to see while their last two games have gone OVER the total.
The Wildcats are averaging just over 200 yards a game through the air, but they bring a powerful rushing attack into this contest that is averaging 251.7 yards a game. Running back John Hubert has led the way with 296 yards, but Collin Klein has shown some great versatility with 210 yards on the ground to go along with his 609 passing yards in the team’s first three games.
Bob Stoops probably has his best team in Norman in the past few seasons and it has wasted little time showing why Oklahoma is a legitimate contender for this season’s BCS title. The Sooners rolled up 69 points in their season opener against Florida A&M but looked less than impressive in a lackluster 24-7 victory over UTEP last Saturday as 29.5-point favorites on the road. Given the importance of this Big 12 opener, you have to believe that Stoops will have his team’s full attention come Saturday night.
Offensively, it has been an effective combination of both passing and running the ball with an average of 267.5 yards through the air and 277 yards on the ground. Landry Jones has completed 62.5 percent of his passes for 474 yards and four touchdowns while Damien Williams has rushed for 259 yards on just 20 carries. The defense has looked solid in both contests; giving-up a total of 20 points.
This is Kansas State’s opportunity to prove that it belongs in the upper tier of college football after a very successful season last year. While it probably will not come away with a victory in a very difficult place to win a game, stick with the Wildcats to throw a scare into Oklahoma by keeping this game much closer than the two-touchdown spread.
