The skinny on Kansas State
The surprise team of the Big 12 so far this season suffered its first loss last week when the Wildcats were throttled by No. 6 Oklahoma 58-17. K-State is in the middle of the stretch that should define its season—after visiting Stillwater, the Wildcats face Texas A&M and Texas in back-to-back weeks.
Numbers to know
29: The number of turnovers OSU has forced this season, the most in the nation
8: The number of times K-State has turned the ball over this season, the fifth-fewest in the nation
OSU players to watch: Jeremy Smith and Josh Cooper
Cooper left the Baylor game early in the first quarter with a pulled hamstring, while Smith left in the third quarter with a hand injury. Mike Gundy said earlier this week that he did not believe either injury was serious, but if one/both players are limited or unavailable, it will be a slight blow to an offense already without Hubert Anyiam and Jonathan Rush for the season.
K-State player to watch: Collin Klein
The Wildcat quarterback is more dangerous as a runner than a thrower, giving the OSU defense a different type of challenge.
