Why Kansas State will win
1. Offensive systems could favor Kansas State: Many of Kansas State's struggles against North Texas stemmed from the Mean Green keeping possession of the ball over 14 minutes more than the Wildcats. That sort of game plan ? that kept Collin Klein on the sideline ? doesn't suit Oklahoma's offense. If OU has a couple early three-and-outs, and K-State can sustain long drives by powering through OU's run defense, it could spell trouble for the Sooners.
