OKLAHOMA VS. KANSAS STATE

When: 11 a.m. Saturday

Where: Bill Snyder Family Stadium, Manhattan, Kan.

TV: Fox Sports 1 (Cox 67/HD 728, Dish 150, DirecTV 219, U-verse 652/1652)

Radio: KOKC-AM 1520, The Franchise-107.7 FM

Scouting Kansas State

Record: 6-4, 4-3 Big 12; coming off Saturday's 33-31, last-second victory at home over TCU.

Best player: Ty Zimmerman. The senior safety has recorded 69 tackles and three interceptions this season, but was lost early in Saturday's win over TCU to an injury. If he can't play against the Sooners, it would be detrimental to the Wildcats' defense.

The case for Kansas State: The Wildcats ride a four-game winning streak into the Oklahoma game and appear drastically improved from the beginning of the season.

The case against Kansas State: Oklahoma's offense may have found an identity with Trevor Knight at quarterback. If Knight starts against Kansas State and the Sooners establish a strong ground game, Oklahoma's defense is playing well enough to earn a tough road win.
