Well that ended that.
Oklahoma State’s loss to Kansas State crushed the dream of getting another shot at Oklahoma with the Big 12 Championship and a possible chance at the CFP on the line. Mason Rudolph and company made it fun late, but it was too big a hill to climb.
Now the Cowboys can claim the No. 3 spot in the Big 12 pecking order, which doesn’t mean anything other than the honor of being the best of the rest.
Kansas would like to be be the best of anything other than being the worst Power Five team in college football.
It’s not just that the Jayhawks aren’t winning; they’re not having any fun whatsoever. And now they’re being jerky – not shaking hands with Baker Mayfield to start the OU game last week, and with a few late pops.
Obviously a win would make the season, but the Cowboys might be a wee bit pumped up to do something massive after last week’s disaster.
One Reason Why Oklahoma State Will Win
It’s Rudolph’s final game in Stillwater.
One of the greatest quarterbacks in the fantastic history of Cowboy passers, he threw for 425 yards and three touchdowns in the loss to the Wildcats, to go over the 4,000-yard mark for the second year in a row.
How hot is he? Texas held him to without a touchdown.pass, and TCU kept him to two. Those were the only two times this year he failed to throw at least three touchdown passes.
Kansas has allowed three touchdown passes or more seven times this year. It’s about to do that in the first half.
One Reason Why Kansas Will Win
Kansas doesn’t have a Byron Pringle – the Kansas State star who returned a kickoff for a score and caught three touchdown passes. But it has shown the ability from time to time to start bombing away.
Can Carter Stanley start chucking and keep throwing well? He couldn’t do anything against a horrible Oklahoma pass defense, but the Jayhawks aren’t going to shy away from throwing.
The defense will allow at least 40 points. The only hope will be for the Cowboys to come in unfocused now that they don’t have anything to play for and don’t have the intensity. They’re going to think this is a light scrimmage against a miserable team.
What’s Going To Happen
This will be a light scrimmage against a miserable team.
There might be a shot at an OSU letdown if this was on the road, but not on Senior Day, not at home, and not with a ten-win season still a possibility.
Rudolph and the passing game will put on a show.
