Kansas (3-7) vs. Oklahoma (9-1) Game Preview
One Reason Why Kansas Will Win
It’s not like the Oklahoma defense is stopping anyone.
It you can throw a forward pass, you can come throw on this secondary. TCU and Kansas State struggle at that, but everyone else in the Big 12 has been able to crank out 300 yards at will.
Peyton Bender has yet to hit the 250-yard mark, but he’s been able to wing it around a bit with two touchdowns or more in four of the last five games. There’s just enough offense on the Jayhawks to let it fly – and it’ll have to against this OU O.
With Kansas, it’s all about the turnover margin. The defense isn’t great at stopping anyone on a regular basis, but it’s fantastic at coming up with takeaways.
Oklahoma hasn’t given the ball away in four of the last six games, but in those other two … it gave it up twice against Texas, and twice in the close call against Texas Tech.
If an unfocused Sooner team starts giving the ball away, this might be interesting.
One Reason Why Oklahoma Will Win
Alabama is pretty good at this whole offense thing. It’s averaging 539.5 yards per game. It’s fourth in the country in total O.
UCF is very good at this whole offense thing. It’s averaging 543 yards per outing, and Houston is second in the country averaging just over 546 yards per game.
Oklahoma? 577.1 yards per game.
On passing yards alone, Oklahoma has more than the total yards of eight teams. On just rushing yards, it has gained more than UTSA’s total yards. The Sooners are averaging 577 yards per game, and Kansas has only gained more than 300 yards once – coming up with 544 in the win over Rutgers.
Kyler Murray and the Oklahoma passing attack have been unstoppable, coming up with 310 yards or more five times in six games, hitting home run after home run.
The Jayhawk secondary has allowed more than ten yards per throw over the last four games. It’s about to get hit hard.
What’s Going To Happen
Kansas will come up with some good offensive moments, but only after the Sooners come up with a massive first quarter. It’s the final home game of the year for OU, and it’s not going to come out flat.
Unlike the last few games, there won’t be any drama for Oklahoma as it gets ready for the showdown at West Virginia.
