This is shaping up to be a huge weekend around the nation. Much of what has been seen so far this season has not given many fans an in depth glance and what to expect. As conference play picks up for most teams, there will be a fair share of ranked opponents going head to head this weekend. A few upsets could be on the horizon with the potential to significantly shake up the polls.
The Oklahoma Sooners and Kansas St. Wildcats are two of those teams. With Heisman hopefuls stepping onto the field with the chance to win a Big XII Championship, dreams and egos will be crushed. In order for the Sooners to come into their own, the receivers must relish under the pressure.
What we have seen from the Oklahoma receiving crew is that Kenny Stills is the go-to guy averaging 120.5 yards per game. This was the Stills many fans expected to see last season as he was crowned the next number one receiver. It is the receivers that accompany him that will need to leave a mark on the field this Saturday.
Earlier this week, Matt did an excellent job of breaking down the numbers from the Kansas St. defense in the Game Day Vitals post. Here is his breakdown.
When throwing to Kenny Stills this season, Landry Jones' completion percentage is 76.2. On the rest of his passes? Just 55.8. #Sooners— Dane Beavers (@DaneBeavers) September 20, 2012
