NCAA Football: Oklahoma at Kansas Jay Biggerstaff-USA TODAY Sports

It’s game day, Sooner Nation! We’ve made it to Week 9, and the No. 5 Oklahoma Sooners are on the road again to exert more of that Big 12 dominance on another conference foe. Those purple people up north known as the Kansas State Wildcats aka Purple Kansas are 4-2 on the season, 1-2 in Big 12 play, and are all about that no-nonsense approach. So how about the Crimson & Cream give them a nice dosage of dominance?

Head on down to the comments section for the game thread, where we’ll be asking questions, making predictions and discussing the day’s action with y’all.

Prediction

Oklahoma is waking up and playing football bright and early for the fifth consecutive contest, so the Sooners are beyond used to the drill. Jalen Hurts and his teammates are also familiar with navigating the Sunflower State, facing first-year coaches and massive underdogs, and that’s what they’ll be getting mixed up with when Kansas State opens its doors to OU.

Unlike the last time Lincoln Riley’s team played in Kansas, I don’t see this game starting off nearly as bumpy or sluggish. Call me crazy, but I don’t see Oklahoma punting on 4th and goal ever again (hopefully once in my lifetime was enough). K-State’s steady defense and methodical offense have been its calling card for years during the Bill Snyder era, and under Chris Klieman it’s been no different in that regard. With that said, the Sooners are humming on offense through the air on, on the ground, and most importantly, on defense (!). Oklahoma is too talented, too well-coached, too mission-oriented to be upset on this day.

Score: OU 51, KSU 21
