How long will we see the starters today, and will they have a complete performance?

NCAA Football: Kansas State at Oklahoma Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

The Oklahoma Sooners haven’t played a home game in 42 days, but the drought finally ends as the 0-6 Kansas Jayhawks come to town. However, that’s not the only drought that ends today, as Les Miles returns to graze on the Owen Field grass for the first time since his OSU team was stomped by a score of 52-9 back in 2003.

Final Thoughts

In OU’s 2017, 2018 and 2019 matchups with Kansas, the Sooners didn’t look particularly sharp against the Big 12’s cellar dweller. No, the threat of pulling a Texas was never in play, but Lincoln Riley’s bunch didn’t really steamroll KU in the manner that people had expected entering each game. With a bye week on the horizon and a Big Bedlam tilt coming the following week, will this team coming out with much fire when they take the field with the lowly Jayhawks? My guess is that OU doesn’t give us anything to complain about, but I’m also not necessarily expecting OU give KU the 2003 Texas A&M Aggies treatment. Some sloppiness wouldn’t surprise me.

The A-team would obviously cover the 38 if playing the entire game, but the second half of this game has garbage time scoring written all over it. I’ll take the over, and I’ll also take KU to cover.

What I’m really looking forward to, however, is the 2020 debut of Jadon Haselwood, who will take the field six months after suffering an injury while back home in Metro Atlanta.

Prediction

Oklahoma 52, Kansas 17
