The No. 3 Oklahoma Sooners (7-0, 4-0) are coming off their most comfortable win of the season against an FBS opponent, and are now looking to continue their streak of good vibes north of the state border. Meanwhile, the Kansas Jayhawks (1-5, 0-3) are looking forward to the upcoming college basketball season. Will this matchup become more interesting than it needs to be? Share your thoughts in the game thread below.

Take it away, Toby.

Final Thoughts

Oklahoma has more talent than Kansas does at practically every position on the field. The Sooners also have more depth than the Jayhawks, more experience, and a culture imbued with a winning standard. Simply put, OU should not have any difficulty putting away this KU team today, but college football is the most exciting sport because there truly are no guarantees. That being said, I just don’t see anything wildly unexpected happening in Lawrence on this day. Here’s to all the stats being heavily padded and absolutely no injuries.

Prediction

Oklahoma 65, Kansas 9
