No. 15 Oklahoma St trying not to look past Kansas


Kansas at No. 15 Oklahoma State

When: Saturday at 3 p.m.

Where: Boone Pickens Stadium in Stillwater.

Radio: KEOK, FM-102.1.

TV: Fox Sports 1.

Record: OSU 7-1 (4-1 Big 12); Kansas 2-6 (0-5).

Line: OSU by 31.

Series record: OSU leads 32-29-2.

At stake: Coming off its fourth straight victory, an impressive 52-34 win over No. 25 Texas Tech, Oklahoma State must avoid overlooking a seemingly inferior opponent, with the Big 12’s top three teams (Texas, No. 5 Baylor and No. 12 Oklahoma) coming up next on its schedule.

Key matchup: Oklahoma State’s high-powered, fast-paced offense, led by senior QB Clint Chelf and junior RB Desmond Roland, up against a Kansas defensive unit that ranks ninth out of 10 Big 12 teams in scoring defense (averaging 32 points against per game) and eighth in yardage (446.6 per game).

Players to watch

Kansas: WR Rodriguez Coleman is developing into the big-play threat that the Jayhawks have needed, recording four receptions for a total of 160 yards and a touchdown in the last two games. The junior transfer from Garden City Community College could turn the tide in Kansas’ direction.

Oklahoma State: QB Clint Chelf will be starting for the third game in a row. In addition to stabilizing the passing game in last week’s big win over Texas Tech by completing 18 of 34 passes for 211 yards and two touchdowns, Chelf has also emerged as a running threat, rushing for 88 yards and two touchdowns on just six carries.

Notes: Oklahoma State is 16-1 in its last 17 home games, since the start of the 2011 season, including seven in a row. . Kansas, which is 1-8 in its last nine against the Cowboys, owns the Big 12’s worst offense, averaging just 17.1 points and 292.5 yards per contest.
