Line: Oklahoma (-4.5)
This contest would have been a lot more intriguing if the Oklahoma Sooners didn’t drop their first game of 2015 last weekend and if the Kansas State Wildcats would have pulled off the upset against the TCU Horned Frogs.
Now, Kansas State has two losses on the year and will have to try to play the role of spoiler the rest of the way. Meanwhile, the Sooners still have a shot at winning the Big 12, but who knows if a one-loss Big 12 squad can make it to the College Football Playoff, which is the ultimate prize.
Last season, of course, both TCU and the Baylor Bears ended the regular season with one loss. As a result, both were snubbed big time when it came to the playoff. So, good luck, Oklahoma.
Here’s a few things fans can expect in this game: In bold fashion, I am predicting this contest to be the most entertaining game of the week, a ton of points will be scored and one team will still have a shot at the playoff when this one comes to an end.
Therefore, it is up to Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield to get off to a hot start, and to stay on fire for the rest of the game.
PREDICTION: Sooners 42, Wildcats 38
