Against Kansas State, one of the teams it has struggled the most with over the years, Oklahoma aims to maintain its perfect record.
Kansas State has managed to shock Oklahoma three out of the previous five times it has traveled to Norman, a difficult feat given that Oklahoma has only lost eight games there since 2012.
Everyone’s favorite darling long shot to perhaps crash the party and win the Big 12 this season was Kansas State. It appears that Cinderella may not fit into the glass slipper after all following a 16-10 defeat to Tulane at home.
After destroying Nebraska 49-7 on Saturday in Lincoln, Oklahoma appears to be even more of a force than in previous seasons.
With Adrian Martinez and Deuce Vaughn on the field, you’d think Kansas State’s offense would be producing more stats than it currently is.
When it comes to their offensive plays, the Wildcats rush the ball on 62.50% of them. They average 4.9 yards per play, so it hasn’t been particularly effective. The Cats are 53rd in rushing success rate and rank 89th in EPA/Rush.
Martinez has also had a terrible passer rating. Through three games, Martinez’s squad ranks 116th in passing success rate and 130th in passing explosiveness, while he has averaged 4.9 yards per attempt.
The Wildcats’ ability to move the ball against Venables’ defense is difficult to predict.
