Five things to know about Kansas State

• The Wildcats have lost two in a row. Kansas State has struggled at the start of Big 12 play, losing 40-34 to Texas in double-overtime, then falling 26-6 against TCU.

• K-State has a question mark at quarterback. Regular starter Jesse Ertz is injured, which means Alex Delton could make his second consecutive start this weekend.

• The Wildcats have struggled offensively. In addition to the 26-6 loss to TCU, K-State lost 14-7 to Vanderbilt earlier this year. The Wildcats rank 90th in total offense.


• This is still a Bill Snyder team. K-State is fundamentally sound and has played respectably on defense, ranking 39th in scoring defense and benefiting from a plus-six turnover margin.

• The Sooners have recent history on their side. Oklahoma is 6-0 in Manhattan since 2000, with each win coming by double digits.
