Kansas will face its fourth top-25 ranked opponent in the last six games when the Jayhawks travel to Oklahoma State for a Big 12 Conference match-up with the No. 11 Cowboys on Saturday. The 3:05 p.m., contest at Boone Pickens Stadium in Stillwater, Okla., will be televised nationally on Fox Sports 1.
The Jayhawks, who have lost six straight, are looking to return to the win column but will face another tall task against a team averaging more than 40 points per game and nearly 450 yards per game. Kansas played top-25-fringe-dweller Texas tough on the road last week, but a 14-point surge late in the third quarter that included a defensive touchdown put the game out of reach.
Oklahoma State has put up more than 50 points in each of its last two games, includiing a, 52-34, win last week against then-No. 15 Texas Tech, and has won four straight Big 12 games after stubbing its toe at West Virginia to open conference play. Oklahoma State is 7-1 overall and ranked 14th in the BCS rankings.
Oklahoma State has won three straight against Kansas, and eight of the last nine in the series that sits at 32-29-2 in favor of the Pokes. Kansas doesn't have to reach too far back for memories of success in Stillwater, however, having won 43-28 at Boone Pickens Stadium in 2007.
