The Kansas Jayhawks are back on the road against an up-and-down Oklahoma State squad. Even though we proceed we definitely AREN’T the jinx, I still pulled the crew together for some last minute predictions. Want to know what to expect from today’s game? Read on!

Kyle_Davis21: Even without fans (or a full capacity), Stillwater is not a place that Kansas fans feel easy about their team traveling to. OSU hasn’t shot it well from three, but they are a scrappy team that plays good defense and grabs a good amount of offensive rebounds. OSU has lost three games, but none have been by more than three points. I think KU gets the win, but like the rest of the Cowboys’ conference matchups, it will come down to the wire. Kansas 73, Oklahoma State 70
dnoll5: I have no idea (once more) what to expect in a college basketball game this season. Traditionally, KU has had a hard time in Stillwater (as mentioned above), but will this year be different with different capacity rules? Not sure. What I am pretty sure of is that when KU is making threes, they seem to be pretty good. When those shots are clanging, scrappiness is needed. I’m gonna say that scrappiness will be needed today. Kansas 66, OSU 60.
Fizzle406: I know absolutely nothing about OSU this year. Are they good? Are they bad? Are they somewhere in between? Could be, I don’t know. I’ll go OSU because why not. Oklahoma State 77, Kansas 70
David: Top to bottom, Oklahoma State’s talent can’t match KU’s, even with Cade Cunningham. But this team is weird. They took down West Virginia by double digits, and followed it by getting thoroughly dismantled at home by Texas. They blew out TCU but played with fire against Oklahoma. The line on this is only KU -3.5 and Torvik sees it as closer than that. With this taking place at Gallagher-Iba, I’m bracing myself for the worst, and not a particularly pretty game. Oklahoma State 67, Kansas 64
Andy Mitts: Am I worried that Kansas could get upset in this game? Sure. I’ve been conditioned as a Kansas fan in general to expect the worst, especially since David McCormack is still super inconsistent and we don’t know when Bryce Thompson is coming back. But when Yor Anei transferred over the summer, it left a hole in the front line for the Cowboys, and I’m not sure they have the horses down low to make Kansas pay. Give me the good guys. Kansas 72, Oklahoma State 65
Mike.Plank: How quickly we forget. Kansas has defeated OSU five-straight times, including the last two trips to Stillwater. Will it be easy? Probably not. But on a more personal note: Monday evening was terrible for my family. I need this. Mr. T needs this. Win one for Miss Karen. We will miss you so much. Let’s go Jayhawks. Kansas 80, Oklahoma State 70.
