Saturday’s game will be the fifth national broadcast for Oklahoma State, and the fourth straight. It will be the Cowboys’ second game on ABC this year as well. It will be the Sooners’ fifth nationally televised game, and third on ABC.
Last week, the Cowboys narrowly escaped with a win as the team sidled past the Kansas State Wildcats 20-18. Oklahoma State’s RB LD Brown filled up the stat sheet, picking up 110 yards on the ground on 15 carries. Brown’s performance made up for a slower contest against the Texas Longhorns two weeks ago.
Of course, this is the Big 12, and that means Oklahoma State’s defense will need to generate points if it hopes to win. That naturally starts with quarterback Spencer Sanders; he has shown he can produce on big stages (throwing for 400 yards and four touchdowns to one interception in an overtime loss to Texas), but is coming off a subpar outing in a 20-18 win over Kansas State (14 of 24 passing, 108 yards, no touchdowns. He’ll need to have a special game for Mike Gundy’s first Bedlam in six years.
If Sanders can’t get it going early, look for the Cowboys to try and establish Chuba Hubbard: He hasn’t eclipsed 100 rushing yards in a game since Oct. 24. That said, he’ll face off against the Big 12’s top-rated rush defense on Saturday: The Sooners allow only 98.6 yards per game.
With that, here’s everything you need to know to watch Oklahoma State vs. Oklahoma on Saturday, including kickoff time, TV channels and more.
How and what to watch for No. 14 Oklahoma State vs. No. 18 Oklahoma
College Gameday will be in Norman this weekend to watch as the 5-1 Oklahoma State Cowboys try and knock off its in-state rival, the 5-2 Oklahoma Sooners Saturday night.
The Cowboys were one of the favorites to win the Big 12 coming into the season, and they’ve performed well. But its been on the strength of its defense, not its offense. Oklahoma State has the 8th ranked defense in the nation, according to SP+. It will need to be every bit as good as it has been this season as it takes on the fifth-best offense in the country by that same metric. The Sooner offense ranks in the top 30 of every single statistical category and ranks in the top 15 of many of the most important ones. The team’s passing success rate, which means they get half of what they need on first down, 70% on second and 100% on third downs, is ninth-best in the country. The Cowboys’ defense ranks fourth in stopping opposing teams from getting those successful plays however.
Oklahoma: The Sooners lost to some decent teams to start Big 12 play. Iowa State and Kansas State were certainly good enough to knock off the Sooners at a time when they’re still getting themselves together. Ever since beating Texas, Oklahoma has been a more cohesive group. A few get-right opponents in a row didn’t hurt, nor did getting running back Rhamondre Stevenson and defensive end Ronnie Perkins back from suspension. But this team is playing better on both sides of the ball. Role players like H-back Jeremiah Hall are stepping up. Now they’ve had a week to get a little healthier. A win over Oklahoma State and the Sooners are a hot team.
Oklahoma State: The Cowboys are technically the underdog. That’s usually been the case here. But this particular Bedlam game still feels like a window for Mike Gundy’s group. They have the defense, which ranks in the top 10 of SP+. Either Chuba Hubbard or LD Brown has had a big day running the ball. Receiver Tylan Wallace has showed up in a bunch of games, the Texas loss most of all. It hasn’t always been pretty, but this team has enough pieces to find different ways to win. If they can find a way against Oklahoma, the road to the Big 12 Championship Game gets much clearer. This is a huge game for Oklahoma State.
Oklahoma vs. Oklahoma State prediction, picks
Oklahoma State has shown it can win in a variety of ways, but most typically leans on its defense. Will that hold up against a red-hot Sooners offense? The Sooners are now the Big 12 leader in points per game by six points. The Cowboys have players at every level and the matchup between them and guys like Hall or receiver Marvin Mims should be great. That defense has been more than enough to keep Oklahoma State in every game. I think that holds up again, at the very least to cover the spread. Pick: Oklahoma State +7
