The Oklahoma Sooners vs. Kansas State Wildcats line was coming in at Sooners -23.5.

TV: Noon ET, ABC. LINE: Oklahoma -23.5.

ABOUT OKLAHOMA (7-0, 4-0 Big 12): Hurts has generated a passing efficiency rating of at least 245.0 five times - the only FBS player since at least 1996 with more than three such efforts in a season - while last Saturday's 308.5 passer rating was the second-best figure in school history (minimum 15 attempts). Junior CeeDee Lamb, who is tied for the FBS lead with 10 receiving touchdowns despite watching his eight-game scoring streak come to an end, ranks seventh in yards per catch (22.0) and 11th in receiving yards per game (97.3). Sophomore Kennedy Brooks is the only Oklahoma running back to handle at least 10 carries in each of the last two games, rushing for 185 yards and a score on 20 attempts over that span.

ABOUT KANSAS STATE (4-2, 1-2): Thompson completed only 11 of his 23 pass attempts versus the Horned Frogs, but he led the team with 68 yards rushing, getting a career-high 61 of those early on the eventual game-winning 95-yard drive. Sophomore Nick Lenners hauled in a 21-yard TD grab to open the scoring against TCU - ending a 57-game drought in which Kansas State tight ends had not scored - while senior Dalton Schoen moved into a tie for 23rd place in school history with 1,244 receiving yards. The defense ranks among the best in the country on third down (23.9 percent conversion rate, second in FBS), passing yards allowed (152.5, fifth) and pass efficiency defense (105.88, 10th).
