The Oklahoma State Cowboys look to remain unbeaten and have lost just three home games since 2013. Mason Rudolph is completing 63 percent of his passes for 1,892 yards, nine touchdowns and seven interceptions. Rudolph has thrown six picks in his last three games. David Glidden and Marcell Ateman have combined for 802 receiving yards and six touchdowns while James Washington has 21 receptions. The Oklahoma State Cowboys ground game is averaging 137.5 yards per contest, and Chris Carson leads the way with 295 yards and three touchdowns.

Jordan Sterns leads the Cowboys with 56 tackles, Emmanuel Ogbah has 7.5 sacks and Ashton Lampkin has four pass deflections.
The Jayhawks are 9-19 ATS in their last 28 games in October and 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The Cowboys are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 conference games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games in October. The Jayhawks are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 meetings in Oklahoma State and 3-9 ATS in their last 12 meetings overall.
Two of the last three meetings between these teams have been decided by seven or less points. And while Kansas isn't winning games at all, the Jayhawks have played well enough to trust with a great deal of points. Kansas kept its Texas Tech matchup within 10 points and was able to score 23 points on Memphis.
While OSU should win easly, I'll take a stab with the points here.
