The Oklahoma State Cowboys and Kansas Jayhawks play Saturday at Memorial Stadium.

Walsh, Oklahoma State has scored a combined 82 points in its last two games. Daxx Garman is completing 58.6 percent of his passes on the season and has five touchdown passes and four interceptions in his last two games. Oklahoma State has 18 passing plays of 25 or more yards, and four different players have more than 200 receiving yards, including Brandon Sheperd who leads the Cowboys with 277 yards. Desmond Roland has topped 80 rushing yards in three straight games and has scored at least once in every game he’s played in this season. Oklahoma State is 12-1 SU in its last 13 regular season games when scoring 30 or more points. Defensively, the Oklahoma State Cowboys are allowing 25.6 points, 376.8 yards, and have forced six turnovers and 15 sacks. Ryan Simmons leads Oklahoma State with 25 solo tackles and Josh Furman has seven tackles for loss.
The Kansas Jayhawks are just going through the motions with losses in three of their last four games. Kansas has scored just 14 points in its last two games and has shown little signs of turning things around. Montell Cozart is completing just 49.6 percent of his passes for five touchdowns and seven interceptions and the Jayhawks have just nine passing plays of 25 or more yards. The only consistent thing offensively for Kansas this season has been Corey Avery and De'Andre Mann, a running back duo that has combined for 613 yards and two touchdowns. Tony Pierson leads Kansas with 163 receiving yards and one touchdown. Defensively, the Kansas Jayhawks are allowing 27 points, 419.4 yards, and have forced 10 turnovers and six sacks. Ben Heeney leads Kansas with 49 tackles and Dexter McDonald has two interceptions.
The Cowboys are 7-2 ATS in their last 9 conference games and 9-4 ATS in their last 13 games overall. The Jayhawks are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 home games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Cowboys are 9-2 ATS in their last 11 meetings.
The Kansas Jayhawks have no answer for the amount of offensive firepower the Oklahoma State Cowboys have. Oklahoma State has scored 40 or more points in seven of its last nine games against Kansas. This has blowout written all over it and getting the line just under three touchdowns seems to be the way to go.
