Midwest Sports Fans:
For the opening weekend of MSF-LaQuinta College Football Road Trip, our esteemed Founding Editor Jerod Morris will be in Norman, Oklahoma courtesy of the fine folks at LaQuinta.
He will be taking in the Big 12 Game of the Week between the #6 Oklahoma Sooners and #15 Kansas State Wildcats. I’ll try not to let my jealousy derail this preview.
And even though he didn’t ask me to go with him (jerk!), I’ll give Jerod some space at the end of the preview to discuss what he’s looking forward to most about this leg of the tip.
But first, let’s discuss the game.
Kansas State at Oklahoma
Both teams enter unblemished, but what is surely in the heads of both sides is the 58-17 shellacking that the then-11th ranked Sooners handed the then-10th ranked Wildcats last season. In fact, the series has been almost all Oklahoma for the last nine years, as OU has won 5 in a row and 8 of 9 overall.
Given how tough the Sooners are at home under Bob Stoops (42-1 in their last 43 games, a gaudy 77-3...
BEST OF MAXIM
MANHATTAN, Kan. -- Of the 103,000 miles on the family minivan -- a 2002 Chrysler Town & Country -- Jim McCord figures about 28,000 have been in pursuit of Collin Klein.
"Well worth the money," McCord chuckles. "And the time."
The unofficial president of The Collin Klein Fan Club happens to be a 73-year-old in Nokomis, Florida, a retired firefighter spending...
NORMAN, Okla Late in the fourth quarter with Kansas State trying to run out the clock and get out of town, Kansas State quarterback Collin Klein gained 5 yards when he needed 3.
On the other side of the field, Oklahoma never quite did get what it needed from its quarterback.
So it goes this season for Oklahoma and its record-setting quarterback Landry Jones. So it went Saturday...
Collin Klein still has plenty of room for improvement and he could jump right into the thick of the Heisman race with a thrilling upset in Norman.
More importantly, this is a Wildcats program that has a lot at stake here. They were obliterated at home against these Sooners one year ago and now “Optimist Klein” has a chance to lift his Wildcats into the top 10.
Landry Jones is...
Landry Jones came back for his senior season with No. 6 Oklahoma in part because he wanted one last chance to chase a national championship.
That chance could already be in jeopardy, and Jones knows he's a big reason why.
John Hubert ran for 130 yards and a touchdown, Jarell Childs scored on a 1-yard fumble return off of one of Jones' two turnovers and No. 15 Kansas State...
MANHATTAN, Kan. - Norman, Okla., will be the site for the 2012 Big 12 opener between the 3-0 Wildcats and 2-0 Sooners. The game could shape up to be one of dueling quarterbacks with Collin Klein at K-State and Landry Jones at Oklahoma.
Kansas State QB Collin Klein picked up 228 yards of total offense and absolutely s*** on the OU crowd with a late touchdown to defeat the Trash QB Sooners Landry Jones this Saturday night.
So tell me Sooners fans, is Oklahoma (2-1, 0-1 Big 12) better than Kansas State (4-0, 1-0) ? By the looks of Sofia Vergara’s boobs I would say no.
No. 15 Kansas State at #6 Oklahoma
Saturday, 7:30pm Eastern, FOX
Line: Oklahoma -14
While the rest of the college football world is mainly stuck playing meaningless non-conference games against the blind sisters of the poor we can thank the scheduling gods of the Big 12 for giving us a potentially Big 12 championship deciding game in the first week of conference...
Although the rankings told us that this game would be close, recent history would have suggested that No. 6 Oklahoma would win this match up and that the Sooners would win big. Oklahoma dominated the last five meetings, averaging wins of 22 points per game, including the 58-17 massacre in Manhattan, KS last year. But this is a different Wildcats team ...and a different Sooners...
NORMAN, Okla. (AP) -- John Hubert ran for 130 yards and a touchdown, Jarell Childs scooped up a fumble and returned it for a score and No. 15 Kansas State beat No. 6 Oklahoma 24-19 on Saturday night to avenge a wrenching loss from last season.
Collin Klein picked up 228 yards of total offense and ran for the go-ahead touchdown early in the fourth quarter in a solid performance that...
