By the numbers


2- consecutive weeks that Tyler Lockett has taken a kick return for a touchdown

Lockett is starting to become a big-time player for the Wildcats. Against Texas Tech, his return came when the Red Raiders had just taken a 14-6 lead and appeared to be gaining momentum in the game.

Locket will be an important player in the game as he will be looked upon to give the Wildcats good field position so they do not have to go the length of the field against a tough Sooner defense.

13- the amount of years it has been since Oklahoma has lost consecutive conference games

Coach Bob Stoops has always been able to get his team back on track after a loss. Oklahoma is going to come out hungrier than ever against the Wildcats, and it is a key for the Wildcats to respond positively. This is going to be an incredibly emotional game with both games willing to do whatever to win the game. The Wildcats have to play within themselves and play the football that they have all year. Oklahoma is too talented of a team to shut down, they are going to make some plays and score some points. The Wildcats just cannot get down when something goes bad and respond with plays of their own.

14- the amount of rushing touchdowns by Collin Klein

Klein currently is the leader in the Big 12 in rushing touchdowns. His ability to master the zone read has enabled him to be able to have the defense to go after the running back, leaving him opportunities to score all of these touchdowns. With Klein continuing to improve as a passer, it is only going to open up more running room for Klein as the season goes on.

195- career high passing yards for Klein, set last week

Klein continues to improve as a quarterback, and as he does, it only makes the Wildcats that much more dangerous. Teams are starting to have to worry about the Wildcats throwing the ball, and what that does is open up the running game that much more. If Klein continues this improvement, he will become almost impossible for defenses to gameplan for.

572- the amount of yards that the Sooners allowed to Texas Tech

The Red Raiders were able to move the ball at will against the Sooner defense, both through the air and on the ground. Seth Doege had a field day throwing for 441 yards and four touchdowns.

With how effective of a running team that the Wildcats are, expect the Sooners to load up the box and have man to man coverage on the outside. If this happens, expect to see Klein to take some chances deep, especially going after Oklahoma cornerback Gabe Lynn. Lynn was picked on all day by the Red Raiders as he gave up countless amount of yards.

2003- the last time that the Wildcats beat the Sooners

Oklahoma came into the Big 12 Championship game regarded as the greatest college football team ever. What happened would go down in K-State history as one of the greatest victories in school history. The Wildcats dismantled the Sooners 35-7 to win the Big 12 Championship game. This is the same outcome that the fans are hoping for, and this promises to make Saturday one of the craziest days in recent Manhattan history.
