The No. 19 Kansas Jayhawks face the Oklahoma Sooners in Norman this Saturday with kickoff set for noon ET. Kansas will be without their star quarterback, Jalon Daniels, who is expected to be out for the season after a shoulder injury against TCU.

Kansas looks to break a 17-game losing streak to Oklahoma, and the teams will enter with Kansas ranked and Oklahoma unranked for the first time since 1992.

The Pick

Kansas +9

This Kansas team can do it without Jalon Daniels, especially against an Oklahoma squad that has totally gone off the rails. A 49-0 loss to Texas last week for the Sooners really highlighted how far they’ve fallen, and Jayhawks backup Jason Bean is a solid player with in-game experience. The Jayhawks will cover.
