The Jayhawks are looking for bowl eligibility and to get out of a three-game losing skid after starting the season winning five straight. The Cowboys hope to overcome the embarrassment of losing to Kansas State 48-0 last week.

The Pick

Oklahoma State +1.5

This is unfortunately not the game that will bring Kansas out of their losing streak. Oklahoma State got absolutely embarrassed last week, and this is a good matchup for them to prove themselves again. If Spencer Sanders can stay healthy for this weekend, I think that the Cowboys are able to win by a touchdown or two in Lawrence and stay in contention for the Big 12 championship game. This is a good Oklahoma State team, even if they didn’t look it last week.
