Kansas State, winners of two in a row and four of its last five, hits the road on Saturday to take on the 22nd-ranked Oklahoma Sooners in Norman.

The game will be televised nationally by Fox Sports Net as Joel Meyers (play-by-play), Dave Lapham (Analyst) and Jim Knox (Sideline) will have call from Memorial Stadium. A live audio broadcast is also available across the K-State Sports Network, online at www.k-statesports.com and on SIRIUS satellite radio channel 127.

K-State and Oklahoma are both coming off conference wins this past weekend and will meet for the 91st time on Saturday. The Sooners lead the all-time series, 69-17-4, while the Wildcats are 6-9 against Oklahoma under head coach Bill Snyder. The last time a Wildcat team won a game in Norman was a 26-7 decision back in 1997.

A QUICK LOOK AT THE WILDCATS
K-State improved to 4-0 at home with its win over Colorado and also moved to 3-1 in Big 12 Conference play for the first time since the 2000 season. The last Wildcat team to start 4-1 in league play was the 1999 squad, which went on to finish 7-1.

The Wildcats continue to showcase their ability to be a power running team as Daniel Thomas is coming off a career-high 145-yard performance against Colorado, which was the second-highest rushing output in a conference game this season. K-State, as a team, has rushed for over 200 yards in two straight games and four total this season, and currently ranks 25th nationally and second in the Big 12 in rushing.

The Wildcat defense has been the biggest reason for K-State’s current two-game lead in the North standings. K-State held Colorado to 244 total yards last week, which included a span of 12 straight Buff drives that went for a total of 79 yards. In its last two games, K-State has forced 10 turnovers and collected 10 sacks after recording just 11 turnovers and six sacks in the first six games of the season combined. Jeffrey Fitzgerald has been a force up front defensively with his 6.0 sacks, while Emmanuel Lamur leads the squad in tackles with 41. Tysyn Hartman continues to put up All-Big 12-like numbers as he has collected 37 tackles, six pass breakups and four interceptions on the season.
