Oklahoma football kicks off its Big 12 season against the Kansas State Wildcats. Here are three bold predictions for the Sooners.

Both the Oklahoma Sooners and the Kansas State Wildcats are in different positions in their seasons heading into Big 12 play.

Oklahoma is riding high from their 48-0 win over Missouri State two weeks ago. The country saw the potential in how good Spencer Rattler can be and how he’s already a Heisman candidate. Oklahoma’s defense pitched a rare shutout allowing just 135 yards of total offense.

Kansas State’s first game didn’t go as well losing to the Sun Belt Conference’s Arkansas State 35-31 in Manhattan. While the Wildcats offense performed well, their defense leaves questions after Arkansas State’s Jonathan Adams caught three touchdowns on Kansas State’s defense.

Oklahoma flexed their muscles in their first game despite not having some players available including kicker Gabe Brkic and running back T.J. Pledger. While it isn’t known why they sat out, Sooners coach Lincoln Riley already announced the team would not be announcing their COVID-19 results to not give other teams an advantage.

The Sooners and Wildcats are looking to get off on the right foot in conference play, especially Kansas State. Losing to a Sun Belt team of any level of talent is a tough pill to swallow. Oklahoma has an opportunity to take advantage of and lower Kansas State’s moral even more.

Here are some bold predictions for Oklahoma in the upcoming Big 12 game.
