The Oklahoma State Cowboys will travel to Lawrence, Kansas on Saturday to face the Kansas Jayhawks. The Cowboys have beaten the Jayhawks two years in a row by a combined score of 118-42.
They have been dominant, but with new players at key positions, the series may be ready to turn in the Jayhawks’ favor. The overall series has been very close, with Oklahoma State holding a narrow 31-29-2 edge, but they have gone 7-1 against Kansas in the Big 12 era. As a player and coach, Mike Gundy has never lost to the Jayhawks in Lawrence.
That is a solid trend, but all trends must end at some point. This Saturday could be the end of that one. New Jayhawk head coach Charlie Weis has the Jayhawks playing solid football, and they are no longer the pushovers that they have been in years past.
Each team is looking for its first Big 12 win of the 2012 season, and each will be fighting tooth and nail to get that win. Following is everything you need to know about this matchup.
