OSU Football: Kansas State At A Glance

Posted: Updated:

Oklahoma State (4-0) hosts Kansas State (3-0) at 3 p.m.on Saturday at Boone Pickens Stadium. Here are some quick facts to get you more familiar with the matchup.

  • OSU and KSU have split the past four meetings, with each team winning both of their home games.
  • This is the first time in three seasons that Kansas State has started 3-0.
  • KSU beat Louisiana Tech last week. The last time the Cats were taken to extra time was on Nov. 12, 2011 against Texas A&M, when they beat the Aggies in 4OT.
  • The Wildcats are coming off of a bye week, and coach Bill Snyder has a history of succeeding with some extra prep. Just last year, KSU triumphed in both of their Big 12 contests after a bye, winning at Oklahoma and West Virginia.
  • KSU ranks 82nd in the country in defending the pass. That’s not ideal considering the Cats haven’t played a Power Five school yet. Those problems could continue considering safety Dante Barnett might not play.
  • Sticking with that theme, Oklahoma State ranks 19th in the country in passing yards per game. We’ll see if Mason Rudolph can bounce back from his Texas performance.
  • Flipping the script, Kansas State’s passing attack has been quite lackluster. Quarterback Joe Hubener has thrown for just 585 yards in three games, one of which went to triple-OT.
  • The Wildcats haven’t exactly exploded on the ground, either. Leading rusher Justin Silmon has amassed 210 yards, while Hubener has scrambled for 105 on his own. Reminder: this has come against three non-Power Five schools.
  • No Wildcat receiver has more than eight catches this season.
