Is there any more low-key top 10 team than Oklahoma? The Sooners haven't gotten much national attention after games against UTEP and Florida A&M. Kansas State will give them a serious challenge, particularly on defense.
The overlying story for Oklahoma, particularly in regard to the NFL Draft, is how quarterback Landry Jones does against pressure. He's a more mobile quarterback this season, but that doesn't stop him from being erratic against the blitz. Kansas State has some unsung defensive linemen who can get into the backfield, so Jones will be tested.
After the jump, player watch lists, a question for the game and a key matchup.

Key matchup: Oklahoma safety Tony Jefferson against Kansas State quarterback Collin Klein
At this point, everyone knows about Klein and his Tim Tebow comparisons. Klein is competing 72.9 percent of his throws this season and is always a threat to run the ball. Jefferson finally returned to practice this week, and is expected to play. He's an in-the-box safety, so Klein will have a harder time running against a stacked box. But can Jefferson keep up when he's asked to drop in coverage?
Question of the day: How does Landry Jones look?
We can't judge Jones yet this season due to the teams he's played. But what we do know is that he's down in weight, which has led to head coach Bob Stoops saying multiple times that Jones' mobility is up. It will have to be against the Wildcats' Arthur Brown. Despite playing with an ankle injury, Brown is one of the more athletic linebackers in college football.
