The Oklahoma Sooners come out of the Red River Rivalry unscathed. I'm not even sure if they broke a sweat beating down their rival Texas, 55-17. The Sooners will make their way into Lawrence, Kansas Saturday night to try and notch another Big 12 victory against Kansas. The Sooners aren't expected to face much competition, at least defensively from Kansas, as the Jayhawks are coming off allowing 70 points to Oklahoma state, 50+ of those 70 points came in the first half.
Owen over at Rock Chalk Talk, SB Nation's Kansas blog, bemoans the fact that Kansas are the biggest underdog they have been all season heading into the game against Oklahoma.
Every time you think you might be hitting bottom, it seems to get a little worse. This week the Jayhawks do return home which is something at least. On the other hand they draw the Oklahoma Sooners and what is the latest and now LARGEST underdog line that Kansas has faced all season long.
The danger for an upset here is slim, if not at all, but Kansas does not want to get flat out embarrassed like they did last week against Oklahoma State. Unfortunately for Kansas, Oklahoma's offense is just as explosive.
