Oklahoma understands it can completely change the way the game is played if it gets an early lead against Kansas State. The Wildcats want to run the ball and keep the Sooners offense off the field while scoring points of their own.

“We have to jump on them quick,” receiver Trey Metoyer said. “They’re a fundamental, sound football team. They keep the ball and like to run and pound it, run the clock off. Every chance we get, we got to make plays.”

If OU gets a double-digit lead, it could force the Wildcats to throw the ball more than they’d like to with quarterback Collin Klein.
