Three things about Oklahoma State
1. This isn't the first time Mike Gundy has had to adapt without his top wide receiver in the lineup. Last year, the Cowboys went much of the season without Dez Bryant, who now plays for the Dallas Cowboys.
2. OSU is highly ranked on offense and special teams. Dan Bailey hasn't missed a field-goal attempt this season and is the nation's top-rated kicker. Punter Quinn Sharp leads the country with an average of 48.2 yards per punt.
3. The last time OSU won in Manhattan was 1988 with Barry Sanders as the running back.

K-State's defensive line vs. Oklahoma State's running game. If it can't make Kendall Hunter work for his yards, the Wildcats are in for a long afternoon.

Without some serious help from its defensive counterparts, K-State's offense is not strong enough to outscore Oklahoma State.
