Oklahoma vs. Kansas


Date: Saturday, October 31

Kickoff
: 3:30 p.m. ET

Venue

Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield and RB Samaje Perine should have a field day against the hapless Jayhawks, who have yet to win a game so far this season. The only bright side for Kansas has been a good pass rush, that might be able to put pressure on Mayfield, if ever so slightly. Oklahoma rolls to an easy win.


Pick: Oklahoma


Spread: Oklahoma -39
