Well start times and television assignments are made more in next week's big well slightly got can't -- it -- right here on fox. That's at 11 o'clock it probable and the -- game at eleven we'll be Oklahoma State at the very. ABC's selected -- and M at Iowa State their 38 and at 7 o'clock primetime showdown between the red Raiders and sooners. Welcome back twelve showcase and I don't -- passing -- seven in the big twelve and another big game and other on Saturday Texas Tech has Kansas State coming to town for 6 o'clock battle. Right here on -- Here on the show we normally don't discuss points spread the conference in the NCAA so strongly discourage gambling but. Last week after K state beat Missouri some wildcats. Made the mention of the lack of respect K state was getting exemplified. But at Vegas oddsmakers put the Tigers at. Currently heavy favorite now five an OK state is ranked seventeenth in the eight people eighteenth and the coach as well but playing at Texas Tech on Saturday. Vegas again has case date as the underdog for the coaches this is still a battle of a prolific passing game against one of the league. Toughest defense. Not that this place in the offensive line spacing has a little bit different. What that it did. But you know just as far as -- is fine in those. Those games that. Best disrupt. You know the fences. Still pretty good at them. Their technique oriented players play hard. He's convinced -- that are good and they are -- they are you know it's a team sport does not individually didn't have a bunch starts over there most of -- But He gets a lot of his players and what He does He does it. As a team as a coaching staff and again they played Arabic when you win close games like they -- ones that means that -- do something right. Not they're scored a couple of late touchdowns on Kansas State to make it interesting last week but up until then it did appear to K state is pretty much a complete package that would -- did you see that. Continuing or did you see that continuing this week against Texas. Why you know last week I you know I I I think bill Schneider with the underdog thing. Think he's happy I could care less whether his team's favor or underdog whatever right now Kansas State -- got a winning formula. Best defense in the big twelve water torture kind of running game that dominates the clock K state leads the team at least a conference -- time of possession. And they had the ability to win close games or their five wins -- by a total of fifteen -- -- think Texas -- a struggle with is stopping the run. For the first page of bill Snyder's football Bible. Kind of pulled it -- not scored -- opponent is not have possession. The professor definitely get it done and getting it done in Manhattan figure one of the headline match -- is that it probably -- defense facing. Texas tech's offense which is ranked seventh in the NCAA so -- UC playing that. I think that what Texas Tech is -- offense that we -- set that your quarterback is really exceptional he's been able to throw the ball. Politically after you know -- that's -- probably and it fell off until they like to get the ball running and I've done a pretty good job running the ball that. So they last week 4466. Over 390 yards passing. In -- second to take care of the football and the running game was also picked up for -- they used it against. Kansas State I'm not sure Eric Stephens can be lost for the season how backfield for Texas Tech very very unfortunate for him but I think -- defensively. Rank seventeenth and actually three defensive categories you have to understand that or brown as a linebacker leaves him in tackles and he's a big play -- so I think this is a great matchup. But I wouldn't hold that against. In the state of they would not think this defense can -- just about anybody as they've shown early this season. We'll just after 8 o'clock and Lawrence Kansas the jayhawks will battle the Oklahoma Sooners value comes off a man handling of Texas and now get set to face the Kansas team. He gave up seventy points to Oklahoma State a week ago still Bob Stoops found creative ways of complementing the -- Got up there to Lawrence attained and obviously a week ago at Oklahoma State who's playing great you know didn't have a very good game but. When you look at them at home -- they have I'm sure there attain that as you know some teams. Are that way that they are much better at home -- they are on the road they just had to knock down you know fourth quarter game with Texas Tech. The week before at home where they. You know I went back and forth in that game in and ended up losing late but. So we we know they're very capable. Oklahoma so dominant last weekend against Texas Gary let's start with you first what impresses you most about this Oklahoma team and that trajectory it appears to be on. I think He -- family usually what starts here for Oklahoma and their this prolific but Landry Jones and his go to guy Ryan broadcast. He is on -- -- to -- the all time leading receiver in college football history you can only four catches away from NCAA record so I expect He did that. Defense when they were lights out against Texas this past weekend we need to force protecting -- -- talk about that I think Kansas didn't have very. Open attack here with their quarterback Jordan Webb I think if He can be very efficient run the football that's it. He's never took a big twelve in pass efficiency eighth -- so he's actually done a decent job. -- and making smart decisions and I think He gave here if you could be if He can do something for this team will be a big plus. -- I think about the only bright spot for kids is is this game is in -- they played better home. I don't think it's gonna be enough to beat Oklahoma if they happen to be Oklahoma I think it was going to be one of those historic type upsets. Kansas is probably gonna be without one of its top defensive backs and Jason Terry. And the way Candice is giving up yards and points like Dr. Phil gives out advice is just a bad bad news situation for Kansas in this game. Gentlemen thanks again we still have one more game to discuss this this area at Iowa state of your Olympic team looking to turn things around -- getting that match up.
