STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) _ Oklahoma State was considered the preseason favorite to win the Big 12 and after a 3-0 start, the No. 21 Cowboys seemed well on their way.
Following a 30-21 loss at West Virginia last weekend, Oklahoma State (3-1, 0-1 Big 12) is looking to rebound Saturday at home against Kansas State (2-2, 0-1) and prove they still deserve contender status.
The Wildcats, who are the defending Big 12 champions but lost many key seniors, are coming off a bye week that followed a 31-21 loss at Texas on Sept. 21. After stumbling in their season opener, losing 24-21 to FCS power North Dakota State, K-State won two in a row before three turnovers, including two fumbles inside the red zone, cost them against the Longhorns.
