Our staff gathers to tell you what they expect to see in today's game.
The Kansas Jayhawks return to the field today in search of the ultimate victory they need to qualify for a bowl this season, and the opponent is an Oklahoma State Cowboys team that lost a major to Kansas State and an undisclosed position from quarterback. Struggling after.
With questions about the health of not only Spencer Sanders but other top players on the roster, can the Cowboys generate enough points to surpass the Jayhawks' high-octane offense?

Brendan DzwierzynskiK-State chose the worst time to humiliate Oklahoma, so I predict the Cowboys are going to be angry. Now, does that mean they'll be angry enough to beat a Kansas team that's approaching a bye week with starting QB Jalon Daniels?
Well, in a word, yes. First of all, we don't know whether it will be Jason Bean or Daniels or a combination of the two, and the two, with the exception of the KSU debacle, Pokes still average 39 points per game.
Derek KnowleyObviously, I would feel a lot better about this game if Jalon Daniels was healthy enough to play, but I really have a good vibe for this game. The spread has gone as far as a touchdown in a few places, and I have a feeling (but no inside info) that it will be Gunnar Gundy who gets the call from Oklahoma State.
If so, it becomes a more manageable outlet for KU defense. Avoid costly penalties on defense and focus the ball on offense and I think the Jayhawks will secure bowling eligibility.
After getting freshly prepared and ready in bye week, the Jayhawks will begin one of the toughest remaining schedules in college football.
