Oklahoma State will do everything it can to make talented Oklahoma freshman quarterback Caleb Williams as uncomfortable as possible.

Oklahoma State receiver Tay Martin had a season-high 130 receiving yards in the last game. Only Texas Tech has allowed more passing yards among Big 12 teams than Oklahoma.
Oklahoma has not turned the ball over in the last three games against Oklahoma State while the Cowboys have committed four turnovers during that span. As closely matched as these teams are, that could be the difference in the game.
There are 15 players in the Big 12 with at least nine tackles for loss and eight of them are scheduled to play in this game, so there could be plenty of disruptive defensive plays.
Oklahoma has won 17 of its last 20 road games and has covered against the scores and odds in seven of its last eight games at Oklahoma State.
Oklahoma State has covered in each of its last nine games against Big 12 foes.
