A few weeks ago, it looked like this was going to be a lopsided matchup, but Oklahoma State has played much better in recent weeks. The Cowboys have scored 45, 48, 39, and 29 points in their last four games, which included a win against Kansas. Oklahoma is coming off of a loss to Kansas in a game that had some pretty bad weather, but the Sooners defense really struggled to get stops in that game. Oklahoma has a very solid offensive attack and they have scored 31 points or more in four straight. I think we are going to see a higher scoring game in this matchup, so I like the over in this one.
