Oklahoma Sooners at Kansas State Wildcats (-5, 54)
Oklahoma quarterback Trevor Knight was solid in relief of Bell (undisclosed injury) last week while sophomore Kendal Thompson saw his first action late in the 48-10 win against Iowa State. Knight, who started the first two games of the season, had 123 rushing yards in the win. The Sooners are second in the Big 12 with 236.4 rushing yards and are ranked No. 13 nationally in total defense, allowing 326.5 yards.
The Wildcats are averaging 39.5 points and are plus-6 in turnovers during their win streak. Quarterbacks Jake Waters (111-of-183 for 1,690 yards, 10 touchdowns and six interceptions) and Daniel Sams (team-high 784 rushing yards and 11 TDs) have both appeared in all 10 games. Kansas State will likely be without senior safety Ty Zimmerman (ankle), who missed the last two games last season with a similar injury.
LINE: The Wildcats are 5-point faves after opening as low as -3. The total has dropped a half-point to 54.
WEATHER: Temperatures will be in the high-20s with sunny skies and wind blowing across the length of the field at 12 mph.
* Sooners are 4-9 ATS in their last 13 games following a SU win.
* Wildcats are 5-1 ATS in their last six games.
* Over is 5-1 in Oklahoma's last six November games.
Wisconsin Badgers (-16.5) at Minnesota Golden Gophers
ATS pick: Minnesota
The Badgers have scored from 31 to 49 points in each of the past 13 meetings with Minnesota, and have held Paul Bunyan's Axe since reclaiming it in 2004. However, this year could produce one of the series' lower-scoring affairs, as both teams rank among the nation's leaders in time of possession and red zone defense. Our records go back only to 1976, but this is the second-largest site-adjusted price on this matchup since at least then, despite Minnesota fielding what might be its best team in that span. This game is being billed as the Gophers' biggest in a decade, and we'll bite at a number this size despite the loss of top wideout Derek Engel.
