The Best of Social Media after a Big 12 Shakeup During OSU’s Bye Week

The Cowboys were safely nestled into their off week while the rest of the Big 12 went nuts. No. 6 Oklahoma lost its conference opener to Kansas State in Norman. No. 22 Texas fell to Texas Tech. And Kansas keeps winning with a victory over Duke. The Jayhawks are 4-0 for the first time since 2009 and sit atop the league. Let’s see what the internet has to say about all that craziness.

No. 6 Oklahoma To Face Nemesis Kansas State

Kansas State (2-1) at No. 6 Oklahoma (3-0), Saturday, 8 p.m. ET (FOX) Line: Oklahoma by 12 1/2, according to FanDuel Sportsbook. Series record: Oklahoma leads 77-21-4. Oklahoma has looked dynamic in all phases during a 3-0 start and is in prime position to make a run at a playoff spot under first-year coach Brent Venables. Kansas State has been a thorn in Oklahoma’s side in the past, defeating the Sooners in 2012, ’14, ’19 and 2020. Another loss to the Wildcats, who are coming off a loss to Tulane, would severely cripple Oklahoma’s playoff and Big 12 title hopes, especially with possible tough challenges against Texas, Baylor and Oklahoma State remaining.
