Showdowns lose luster

Kansas State and Oklahoma State were hoping to be undefeated in Big 12 play when they take on each other Saturday. Both lost last week, which means the conference has no unbeaten teams.

Some things to watch in the Big 12 Conference on the only Saturday in November when all 10 teams are scheduled to play:

GAME OF THE WEEK

No. 14 Oklahoma State at Kansas State. This was on track to be a November matchup of teams without a Big 12 loss, until the Cowboys (4-1, 3-1 Big 12) and Wildcats (4-2, 4-1) both lost on the final day of October. The outcome of this one could still have a significant impact on who plays in the Big 12 championship game. After a 27-point loss at West Virginia, Kansas State is looking to bounce back and assure a winning record in league play. The Wildcats, already with a win over streaking No. 19 Oklahoma, play next against No. 17 Iowa State, the only other team with one Big 12 loss. The first loss of the season for the Cowboys was in overtime against Texas. After their trip to Manhattan, they will again be away from home for Bedlam against the Sooners. Oklahoma State and Kansas State both have open dates next week.
