No. 1 Oklahoma hits the road for another Big 12 road test at Kansas State Saturday at 5 p.m. CT inside Bramlage Coliseum. OU, which is 19-2 overall and tied atop the Big 12 standings at 7-2, is in its fifth season under head coach Lon Kruger. The Wildcats are 13-9 this season (2-7 Big 12) and are under the direction of Bruce Weber, who is in his fourth campaign in Manhattan.
