Prediction

In this matchup, the Oklahoma State Cowboys enter as +12.5-point underdogs, but our prediction is that they will cover the spread.

Despite their recent losses, the Cowboys have shown competitiveness in their games. They have the potential to keep this game close and cover the substantial spread. The Cowboys been plagued with insecurity at the quarterback and running back positions, as well as damaging turnovers. However, after a bye week and with some of those position fights resolved, anticipate an improved performance from a team that has won three of the last four meetings in this rivalry. Look for the Cowboys to step up defensively and make it challenging for Kansas State's offense to dominate. 

Conclusion

Friday night's showdown between Kansas State and Oklahoma State promises to be an exciting Big 12 clash. While the Wildcats aim for a second straight win, the Cowboys are determined to end their losing streak and prove they can compete at a high level. Don't be surprised if the Cowboys cover the +12.5 points spread in what could be a closely contested game.
