The game is on.
Since Sunday, rumors began to swirl around both Oklahoma and Kansas State that Saturday’s Big 12 Conference opener was up in the air. Unlike the Missouri State game, this time it wasn’t the Sooners who were on the threshold of being able to play.
The Wildcats had issues meeting the thresholds of being able to play against Arkansas State and were on the brink of not being able to play against Oklahoma. The Big 12 requires at least 53 players to be available, seven offensive linemen, four interior defensive linemen and a quarterback to be able to play a game.
Teams test three times a week and it appears the Friday tests are over. ESPN college football analyst and Oklahoma City radio host Dusty Dvoracek says both teams have been cleared and the game will be played on Saturday.
Kansas State gave Oklahoma its lone regular season loss in 2019 in a 48-41 upset at home. The Wildcats, though, lost their first game of 2020 to Arkansas State 35-31 in the first week of the season.
The Sooners and Kansas State will kickoff Big 12 play on Saturday at 11 a.m. CT.
