Three keys to victory for the Oklahoma Sooners vs. Kansas State

After sprinting through their non-conference schedule relatively easily, 2022 Oklahoma Sooners set its sights squarely on ascending to the top of the Big 12. The climb starts on Saturday with a home game against a Kansas State team that’s been far from kind to Oklahoma in the past few years.

Stranger things have happened, and Oklahoma, led by first-year head coach Brent Venables, will have to be on their game.

K-State has some pieces that could make this game interesting, and if caught sleeping, Oklahoma could be in a bar fight against Chris Klieman’s team from Manhattan, Kansas.

Since his freshman year, Deuce Vaughn has been a thorn in Oklahoma’s side. While he’s extremely short in stature, he’s a “big dawg” on the field. He’s a legitimate playmaker.

He scored 22 total touchdowns last year and is the focal point for the K-State offensive attack. Oklahoma’s done a good job bottling up marquee players for opposing teams, but none of them compare to Vaughn.

Up Next: Put it on the quarterback

Make Adrian Martinez beat you

If you’re not going to let Deuce Vaughn beat you, that means the onus falls on transfer quarterback Adrian Martinez to do so.

Martinez, a transfer from Nebraska,…
