The last time Kansas State played an unstoppable offense, the Wildcats left Morgantown with a 55-14 win over West Virginia. Oklahoma State goes to Manhattan, Kan., this week with the nation's No. 1 offense, averaging 586 yards per game. Kansas State's defense, though, has a way of making you look like the nation's No. 71 offense.
No. 1 Alabama (8-0) at No. 5 Louisiana State (7-1)
