Arizona faces a tough test in its second game against Oklahoma State, and as such, the Wildcats have opened as an 11-point underdog.

Betting has opened for Arizona’s home game Saturday against No. 19 Oklahoma State, and the Wildcats open as 11-point underdogs to the high-scoring Cowboys.

Oklahoma State is coming off a first week in which it set quite a few firsts, or at least firsts-in-a-while. The Cowboys opened as 67 1/2-point favorites against Savannah State, which is the largest line Vegas has ever set for a college football game.

Still, Oklahoma State covered the spread and then some. It won 84-0, rushing for a school-record nine touchdowns. It was the school’s most lopsided win since it beat Southwestern Oklahoma 117-0 in 1916.

The Wildcats won their first game in the Rich Rodriguez era in overtime, a 24-17 victory over Toledo. Despite the low scoring output, Arizona showed some early signs it had taken well to Rodriguez’s signature spread offense. The Wildcats totaled 624 yards of total offense.

Arizona’s game against Oklahoma State is at 7:30 p.m. PT Saturday.
