Under the lights of Oklahoma Memorial Stadium, on a big stage, Bob Stoops rarely loses at home. He doesn’t give up too many to Bill Snyder either.
However, with some massive mistakes and an inability to make plays when necessary, Snyder and Kansas State pulled off the upset over the sixth-ranked Sooners, 24-19.
Collin Klein and the Cats improved to 4-0 thanks to a big day from the K-State defense. The Sooners on the other hand were unable to win their Big 12 opener, and the schedule does not get any easier.
Landry Jones was 28-43 on the day and collected 298 passing yards. Jones threw one touchdown through the air, but a pick and a fumble that resulted in a K-State score really set Oklahoma back.
The run game looked good in spurts, but as the game progressed, the Cats were able to limit the Sooner rushing attack.
Penalties may have been the biggest killer to Oklahoma. They only had four, but a holding penalty that called back a big Damien Williams rushing touchdown was costly.
Though, Kansas State flat out played better. Oklahoma could not stop them on third down when it counted, and allowing 213 yards on the ground from K-State was deadly.
The Sooners had their shots to score, which included a lost fumble via Blake Bell on the goal line. It just wasn’t Oklahoma’s night, but Kansas State got their revenge, and the Sooners fall to 2-1 on the year.
A bye week will be helpful, but trips to Lubbock and the Red River Shootout in Dallas will be very interesting.
