Oklahoma 41, Kansas State 31 (FINAL)
The Sooners wrapped up an impressive road victory.
Backed by a vicious ground attack, quarterback Trevor Knight had no problem leading the offense in his first start since Week 2. He finished with 171 yards, a touchdown and an interception on 14-of-20 passing. Knight also added 82 yards and another score on 14 carries.
Running back Brennan Clay also rushed for a career-high 200 yards and two touchdowns on 31 carries. Oklahoma racked up 301 of its 472 total yards of offense on the ground.
Meanwhile, the Wildcats couldn't follow up a stellar first half.
Quarterback Jake Waters connected with star receiver Tyler Lockett for three touchdowns in the second quarter alone. The scores went for 90, 48 and 30 yards.
But that was as good as Kansas State's offense got.
Lockett finished with a school-record 278 yards and three scores on 12 grabs. Waters finished 17-of-29 for 348 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions. He also added a score on the ground.
But it was the mistakes that doomed a Wildcats team that had committed 20 turnovers coming into this matchup—more specifically, a fourth-quarter interception by Waters that Zack Sanchez returned for a touchdown.
With the win, Sooners head coach Bob Stoops became the winningest coach in Oklahoma history, with 158 victories, surpassing Barry Switzer.
The loss snaps Kansas State's four-game winning streak.
