Although the rankings told us that this game would be close, recent history would have suggested that No. 6 Oklahoma would win this match up and that the Sooners would win big. Oklahoma dominated the last five meetings, averaging wins of 22 points per game, including the 58-17 massacre in Manhattan, KS last year. But this is a different Wildcats team ...and a different Sooners team too.Looking to make an example out of Oklahoma, No. 15 Kansas St. marched into Norman and pushed around the Sooners in route to a 24-19 defeat and sent a strong warning to the rest of the Big 12 that put every one else on notice.The Good: Kansas St. DefenseFrom the beginning, the Wildcats defense was on point, playing a huge role in the victory. They held the Sooners offense to two field goals in the first half. They also forced and recovered two fumbles, the first which was returned for a touchdown. The second fumble was just as big of a play as it prevented a threatening Sooners offense from scori...

College football fans are the best, aren’t they?
Our friend Jerod Morris of Midwest Sports Fans is doing a four-week college football road trip sponsored by La Quinta (which is sponsoring this post), and his first stop was in Norman last weekend to watch Oklahoma lose to Kansas State.
In his recap of the game, (and he has plenty of cool pics and videos for you to check out),...
Oklahoma quarterback Landry Jones thinks the Sooners are still in the national championship race, although he acknowledges he'll have to play better for them to have a chance.
Jones has accepted most of the blame for No. 16 Oklahoma's 24-19 home loss to Kansas State on Saturday, after he fumbled to give the Wildcats one touchdown and threw a momentum-killing interception...
NORMAN, Okla. — Sooners Illustrated caught up with quarterback Landry Jones to get his thoughts on his struggles the other night and what has to change.
The first leg in my four-week college football road trip sponsored by La Quinta featured a lot of history.
Unfortunately for the 2012 Oklahoma Sooners and their fans, the history that was made on Saturday night was of the ignominious kind as the 6th-ranked Sooners lost 24-19 to the 15th-ranked Kansas State Wildcats.
How rare was Oklahoma’s whimper of a performance in front of...
Landry Jones came back for his senior season with No. 6 Oklahoma in part because he wanted one last chance to chase a national championship.
That chance could already be in jeopardy, and Jones knows he's a big reason why.
John Hubert ran for 130 yards and a touchdown, Jarell Childs scored on a 1-yard fumble return off of one of Jones' two turnovers and No. 15 Kansas State...
Landry Jones critical mistakes against the Kansas State Wildcats show the senior’s season hopes of a championship are just too far-reaching. Jones’ first turnover came near his own goal line, when he was hit by K-State’s Justin Tuggle which jarred free the ball allowing the Cats to pick up a 7-3 lead and most of the momentum for the rest of the game.Jones is not solely to...
Kansas State QB Collin Klein picked up 228 yards of total offense and absolutely s*** on the OU crowd with a late touchdown to defeat the Trash QB Sooners Landry Jones this Saturday night.
So tell me Sooners fans, is Oklahoma (2-1, 0-1 Big 12) better than Kansas State (4-0, 1-0) ? By the looks of Sofia Vergara’s boobs I would say no.
For the opening weekend of MSF-LaQuinta College Football Road Trip, our esteemed Founding Editor Jerod Morris will be in Norman, Oklahoma courtesy of the fine folks at LaQuinta.
He will be taking in the Big 12 Game of the Week between the #6 Oklahoma Sooners and #15 Kansas State Wildcats. I’ll try not to let my jealousy derail this preview.
And even though he didn’t ask me...
NORMAN, Okla. — Head coach Bob Stoops fielded questions on the weekly Big 12 teleconference about his team's upcoming contest against Kansas State, and Sooners Illustrated has all the discussion.
Coming into Saturday night's match-up with the Kansas State Wildcats, it had all the makings of a game that Oklahoma typically dominates.
This is not a typical Oklahoma team.
Kansas State's 24-19 upset win marked Bob Stoops' first home loss to a ranked team. Prior to the game, OU was 16-4 coming off of a bye under Stoops. The Sooners had lost to Kansas State...
Dancing in the Ruins
We're in the same boat on the same sea, and we're sailing south on the same breeze.
After Oklahoma's loss to Kansas State on Saturday, the Sooners find themselves in the same position as USC with dwindling chances of winning a BCS title this season. (Dr. Saturday)
Oklahoma quarterback Landry Jones takes the blame for the Sooners...
We knew nothing substantial about Oklahoma after two games. Needless to say, the intel after the Kansas State game is not good.
*Sterling Shepard looks every bit like the star many folks thought he would be. Give Heupel some credit for putting him into the game to give Landry Jones two slot-like targets. He made plays when KSU tried to take away Kenny Stills...
NORMAN, Okla. (AP) -- John Hubert ran for 130 yards and a touchdown, Jarell Childs scooped up a fumble and returned it for a score and No. 15 Kansas State beat No. 6 Oklahoma 24-19 on Saturday night to avenge a wrenching loss from last season.
Collin Klein picked up 228 yards of total offense and ran for the go-ahead touchdown early in the fourth quarter in a solid performance that...
NORMAN, Okla. — For the first time in the Bob Stoops era and the first time since Kansas did so back in 1995, the Sooners have lost a ranked matchup at home, as the No. 15 Kansas State Wildcats stormed into Gaylord Family-Oklahoma Memorial Stadium and walked out with a 24-19 upset victory over the 6th-ranked Sooners.
