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...

Sooners look to regroup after loss to K-State

College football road trip week one recap

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...

No. 6 Sooners fall to No. 15 K-State 24-19

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.

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...

Kansas State Wildcats Scratch Out Sooners’ Championship Hopes

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 Victory over OU meme

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.

Dancing in the Ruins We're in the same boat on the same sea, and we're sailing south on the same breeze.

K-State shakes up Big 12, jumps to No. 7

With just two conference games in the books, the pecking order in the Big 12 has been shaken up.
