Kansas State Vs. Oklahoma State Final Score: Collin Klein, Wildcats Fall In A Heart Breaker 52-45

Kansas State came up just a little short in a wild game that saw both teams combine for 32 points in the fourth quarter alone. The Wildcats fall 52-45 to Oklahoma State after Collin Klein's desperation pass fell incomplete in the end zone on the final play of the game. 

The Wildcats briefly took the lead with 5:16 to go in the game on a Klein four yard run to make the score 38-37. That lead was short lived as Brandon Weeden quickly found Justin Blackmon on a 54 yard pass and run that put the Cowboys back in front. The two point conversion was good and Oklahoma State led once again 45-38. 

Kansas State responded with a long kick return on the ensuing kick off and once again tied the score at 45-45 with a Collin Klein 12 yard touchdown run with 3:18 to go in the game. The Cowboys needed just 1:02 to go back ahead as Joseph Randle sprinted 23 yards for the eventual game winning touchdown. 

It looked like Klein was going to be able to pull off a miracle yet again as he willed the Wildcats down the field but was unable to complete three tries into the endzone. 

Klein finished 22 of 38 for 231 yards with one touchdown and one interception. He did most of his damage with his legs runing for 144 yards and three more touchdowns. 

Klein's performance nearly overshadows the performance of Brandon Weeden who threw for 502 yards and four touchdowns. Justin Blackmon caught seven passes for 205 yards and two touchdowns. Tracy Moore finished with nine catches for 146 yards and a score.

Kansas State Vs. Oklahoma State Game Time, TV Schedule And More

 

Kansas State looks to bounce back from its first loss of the season when it travels to Boone Pickens Stadium to take on the No. 3 Oklahoma State Cowboys. It is their second straight match up against a team from Oklahoma and the Wildcats have to hope that this week's game turns out better than last. 

During last week's loss to Oklahoma, Kansas State held a 17-14 lead in the second quarter but went on to lose by a 58-17 score at home. The Wildcats' defense was shredded allowing 690 yards including over 500 yards passing by Landry Jones

Things won't get any easier against the Cowboys who are averaging just under 50 points per game and over 550 yards of total offense per game. Oklahoma State is also playing for the opportunity to move up in the BCS with No. 1 LSU and No. 2 Alabama playing each other on Saturday. All the Cowboys would have to do to move up would be to get by Kansas State with a victory. 

Game date, time: Saturday, November 5, 8:00pm ET

Location: Boone Pickens Stadium, Stillwater, Ok

TV: ABC or ESPN 2

Radio: Kansas State Radio Network

Streaming: ESPN 3

Kansas St. Vs. Oklahoma St. Odds: Wildcats Are Heavy Underdogs In Stillwater

For the odds-makers, the bloom is definitely off the rose in Manhattan after Kansas State's ugly 58-17 home loss to Oklahoma last weekend. This week, the No. 17 Wildcats travel to No. 3 Oklahoma State, where they are +21 underdogs.

Before last week, Kansas State was one of the year's biggest surprises, going 7-0 and entering the top ten of the polls for the first time since head coach Bill Snyder's last tenure in Manhattan.

But they had only one victory over a ranked team, a 36-35 home win over Baylor, so their home date with the Sooners was widely seen as their first true test.

And after hanging with Oklahoma for a half, the flood gates opened in the second, with the Sooners scoring 35 unanswered points. Landry Jones threw for 505 passing yards and 5 TD's, while Oklahoma exploited Kansas State's one-dimensional offense, as starting QB Collin Klein threw for only 58 yards on 8/16 attempts.

Oklahoma State's offense, with 28-year old QB Brandon Weeden throwing to returning Biletnikoff Award winner Justin Blackmon, is just as potent as their in-state rivals. The Cowboys have averaged 49.9 points a game this year while racing out to a 8-0 record, but they've been held to only 34 a game in their two meetings against ranked foes.

The over/under on Saturday's game is 67.5 points, with the Wildcats likely hoping for a final score much lower, as controlling the ball on the ground and shortening the game is their best chance of pulling off an upset that would rock the college football world.
