Kansas State Vs. Oklahoma Final: Wildcats Win 24-19

The No. 15 Kansas State Wildcats used two fourth quarter touchdowns to hold off a late rally and upset the No. 6 Oklahoma Sooners, 24-19.

The Wildcats scored 14 unanswered points on their first two possessions of the fourth quarter to take a 24-13 lead over the Sooners. Oklahoma answered with a touchdown of their own, but their two-point attempt failed and they were unable to get the ball back from the Wildcats.

Oklahoma got the scoring started, as their first drive resulted in a 28-yard field goal off the foot of kicker Michael Hunnicutt. Kansas State’s defense scored the game’s first touchdown, as they forced a Landry Jones fumble and returned it for a score. The Wildcats converted another Sooners’ turnover into three more points before Hunnicutt kicked his second field goal of the game, a 38-yarder, to make it 10-6 Kansas State at half.

Oklahoma regained the lead in the third, as Blake Bell scored on a three-yard touchdown run, but another turnover by Jones set up the Wildcats first score in the fourth.

Box Score Hero: Wildcats running back John Hubert rushed for 130 yards on 23 carries and scored the game’s decisive touchdown.

Rankings Ramifications: With their impressive win, the Wildcats will likely move into the top 10, while the Sooners could fall out.

But Did They Cover? Oklahoma didn’t manage to pick up the victory, much less cover the spread.

Collin Klein Listed Among Best Dual Quarterbacks In College Football

Kansas State Wildcats quarterback Collin Klein made The Sporting News list of the country's best dual-threat quarterbacks.

The list called Klein the "most valuable" of dual-threat quarterbacks in the country. Written by The Sporting News' Bill Bender, it does not specify what it means by "most valuable."

It cited four dual-threat quarterbacks as the best in the country and gave each a further distinction among the group: West Virginia Mountaineers quarterback Geno Smith, best passer; Michigan Wolverines quarterback Denard Robinson, best runner; Klein, most valuable; and Ohio State University Buckeyes quarterback Braxton Miller, best all-around talent.

The list also predicted that among that group, Smith was the most likely to win the Heisman Trophy.

Klein averages 203 passing yards and 70 rushing yards per game. He's thrown for five touchdowns and run for four.

Klein's No. 15 Wildcats and No. 6 Oklahoma Sooners kick off Saturday at 6:50 p.m. CT on Fox.

Oklahoma Vs. Kansas State: Sooners Have Never Lost At Home To Ranked Team Under Bob Stoops

If the No. 15 Kansas State Wildcats were to beat the sixth-ranked Oklahoma Sooners on Saturday, Sooners head coach Bob Stoops would be stooped in a way he's never been stooped before.

Stoops has been the Oklahoma coach since 1999, and he has never lost a home game to a ranked opponent.

Both teams are undefeated so far this season, but that doesn't illustrate how dominant Stoops' Oklahoma teams have been at home against quality opponents. The Sooners are 14-0 at home against ranked opponents during Stoops' tenure, and they're also 44-2 against Big 12 teams at home. Those two losses: Nov. 24, 2001 against Oklahoma State, 16-13, and Oct. 22, 2011 against Texas Tech, 41-38.

The Sooners own the all-time series against Kansas State. Oklahoma has gone 71-17-4 against the Wildcats. Kansas State's last win in Norman was a 26-7 win over the John Blake-coached Sooners on Oct. 25, 1997.

The No. 15 Wildcats and No. 6 Sooners kick off Saturday at 6:50 p.m. CT on Fox.
