The Kansas St. Wildcats are the latest team to fall from the undefeated ranks as they were not able to keep pace with the Oklahoma Sooners. Oklahoma handily defeated Kansas State 58-17 by the way of the arm of Oklahoma quarterback Landry Jones who had a career day with a school record 505 passing yards and threw for five touchdown passes n the route.
The first half Kansas State was able to keep pace by the legs of quarterback Collin Klein, but in the second half the Oklahoma defense shut down the Kansas State offense by posting a shutout in the second half. On the day Klein finished with 92 rushing yards with two touchdowns and only 58 yards through the air.
The Oklahoma offense took off in the second half by scoring 35 unanswered points. The Oklahoma passing game is what Kansas State could not defend as Jones threw three of his five touchdowns in the second half. Wide receiver Ryan Broyles lead the way with 14 receptions for 171 yards and a score; Kenny Stills also eclipsed the 100-yard mark with 101 yards on only four receptions.
The loss puts Kansas State at 7-1 and next weeks matchup will not get any easier as they face the No. 3 ranked Oklahoma St. Cowboys.
