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.
