Surviving a huge first half from Kansas State Wildcats wide receiver Tyler Lockett, who had 206 receiving yards and three touchdowns before halftime, the Oklahoma Sooners were able to pull away late and leave Bill Snyder Stadium with a 41-31 win. The Sooners are now 9-2 on the season, and the Wildcats fell to 6-5.
The win by Oklahoma was especially sweet because it moved head coach Bob Stoops past the legendary Barry Switzer for the most wins in school history. Stoops has now won 158 games as the head coach of the Sooners.
Oklahoma was led by running back Brennan Clay, who finished the game with 200 rushing yards on 31 carries. His strong performance helped alleviate some of the pressure on freshman quarterback Trevor Knight. Knight filled in the for the injured Blake Bell and was serviceable in replacement duty, throwing for 171 yards and accounting for a pair of touchdowns.
For those who missed the game, here are some of the highlights.
