Oklahoma vs. Kansas State final score: Sooners win 41-31


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.

    Serviceable? Did you watch the game. The kid completed 70% of his passes, ran for several first downs and managed 24 points in the first Q. KS had good luck in the 1st half because of the OU Defensive backs were frequently out of position altogether or just flat beaten. OU went on to score 17 in 2nd half when l late in 4th Quarter Stoops essentially shut his offense down to not run up the score on his mentor. Knight had 171 passing and 80+ running! I’ll take serviceable anyway! Clay had a fantastic day with several break away runs and 200 plus yards. I must have seen a different game. Oh by the way, Stoops has 158 victories, not 157. Don’t worry, AP missed the number as well.
