Kansas State Vs. Oklahoma Final Score: Wildcats Rally To Defeat Sooners

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.
