(Saturday, October 29th)
Final Score: (11) Oklahoma 58, (10) Kansas State 17
Manhattan, KS (Sports Network) - Landry Jones threw for a school-record 505 yards and five touchdowns, as the 11th-ranked Oklahoma Sooners used a dominant second half to hand the 10th-ranked Kansas State Wildcats their first loss of the season, 58-17.
"It is an honor to get one of those and just thank God that the offense executed and everyone was doing their job," said Jones on surpassing the 500- yard plateau.
Oklahoma outscored Kansas State 35-0 in the second half, and outgained the Wildcats 690-240 in the contest.
"It is unacceptable because we were in a tight game, and we were in a position to put in a go-ahead score. Across the board, we just did not get it done," Kansas State quarterback Collin Klein said.
Ryan Broyles caught 14 balls for 171 yards and a touchdown, while Kenny Stills added four receptions for 101 yards for the Sooners (7-1, 4-1 Big 12), who bounced back in a big way after seeing their 39-game home winning streak snapped last Saturday against Texas Tech.
Roy Finch carried the ball nine times for 74 yards and a touchdown.
Klein had 92 yards rushing and two scores on 26 carries for Kansas State (7-1, 4-1). He also completed 8-of-16 passes for 58 yards.
John Hubert accumulated 71 yards on the ground, and Tyler Lockett caught three passes for 24 yards.
After the Wildcats took a 17-14 advantage -- their only lead of the game -- with 12:44 remaining in the second quarter, it took just 1:24 for the Sooners to get back on top as Jones found Jaz Reynolds for an 18-yard score. The extra point was blocked to make it a 20-17 game.
Nigel Malone recorded his second interception of the game as Stills slipped on a deep pass late in the half, but Hubert fumbled as the Wildcats tried to run out the clock with 19 seconds left. Mike Hunnicutt's 53-yard field goal attempt just got over the bar as Oklahoma took a 23-17 halftime lead.
Klein was unable to move the chains on a 3rd-and-4 on Kansas State's opening possession of the second half, and Broyles broke free down the right sideline on Oklahoma's ensuing possession for a 29-yard score to give the Sooners a 30-17 lead.
Reynolds made a nifty one-handed reception in the end zone for a eight-yard score and Finch rumbled in from 31 yards out to give Oklahoma a 44-17 advantage heading into the final quarter.
Trent Ratterree came down with a 12-yard TD reception and Trey Millard had a 61-yard TD run to make it 58-17 in the fourth.
Oklahoma had all of the momentum early. Blake Bell scored from a yard out, and Dejuan Miller caught an 11-yard touchdown to give the Sooners a quick 14-0 lead midway through the first quarter. Oklahoma racked up 11 first downs before Kansas State was finally able to move the chains late in the first quarter.
The Wildcats finally found a rhythm and settled down offensively to rattle off 17 unanswered points.
Anthony Cantele nailed a 54-yard field goal to get Kansas State on the board, and Klein finally got his run game going on the Wildcats' third possession. He rushed three times for 55 yards on the six-play, 88-yard march, and powered his way for a 42-yard TD run on the first play of the second quarter to make it a 14-10 game.
Malone read Jones' eyes and broke on the ball to make his first interception of the game, and returned the pick 22 yards to the Oklahoma 47-yard line. Klein opened the ensuing drive with a 32-yard scamper, Hubert followed with a 13-yard run, and Klein finished the quick three-play drive with a two-yard TD plunge.
