The Kansas State Wildcats pulled one of the biggest upsets of the college football season, beating Oklahoma 48-41 in Manhattan.
Wildcat quarterback Skyler Thompson had a solid day through the air, going 18/28 for 213 yards, but no touchdowns. He did most of his damage with his legs, finding the endzone four times on the ground, more times than he had all season prior to today. The Wildcats rushing attack was what ended up being the deciding factor, rushing for 213 yards as a whole.
Heisman hopeful Jalen Hurts did all he could, throwing for 395 yards and one touchdown while adding three of his own on the ground.
It's the first loss for a Sooner that's looked like world-beaters through the first seven weeks of the season, outscoring opponents 353-136 heading into this game.
Kansas State has quietly been having a good season under new head coach Chris Klieman, who made a name for himself building the North Dakota State dynasty at the FCS level. The Wildcats are now 5-2 with their only loses at Oklahoma State and to undefeated Baylor.
