Cats Fend Off No. 5 Oklahoma's Late Game Rally to Get the Win.

First top 5 home win for KSU since 2006 against number 4 Texas.

I'm still stunned about what the Kansas State Wildcats pulled off yesterday. I don't think anybody expected the final result to include a KSU victory. What started out pretty scary turned into a great game to watch and experience. Oklahoma did some Oklahoma things to start the game by scoring and scoring quickly. The Wildcat offense stepped on the gas in the 2nd and the ground game was tremendous. The Cats had 213 yards on the ground, led by Gilbert who had 105 and a touchdown. Skylar also punched in 4 touchdowns on the ground, while also throwing for 213 yards. The Cats defense also looked really good in the 2nd and 3rd quarter. At the end of the half AJ Parker picked off a wide receiver throw from an OU trick play.

With 12:54 left in the 4th quarter KSU scored a touchdown to go up 48-23. The Sooners answered quickly with a long touchdown. They continued to score and make it a 7-point game with 1:45 left on the clock. Oklahoma then had successfully recovered an onside kick until it was reviewed and in fact had been touched by an OU player before going the 10 yards required. Kansas State fans rejoiced as Skylar Thompson took a knee and gave them the biggest home win since 2006. Today, the Wildcats moved back into the rankings at 22. Next Saturday Kansas State will make their way to Lawrence to take on the rival Jayhawks. Catch the game on FS1 at 2:30pm.
