The first half in Manhattan was wild. Trickeration, field goals, and a disqualification are the take-aways from the first two quarters as the Wildcats lead the fifth ranked Sooners, 24-23.
Sooners struck first with a season long 44-yard field goal from Gabe Brkic. The first-year kicker went on to end the half with an even long, 50-yard kick, finishing the half 3/3 and remaining perfect on the year.
Kansas State has seemingly had their way rushing the ball against the Sooner defense. The Wildcats ended the first half with only 105 yards, but it felt like so much more. K-State finished the half with 204 total yards.
Trickeration was the name of the game. The first two plays for OU were successful as they both ended for big gains. The third resulted in an interception and a subsequent TD for the Wildcats.
Jalen was very effective with his arm and legs against the K-State defense. Hurts ended with 204 yards passing and 65 yards on the ground, leading the game in both categories.
The Oklahoma defense failed again for the 13th quarter in a row to get a turnover. If the Wildcats are going to continue to eat away at the clock, this game will come down who can force a turnover and get a stop in the fourth quarter.
Parnell Motley also disqualified for kicking an opposing player. The true freshman Jaden Davis will play the remaining of the game. Only three scholarship CBs on the roster coming into the game.
Sooners need to make some adjustments and dominate the line of scrimmage on defense if they want to win going away. If they fail to do so, the Wildcats could walk away with their fifth victory of the year.
