Skylar Thompson and Kansas State dealt a big blow to No. 5 Oklahoma’s national title hopes.

The Wildcats’ quarterback threw for 213 yards while running for four touchdowns, the defense did just enough against Heisman Trophy contender Jalen Hurts and the Sooners’ prolific offense, and Kansas State held on through a harrowing fourth quarter for a 48-41 victory Saturday.

It wasn’t certain until Oklahoma (7-1, 4-1) tried on onside kick with 1:45 left. The ball caromed downfield and the Sooners recovered, but a review showed one of their players touched it one yard early. (READ MORE) by Dave Skretta | AP

The Sooners took an early 10–0 lead in the first quarter before trading touchdowns and field goals with the Wildcats to hold a slim 20–14 lead late in the second. (READ MORE) by Jenna West | Sports Illustrated
