Rapid Reaction: Grading the Sooners in Their Stunning Loss to Kansas State
Matthew Emmons-US PRESSWIRE

With 4:09 remaining in the fourth quarter, the No. 6 Oklahoma Sooners' defense took the field with only one mindset: force a three-and-out and give Landry Jones and the offense one last shot to win the game.

Following a 10-yard touchdown grab by Sterling Shepard, the Sooners only trailed the No. 15 Kansas State Wildcats 24-19.

However, in what was a trend all game long, the Wildcats converted on third down. Twice. 

With that, the Sooners' early season mistakes finally caught up with them as they fell 24-19.

Gone was the chance of a perfect season.

Gone was the 14-0 home record against ranked opponents under Bob Stoops.
