Halftime Report: KSU 10, OU 6

22 Sep

Not many people gave the Wildcats much of a chance going into Saturday night’s game in Norman, but through the first 20 minutes, Kansas State looked very capable of hanging with the Sooners, much more so than anyone would have thought.

The first half really came down to two plays.

1. Kansas State linebacker Justin Tuggle forced a fumble by Oklahoma quarterback Landry Jones on 3rd and 13, and when the ball tumbled away, fellow Wildcat linebacker Jarell Childs recovered it in the end zone. The touchdown gave Kansas State a 7-3 lead.

2. The Sooners had second and goal at the 1-yard line, and Blake Bell (the “Belldozer”) had lined up and was ready to take the snap. Fumble. Wildcat defensive back Ty Zimmerman fell on the football, and Kansas State’s defense got a well-deserved break.

Oklahoma has 184 yards of offense. Kansas State has 172. Most of the Sooners’ yards have come through the air; most of the Wildcats’ yards have come on the ground.

And now, it’s time for the second half.
