“For moving around, the guys did a pretty good job,” offensive line coach Bill Bedenbaugh said.

The shifting went even further as Kasitati is usually the extra lineman brought in for short-yardage situations.

That pressed Dionte Savage into action.

“I trust those guys,” Bedenbaugh said. “It's one of those things where if I feel guys are playing better, I'm not gonna roll guys just to roll. We're fine.”

WIND, COLD MAKE CONDITIONS DIFFICULT

The weather was cold, with temperatures around 25 at kickoff.

But the bigger factor was the wind.

It was never more important than early in the fourth quarter, when Mark Krause's punt from the Kansas State 3 got caught up in the wind and Jalen Saunders ran up, caught the ball at the 33 and returned it to the original line of scrimmage.

Brennan Clay scored on the first play of the next drive.

Kansas State scored just seven of their 31 points going into the wind.

EXTRA POINTS

As expected, running back Damien Williams and wide receiver Lacoltan Bester missed the game due to suspension. Nose tackle Torrea Peterson, quarterback Blake Bell, linebacker Jordan Evans and running back Keith Ford missed the game due to injury. … The Sooners have won 10 consecutive games against opponents they lost to the previous season. … The Sooners are now 62-1 under Stoops when rushing for 300 yards or more.
