Oklahoma's 24-19 loss to Kansas State on Saturday was the Sooners' first to a ranked team at home under Bob Stoops.
Before the loss, OU had won 14 consecutive games vs. ranked opponents at Owen Field in a streak that dated back to 1999.
The Sooners were also held without a first-half touchdown for the first time since the 2005 season opener.
The Sooners lost that game to TCU, 17-10.
OU had scored at least one touchdown in the first half in 43 consecutive games during that streak, which also spanned 24 conference games.
STOOPS-SNYDER SHARE MOMENT
As Stoops shook hands with Kansas State coach Bill Snyder after the game, Stoops sent Snyder away with a message.
“Coach, I love you,” Stoops told Snyder as he walked off the field.
Snyder, who coached Kansas State when Stoops and brother Mike were there in the early 90s, appreciated the gesture.
“I share the same thing with Bobby and with Mike (Stoops, OU's defensive coordinator),” Snyder said.
K-STATE GETS REVENGE
Kansas State's Jarrell Childs said last season's 58-17 Sooners win in Manhattan weighed on the minds of the Wildcats during the week.
“We were thinking about that a lot,” Childs said. “We wanted to return the favor.”
Childs had a big part, scoring a defensive touchdown early in the second quarter after Justin Tuggle's hit jarred the ball from Jones at the Sooners' 1-yard line.
Childs scooped it up as he rolled into the end zone to put the Wildcats ahead.
“The ball just kind of fell in my lap,” Childs said. “I was kind of shocked.
“I have to credit Justin Tuggle for the play. He knocked it free and I just got lucky that it came to me.”
WHALEY GETS THE START
Even after back-to-back impressive performances by reserve Damien Williams to start the season, Dominique Whaley once again started at running back.
Whaley got off to a hot start, carrying four times for 27 yards in the first seven offensive plays for OU.
Whaley finished with nine carries for 51 yards.
Williams' first carry — late in the Sooners' 15-play opening drive — went for a two-yard loss and he finished with 10 carries for 34 yards.
THOMPSON PLAY HELPS TURN THINGS WILDCATS WAY
Tramaine Thompson had a 26-yard reception on third and 12 early in the fourth quarter to keep a drive alive that proved to be the dagger against the Sooners.
Thompson's reception gave the Wildcats the ball at the Sooners' 32 and four plays later, Kansas State scored to go up 24-13.
The junior receiver from Jenks had three catches for 49 yards.
Tulsa Washington product Tyler Lockett had four catches for 37 yards and added a 22-yard kickoff return.
The Sooners largely avoided punting the ball toward Lockett.
MAKING THE CALL
Early in the fourth quarter, the Owen Field crowd was sent into a frenzy when referee Tom Walker announced the Sooners would be awarded the ball after it initially appeared Lockett touched the ball before the Sooners recovered.
Walker's call, though, was contradictory.
“First touch, Oklahoma; Oklahoma ball,” Walker initially announced.
As the crowd roared, Walker quickly corrected himself.
“Correction, illegal touching by the kicking team; first down Kansas State,” Walker explained.
SOONERS SWITCH UP AT DE
With Kansas State's run-first attack, the Sooners shuffled things up on the defensive line.
Sophomore Chuka Ndulue started at defensive end along with David King.
Ndulue started in place of R.J. Washington, who is known more for his pass defense.
King had started the first two games at tackle, in place of Casey Walker, while Ndulue had taken King's spot at defensive end. Walker, who missed the first two games for personal reasons, returned to the starting lineup.
* Sterling Shepard became the seventh freshman in Sooners history to put up a 100-yard receiving game and the first since Ryan Broyles had 141 at Cincinnati in 2008.
