Ed Zurga/Getty Images(NORMAN, Okla.) -- A blocked extra point and a pair of missed field goals helped the 14th-ranked Kansas State Wildcats knock off number 11 Oklahoma, 31-30, on Saturday. Sooners kicker Michael Hunnicutt missed a field goal that would have given Oklahoma the lead with less than four minutes to play.
"I feel for Michael," Oklahoma head coach Bob Stoops said. "He's been an excellent kicker for us and a great young man. We all love him. I feel that for him, because unfortunately, the kicker, that just kind of sticks out."
"The youngster that missed the field goal, he will go another hundred years without missing another field goal," said Kansas State head coach Bill Snyder. "So we were just lucky. That happens."
The contest went back-and-forth throughout, with the Wildcats (5-1) taking a 21-17 lead into halftime. Hunnicutt's first missed field goal, a 32-yard try that went wide left, came at the end of the first half. Kansas State come out of the locker room and added to their lead, a 27-yard field goal to make it 24-17.
Both squads traded touchdowns in the third quarter, giving Kansas State a 31-24 lead heading into the final period. Oklahoma (5-2) was able to drive the ball and score Trevor Knight touchdown pass to Durron Neal. However, Hunnicutt's extra point was blocked by Travis Britz.
The Sooners eventually got the ball back and reached the Kansas State 1-yard line. After not being able to put the ball in the end zone for the win, Hunnicutt's 19-yard chip shot missed and the Wildcats were able to run out the clock.
