(AP) -- The upset of the night in college football occurred in Norman where the 15th-ranked Kansas State Wildcats felled sixth-ranked Oklahoma 24-19. That avenged a lopsided 58-17 loss to the Sooners last year. K-State is 4-0 after dropping the Sooners to 2-1.
John Hubert ran for 130 yards and a touchdown and Jarell Childs scooped up a fumble and returned it for a score.
Collin Klein picked up 228 yards of total offense and ran for the go-ahead touchdown early in the fourth quarter in a solid performance that outshined an error-filled night by Sooners quarterback Landry Jones.
Jones threw for 298 yards and a late touchdown but also fumbled and threw an interception that put Kansas State in position to go ahead.
