Live Blog: Oklahoma vs Kansas State

No. 22 Oklahoma Sooners (4-3) host unranked Kansas State Wildcats (5-3) at 6:00 p.m. in a Halloween night matchup. The Sooners celebrate homecoming tonight, Oklahoma QB Landry Jones hopes to celebrate an OU win to kickoff the official beginning of the Jones-era. This past week QB Sam Bradford, 2008 Heisman Trophy winner and Oklahoma's leading all-time passer, underwent season-ending shoulder surgery and announced he'll fore-go his senior year and enter the 2010 NFL draft. Only one of Oklahoma's losses has been with Jones as starter at quarterback.

The Sooners are coming off a 35-13 victory against Big 12 North contender Kansas last weekend. The Oklahoma defense held Kansas the then-No. 2 offense in the nation 200 yards below their season average. Jones, threw for 251 yards and two touchdowns.

Last weekend, Kansas State coasted to a 20-6 victory over Colorado. The Wildcats' running back Daniel Thompson produced half of KSU's 284 total yards of offense, Thompson rushed for 145 yards and 18 yards receiving. With the win over Colorado, Kansas State became the Big 12 North leader.

With an Oklahoma win tonight, the Sooners are still in Big 12 south title contention if they win out. However, Sooners need Oklahoma State to defeat Texas tonight, and defeat is an understatement. The Cowboys must win big.

With all that said, feel free to join the live blog.
