Game ball goes to: OU wide receiver Sterling Shepard. One of the few bright spots on this night was Shepard, who finished with seven catches for 108 yards and a touchdown.
Play of the game: With 3:11 remaining, the Sooner crowd roaring and Kansas State quarterback Collin Klein in a precarious third-and-11 passing situation, he calmly found his wide receiver Tramaine Thompson for a 12-yard pickup and monster first down. Had the Sooners held, they would have had the ball back with a timeout and ample time to do something offensively.
It was over when: Klein dashed for five yards on third-and-3 moments after his critical third-and-11 completion. That allowed the Wildcats to kneel it out.
Surprise of the game: How shaky Sooner quarterback Landry Jones was. He fumbled on OU's own 1-yard line, which K-State picked up for a touchdown, tossed an interception and missed multiple open targets throughout the night.
The biggest thing we learned: The Sooners have some serious problems to fix if they are going to contend for a Big 12 Championship this year. Turnovers, lack of poise and the list goes on.
The biggest concern: Jones' inability to perform at a winning level in a high-profile matchup. This has seemed to be a reoccurring theme throughout his career, and it again reared its ugly head tonight.
Streak snapped: 12 straight victories in ranked vs. ranked matchups dating back to 1995.
