Kansas State football fans have to be scratching their heads after the loss to No. 19 Oklahoma, but there were some good things to take out of the game.

Oklahoma Sooners
Kentucky Wildcats

Kansas State football (3-3, 1-2 Big 12) had a two-game winning streak on the road against Oklahoma (4-2, 3-0 Big 12), and the feeling was that the Wildcats’ defense could help pull off a third straight road win in the series.

The feeling was incredibly wrong.

The Sooners, led by quarterback Baker Mayfield, scored touchdowns on their first three drives of the game to take a 21-7 lead, and they never looked back. It was a long afternoon to watch if you were a Kansas State fan.

Oklahoma racked up 510 total yards, and Mayfield threw four touchdown passes against a Kansas State secondary who looked timid and lost for most of the day.

But despite the lopsided score and the abundance of yardage given up by the once-dominant K-State defense, it wasn’t all bad. Yes, there are some positive things to pull from this game.

You can’t make an omelette without breaking some eggs, so we’ll just look at this as another step towards a delicious western breakfast treat.
