For the second straight season, Kansas State has pulled off a stunning upset against Oklahoma.

Even more shocking is the improbable fashion in which the Wildcats came back to win this game.

The Sooner closed as consensus 27.5-point favorites across the market, with a handful of sportsbooks even at -28.

Oklahoma jumped out to a 14-0 lead, and stretched it out to 28-7 with 6:45 left in the third quarter.

In fact, after Kansas State managed to close the gap to 28-14, OU marched right back down the field to make the score 35-14 with just 2:46 remaining in the third quarter.

At this point, The Action Network’s mobile app pegged the Sooners with a 99% chance to win this game straight up — and that’s when Oklahoma’s wheels started to loosen.

From that point, the Wildcats scored 24 unanswered points, including a 50-yard field goal with 4:32 left in the game to take their first lead of the game at 38-35.

Kansas State’s defense held strong through the end of the game, preserving an incredible and extremely improbable come-from-behind victory against Oklahoma.

Under bettors were also dealt a blow, considering the probability of the final score landing under the closing sat at a bullish 88% with the score 21-7 in the third quarter.

Surprisingly, the 38-35 final score ultimately sent the game flying over the closing total of 62.

Fifty-eight percent of bettors laid the points with Oklahoma, while 87% cashed on the over.
