2017 Countdown To Kickoff | 93 Days!

In 2000, the Oklahoma Sooners found themselves on the road against the No. 2 Kansas State Wildcats. Quickly finding themselves trailing by a score of 7-3, Bob Stoops and the entire fan base hoped for a spark to ignite the offense. On the ensuing play, J.T. Thatcher provided the jump start the team needed by returning the kickoff 93 yards.

The return set up a short touchdown run for Seth Littrell and the Sooners secured a 10-3 lead. From that point on, the Sooners refused to let off the gas as Josh Heupel put together one of the more impressive performances of his career. Slinging the ball around and riding the momentum of the return, OU built a 31-14 halftime edge over a tough KSU team.

Sure, the Wildcats came roaring back in the second half making a push for the victory. However, the effort fell short as OU stole a victory on the road by a final of 41-31. The loss snapped a 25-game home win streak for Bill Snyder and K-State.
