Baker Mayfield tells Kansas fans to 'stick to basketball,' throws arm squeeze during Jayhawks bench

No. 13 Oklahoma State’s Big 12 championship hopes were already put on life support Saturday, interjection to No. 12 TCU’s 27-3 win during Texas Tech, joined with a believe a Frogs tighten a unchanging deteriorate during home opposite Baylor on Friday, and No. 4 Oklahoma’s approaching win during Kansas. But a Cowboys went forward and separated themselves by descending in a 42-13 hole for that they could not stand out, dropping a 45-40 diversion to Kansas State in Stillwater.

Kansas State non-stop a diversion by relocating 71 yards in 10 plays — each one of them runs, many of them by second-time starting quarterback Skylar Thompson, who traversed a final 40 yards himself, including a 5-yard score.

After a span of punts, Oklahoma State tied a diversion on a 2-play, 70-yard drive: a 32-yard run by Justice Hill and a 38-yard strike from Mason Rudolph to James Washington (eight catches for 159 yards). 

Matt Ammendola gave Oklahoma State a lead with a 32-yard margin goal, though Thompson shoved Kansas State right behind in front with a 47-yard play-action explosve to Byron Pringle, putting Kansas State adult 14-10 with 13:32 left in a initial half. Oklahoma State threatened to re-claim a lead, though a Cowboys could not modify a 1st-and-goal during a K-State 7-yard line, forcing a 27-yard Ammendola margin goal.

Kansas State immediately capitalized on a event to seize control of a diversion when Pringle struck again, this time holding a indirect kickoff 89 yards behind for a touchdown.

A bad method for Oklahoma State became even worse when Rudolph’s low pass to Washington was dismissed and intercepted by Duke Shelley at a K-State 18. The Cowboys invulnerability forced a three-and-out, though a subsequent Oklahoma State expostulate finished in another Rudolph overpower and another interception, which Kendall Adams grabbed during a K-State 19 and returned 19 yards to a 38.

Kansas State capitalized on a mistake, relocating 62 yards in 5 plays, a final 39 on an Alex Barnes run down a right sideline to put a Wildcats adult 28-13 with 1:30 left in a initial half.

The surge continued to open a second half. Thompson strike Pringle on another bomb, this time 46 yards, on a Wildcats’ initial reason of a second half, and that tie bending adult again to lift a lead to 42-13 mid by a third entertain — this time from 60 yards out. Pringle finished a day with 4 catches for a career-best 166 yards and 3 touchdowns.

Pringle’s third touchdown noted a third true diversion and a fourth altogether Oklahoma State has authorised 42 points or more.

Oklahoma State forced a approach behind into a diversion by a 21-3 run, scoring on a 2-yard run by Hill, an 8-yard pass from Rudolph (32-of-53 for 425 yards with 4 sum touchdowns and dual interceptions) to Washington and a 2-yard Rudolph screw with 4:55 to play.

Oklahoma State attempted an onside flog after a final touchdown, though it was recovered by — who else? — Pringle.

After regulating a second timeout, Oklahoma State’s invulnerability strike a trifecta: it managed to pouch Thompson, force a fail in that it recovered, and hit Thompson out of a diversion with what seemed to be a right leg injury. He finished a diversion attack 10-of-13 passes for 204 yards with 3 touchdowns while rushing 17 times for a game-high 93 yards and a touchdown. Barnes combined 85 yards on 21 carries, and as a group Kansa State out-rushed Oklahoma State 219-85.

The Cowboys zipped down a margin to register Rudolph’s fourth touchdown of a game, a 14-yard bullet to Dillon Stoner to lift a Pokes within 45-40 with 4:02 remaining. Rudolph’s 2-point pass was intercepted.

Needing a initial down to win a game, Kansas State ran 3 true approach snaps to Barnes, who managed usually dual yards. Oklahoma State got a round behind during a possess 46 with 2:12 remaining, meaningful a touchdown would win a game. Instead, they could not benefit a yard. Rudolph dismissed deficient on 4 uninterrupted passes, thereby dooming a Cowboys’ quip efforts and promulgation Kansas State (6-5, 4-4 Big 12) into their initial play diversion given 2015.

Oklahoma State (8-3, 5-3 Big 12) will finish a deteriorate and Rudolph’s record-breaking career opposite Kansas subsequent Saturday in Stillwater, meaningful a Pokes are personification only to reason on to their top-25 ranking and play positioning, though not most more.
