No that's no mistake. Former Oklahoma and current Texas A&M quarterback Trevor Knight in attendance to watch his former team and twin brother take on Kansas State.

Oklahoma got the ball the start the game against Kansas State with no Dede Westbrook in the starting lineup. However, Westbrook missed just two snaps before he made his debut catching a slant from Baker Mayfield.

That drive resulted in a 25 yard touchdown from Baker Mayfield to Samaje Perine. The Sooners had an early 7-0 lead.

On the next OU drive, Samaje Perine would limp off and leave the game after getting rolled up on. That didn't slow down the OU offense which padded their lead. Baker Mayfield found Joe Mixon on an eight yard touchdown off of a shovel pass. Mixon made an incredible move leaping over a defender en route to pay dirt. The touchdown pass was the 50th of Baker Mayfield's career. The Sooners led 14-0.

The Wildcats would answer on their following drive. Jesse Ertz stormed into the end zone on a two yard touchdown run. It was his 4th rushing touchdown of the season. In prototypical Kansas State fashion, the drive ate up over eight minutes.

The ensuing drive some Lincoln Riley fire out some flare. Joe Mixon hit Dede Westbrook on a 26 yard touchdown strike on a halfback pass. Oklahoma led 21-7 over the Wildcats.

Kansas State would cut into the lead by adding a field goal on their next drive. OU still had the advantage 21-10. That drive proved to be costly for Kansas State. QB Jesse Ertz had to leave with an injury. Joe Hubener replaced him. Hubener threw two interceptions to the Sooners last season en route to a 55-0 beating in Manhattan.

Austin Seibert responded with a 34 yard field goal on the Sooners next possession. OU extended their lead to two touchdowns at 24-10.

Ertz would return for the Wildcats to end the half. Oklahoma went to the locker room with a 24-10 advantage.

K-State got the ball to start the second half, but after one throw, Jesse Ertz left the game again as a result of an injury suffered in the first half. Joe Hubener returned, but the Wildcats went three and out.

It took most of the third quarter, but someone finally got on the board. Baker Mayfield connected with Dede Westbrook for an eight yard touchdown. Westbrook's second of the game. The Sooners led 31-10.

Kansas State didn't go quietly. Backup QB Joe Hubener hit Dominique Heath on a 54 yard touchdown which made it a two score game. It was a career long reception for Heath. Sooners held the advantage 31-17 with 12:40 to play.

Kansas State punted the ball back to the Sooners with under seven to play. First play off of that, Mayfield threw his fourth touchdown of the game, this one to Dede Westbrook on an 88 yard strike. OU had a 38-17 lead.

Oklahoma would hang on to win 38-17. It's the first win for the Sooners over Kansas State at home since 2009. It also ended a streak of the road team winning the last five meetings between the two schools.

Baker Mayfield was magnificent. 25 of 31, 346 yards, 4 touchdowns and an interception. Dede Westbrook continued his hot play, 9 receptions, 184 yards 3 touchdowns. Westbrook becomes the first Sooners to catch seven touchdowns in a three game span since Ryan Broyles. The Sooners improve to 4-2 (3-0) and travel to Texas Tech next weekend.
