Manhattan KS– Mark the day, September 22, 2012. This was a day K-State fans will remember for a long time. K-State marched into Norman, Ok. as 14 point underdogs, and walked out with a victory over the 6th ranked team in the country. Heres five things we learned from the K-States biggest regular season win since arguably the 1998 victory over Nebraska.
1. K-State Doesn’t Have To Return A Kick To Dominate Special Teams: The unsung hero of this game was a punter wearing number 9. Ryan Doerr of K-State was only on the field 5. But every single time Doerr punted the ball, it landed inside the Oklahoma 20 yard line. The Sooners were forced to start half of there possessions inside their own 20, 3 of those inside there own 15. While the only time K-State started inside there own 10 was after Blake Bells fumble at the K-State one. Field position had a huge impact on this game, and a lot of it came courtesy of Ryan Doerr.

Lady GaGa’s recently shaved head was tattooed during a live launch of her new fragrance ‘Fame’. The bottom portion of her scalp was shaved in honor of photographer Terry Richardson’s late mother, and the tattoo she received in front of the crowd symbolizes the Renaissance era as a tribute to her Italian heritage.
Amy Winehouse’s ashes have finally been put to rest. Winehouse, who died in July 2011, was buried by about 70 of her closest friends and family members in London this past week.
Artist Katy Perry was given her very own Barbie Doll! The Katy Perry inspired doll was complete with the blue hair, sparkly microphone and even her trademark long eyelashes inspired from her ‘California Gurls’ video.

Manhattan, KS– On Saturday night at 6:50 p.m. the 15th ranked Kansas State Wildcats will play its biggest game since, well the last time they played the Oklahoma Sooners. In a game that has been circled on purple calendars for about a year, K-State will look to do what has never been done before in the Bob Stoops era, win as a ranked team in Norman Oklahoma.
In an almost cliche fashion, the key to winning this game, for both teams, lies in the trenches. Both teams have been left with little returning experience on the offensive line. Oklahoma has lost 2 starters on the offensive line, (Ben Habern to retirement, and Tyler Evans to injury), while graduating another. Forcing left guard Gabe Ikard to switch to center, and right tackle Daryl Williams to switch to left tackle. What appeared to be a strength going into the season, has now become a severe question mark.
