Oklahoma Football Didn't Land At Kansas State Until 12:45 A.M., After 8 Hour Flight Delay

If the Oklahoma Sooners come out sluggish today at Kansas State, they have a decent excuse. The team was set to leave Oklahoma for Manhattan at around 4 p.m. on Friday. Instead, they wound up landing just before 1 a.m.

The Sooners' original plane had mechanical issues, as did three separate backup planes that they attempted to take for the relatively short flight.

We're just glad to hear everyone made it safely. Luckily, OU doesn't kick off until 3:30 p.m., so they had a bit of extra time to rest up.
