On Saturday afternoon, the Oklahoma Sooners faced off against the Kansas State Wildcats in what quickly became a shootout in the first half.

Oklahoma finally looked like it had a defense after stifling Texas in the Red River Showdown, but Alex Grinch's defense got torched in the first half.

Luckily for the Sooners, Oklahoma boasts one of the best offenses in college football. The Sooners used a late field goal to cut into the Wildcats' lead just before the half.

After 30 minutes of play, Kansas State holds a 24-23 lead over No. 5 Oklahoma.

Oklahoma entered the game as a 23.5-point favorite, but it's clear the Wildcats aren't going anywhere.

Jalen Hurts has been a one-man show for the Sooners so far this afternoon. He's accounted for 259 yards of offense in the first half.

Running backs Trey Sermon and Kennedy Brooks accounted for just six total yards in the first half.

Oklahoma needs to find some kind of answer for the Wildcats offense if they wants to stay undefeated this season. The team will have to do so without a key player on the defensive side of the ball. The Sooners lost safety Parnell Motley after he kicked a Kansas State player in the first half.
