This was the first victory Kansas State had at Oklahoma since 1970 and was game two of a five game winning streak against the Sooners. I found some highlights of the game on YouTube.
I was at this game in person. A couple of buddies of mine and I took a charter bus ride to and from the game. It was a great party on the bus the whole way down and back. I remember being quite impressed with Oklahoma’s game day atmosphere. The whole campus was one big party. This was before K-State had much of a tailgating scene, so it was quite impressive to witness.
I remember sitting in the stands in the 4th quarter and most of the OU fans had left the stadium but not one K-State fan had left. One of the food vendors was walking around selling “K-State sodas” and lamented “This is sad! We used to do beat you guys like this!”
This game was big because it was another stepping stone showing that K-State had passed Oklahoma in the Big 8 pecking order and only had Colorado and Nebraska to pass to get to the top.
