Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

Oklahoma quarterback Trevor Knight was off to a solid start in Saturday afternoon against #14 Kansas State. The Sooner fans worst nightmare unfolded before their eyes as Knight took a shot to the back while diving at the end of a running play. Before that point, Knight was 4-for-4 before the injury.

Back up quarterback Cody Thomas finished the drive for the Sooners which ended on a Samaje Perine touchdown run. Knight came back in on the next drive.

Oklahoma fullback Aaron Ripkowski was also ejected on the same play for a targeting call on a block of Wildcats linebacker Ryan Mueller.

The Sooners and Wildcats are one of two Big 12 games today that feature top 15 teams against each other.
