The Oklahoma Sooners scored a 55-0 shutout victory over Kansas State on October 17th of last season. It was the Sooners' first game after suffering a devastating loss to Texas, in Dallas, and it came after a week of media and fan speculation regarding the team's mental and physical toughness.

The Sooners built a 35-0 lead in the first half and then coasted through the third and fourth quarters while also adding twenty more points onto their lead. Quarterback Baker Mayfield threw five touchdown passes for Oklahoma, with Sterling Shepard being on the receiving end for two of them.

On the ground Oklahoma averaged 4.5 yards per carry with Joe Mixon adding a score in the fourth quarter to cap the game. Defensively the Sooners held the Wildcats just seven first downs and 110 total yards of offense. Oklahoma forced three turnovers on the day, with Zack Sanchez running an interception back 38 yards to pay dirt.
