Kansas State upsets No. 6 Oklahoma behind Adrian Martinez's 5 touchdowns

Quarterback Adrian Martinez ran for 148 yards and four touchdowns, and the Wildcats stunned No. 6 Oklahoma 41-34 on Saturday night.

Kansas State beat Oklahoma in 2012, 2014, 2019 and 2020, but an upset seemed unlikely this time -- the Wildcats were coming off a home loss to Tulane the previous week.

"I just know that our kids believe that they're a good football team, and they have to go out there and prove it," Kansas State coach Chris Klieman said. "And tonight, they proved it."

Martinez also passed for 234 yards and a score. He was Nebraska's quarterback last year when the Cornhuskers lost to Oklahoma 23-16 in the same stadium.

Martinez, a senior, said it was his best college performance.

"Absolutely, beating a team like this, on a team like this, it's a special feeling, and one I've never had in my career," he said.

It was first-year Oklahoma coach Brent Venables' first loss as a head coach, and it came against his alma mater.
