Cyclones Storm To Upset at Oklahoma

Making things even more hard for Iowa State was the fact that the Cyclones were without starting QB Jacob Park, who left the team to deal with an unspecified medical issue. A fourth-down pass from Sooners quarterback fell incomplete near midfield, sealing the outcome, which could damage the Big 12's chances of landing a team in the College Football Playoff.

Iowa State snapped Oklahoma's 17-game conference winning streak, dating to the 2015 season. After an Iowa State field goal, the Sooners drove to the Cyclones' five-yard line, but Mayfield and Trey Sermon fumbled an exchange, and Lanning fell on it. Iowa State needed only seven plays to go 94 yards and capitalize on the mistake, thanks to a 22-yard David Montgomery run, a 35-yard Allen Lazard catch and a 28-yard Marchie Murdock touchdown from Kempt. Iowa State got back in the game with 21 straight points to take the lead after falling behind 24-10. Former starting quarterback Joel Lanning now plays linebacker. The Sooners took a 4-0 record into Saturday's game. The defense that looked dominant in nonconference play has been leaky during Big 12 action.

"There's been a lot of adversity around Iowa State for a long time and a lot of cloud around it", Iowa State coach Matt Campbell said.
