Oklahoma Upset By 31-Point Underdog Iowa State

Iowa State defeated Oklahoma 38-31 on the road as the Sooners' College Football Playoff chances took a hit.

"We were still in the game the whole time", Andrews said.

Iowa State quarterback Jacob Park is taking a leave from the football team to work through some personal health issues. After so many disappointing ends, including one last month against Iowa, the Cyclones got their victory - and it came in the most unlikely fashion. The next two opponents are Kansas and Texas Tech, which might be must-win games to get a bowl game, as then they have to play TCU, West Virginia, and Oklahoma State in successive weeks. Lanning passed for 25 yards, rushed 35 yards, made eight tackles, one sack and had a key fumble recovery to top it all off. He played 78 snaps.

"It was fun", Lanning said. "Coming into an atmosphere like this, you can't ask for anything better, especially playing both ways". "We've been in a lot of close games this year".

CLEMSON - Clemson (6-0, 4-0 ACC) won its ninth consecutive game against the Demon Deacons (4-2, 1-2).

Iowa State's run defense has been a surprising bright spot for the Cyclones this season.

"They wanted to spread us out", Stoops said. "Some of the old scars kind of repeated themselves today".

"Our execution as a whole is not good enough". That falls on us as coaches. Similar to Baylor. We started out fast offensively, had a couple stops, had some momentum. The bad news is this loss is much worse.

After Oklahoma got that win against Ohio State, quarterback Baker Mayfield planted an OU flag at the middle of Ohio State's field.

"It's expected", Mayfield said. It's not like it's not been apparent. Dinich says there's no way Oklahoma wins the rest of its games with that going on. Maybe the best 1-3 college football team in recent memory.

In the second quarter, it was still 24-10 in favor of the Sooners.

Kempt, a former walk-on who had not attempted an in-game pass for the Cyclones before Saturday, actually did most of the damage for Iowa State on offense. After the Oklahoma loss, the Horned Frogs were the Big 12's lone undefeated team and entered the weekend ranked eighth in the Associated Press poll. Everything goes right. Iowa State needs to protect Jacob Park and get David Montgomery plenty of touches. The Sooners and Iowa State provided some early drama and the first really big upset of the season.

Baker Mayfield broke Sam Bradford's Big 12 record by throwing for at least two touchdowns in his 18th straight game. Riley didn't have an update on their injuries.
