"It's not a sprint".
It was Iowa State's second victory over Oklahoma since 1961. Florida (3-2) got the mark in a 17-16 SEC loss to visiting LSU (4-2) ... The Nov. 4 Bedlam meeting in Stillwater will be an elimination game, and Oklahoma will probably need to win its final seven games, plus the Big 12 Championship Game, to earn a final four spot.
Defensive coordinator Mike Stoops: "We didn't play assignment-sound football". "We have 2015 to show for that".
Throughout the game, Iowa State used a balanced attack, using the horizontal passing game to give their playmakers space to work.
Oklahoma was coming off a bye week. Sam Ehlinger got the QB call for Texas against Kansas State in a late Big 12 contest with starter Shane Buechele (ankle) banged up ... Starting quarterback Jacob Park went on leave for undisclosed medical reasons. Or, and I'm afraid this is it, fans were simply too shocked to know what to do with themselves.
Walk-on Kyle Kempt played the majority of the game as quarterback.
- UAB. The Blazers (3-2, 1-1 Conference USA) bagged a 23-22 victory over Louisiana Tech, their first league victory since the program resumed play after a two-year hiatus.
Kempt, who also connected with Trever Ryen and Marchie Murdock for scores, went 18-of-24 on completed passes and then made way for Joel Lanning, who made plays on both offense and defense in the road win. They'll play two nine-inning games tomorrow back-to-back at the Cyclone Sports Complex starting at 1 p.m.
GEORGIA 45, VANDERBILT 14: Nick Chubb ran for two touchdowns and 138 yards, and fifth-ranked Georgia routed Vanderbilt despite missing three players from the Bulldogs' stingy defence. He played 78 snaps. "And yet we wanted to get Allen in the best matchup we could".
That recovery was the game's turning point.
Indeed, the home side held first- and second-quarter leads of 14-3 and 24-13. But a fumbled handoff recovered by Lanning stopped that drive. Thomas, trying to rebound from his poor outing against Baylor, failed to wrestle a jump ball away from Lazard on a third-and-14 during the series.
Oklahoma also saw its 18-game winning streak against the Cyclones ended. Thomas exemplified the issues that the Sooners defense is suffering.
Most of these losses happened later in the season than Oklahoma's loss to Iowa State, and many of them were to unranked opponents as well. Absolutely, it is. I feel like we've got the makeup in there - I told them in there, this will be the most important game of the year for us as far as how we respond to it.
"It's just how it's going right now", Stoops said.
"We'll look back at the end of the year and regardless of what we do, we'll be able to point and this moment and say 'that's the moment where we turned it around'".
One streak that did remain in tact, however, was Mayfield throwing at least two touchdowns in every game he has started as the OU quarterback.
