Oklahoma vs. Iowa State final score: Sooners defeat Cyclones, 35-20

Matthew Holst

No. 12 Oklahoma bounced back from its loss to Notre Dame last weekend by going on the road and defeating Iowa State on Saturday afternoon.

The No. 12 Oklahoma Sooners survived a third-quarter scare from the Iowa State Cyclones and rolled to a 35-20 victory on Saturday afternoon in Ames, Iowa.

Iowa State running back Jarvis West's 19-yard touchdown run with less than six minutes left in the third quarter got the Cyclones to within a score at 21-13. However, the Sooners responded with an eight-play, 68-yard drive which was capped off by an 18-yard scoring run from Brennan Clay. The Sooners created more breathing room early in the fourth quarter when quarterback Landry Jones connected with wide receiver Kenny Stills for a 31-yard touchdown strike to make it a 35-13 game.

Iowa State tried to make it interesting late, getting a 2-yard TD run from Shontrelle Johnson at the 6:32 mark. The Cyclones moved the ball into Oklahoma territory on their next possession, but quarterback Steele Jantz threw an interception, putting an end to the comeback attempt.

Box Score Hero: Jones worked around a couple of interceptions to complete 32 of 45 passes for 405 yards and four touchdowns. Clay, who ran 21 times for 130 yards and a score, deserves a look here as well.

But Did They Cover? The Sooners entered the game as 13-point favorites, so they covered. The two teams exceeded the over/under, which was set at 51 prior to the game.
