After a first half ending field goal, the Cyclones looked to be close, but not close enough in another game against the Oklahoma Sooners, being down 24-13 at the break.
The Sooners got on the board early with a quick pass from Baker Mayfield to Trey Sermon. The Cyclones would punt soon after setting up another Sooner touchdown. We finally got on the board with 1:20 left in the first quarter thanks to a Garrett Owens field goal.
After a sort of questionable “piling on” penalty by Oklahoma, Iowa State set up shop on the Sooner 2 where David Montgomery pounded it in for our first touchdown. The Sooners would go up 24-10 in the second half before both teams exchanged punts and a long catch by Hakeem “The Dream” Butler set up a Garrett Owens field goal.
For the first drive of the second half, Iowa State was driving only to see Kempt get sacked for a loss of seven, however, we still capitalized with a 42 yard field goal by Owens.
The turning point in this game was a critical fumble by the Sooners on Iowa State’s five that (obviously) would be recovered by Joel Lanning. On the ensuing ISU drive, ISU goes 94 yards in 3 minutes and 28 seconds on seven plays.
The Sooners would have a decent drive only to have a 44 yard field goal go wide right.
With 13:43 left in the fourth, Iowa State starts another scoring drive, this time a 57 yard touchdown pass to Trever Ryen puts Iowa State in the lead 31-24.

The Sooners respond with a 5-and-a-half minute drive that leads to a Dimitri Flowers 1 yard plunge into the goal line.
Iowa State takes control and with 2:19 left in the game, Kempt throws a 25 yard pass to Lazard to seal the game, 38-31.
