NCAA Football: Oklahoma at Iowa State Reese Strickland-USA TODAY Sports

#5 ranked Oklahoma took a trip to Jack Trice Stadium and won a hard fought, thrilling game.

Iowa State marched down the field on the first possession of the game, but it was stalled after a 4th and 1 stop.

Oklahoma took over and capped a 58 yard drive off with a field goal. After another stop for the Sooners, they scored the first touchdown of the game on a 75 yard pass to Marquise Brown.

Iowa State responded with a 34 yard field goal by Connor Assalley. After an Oklahoma fumble, Iowa State scored on a 51 yard touchdown, Hakeem Butler broke four tackles on the play.

Oklahoma came back with two touchdown passes by Kyler Murray to finish off the first half. The Sooners led 24-10 at the break.

Oklahoma received the second half kickoff and was stopped quickly. Iowa State responded with another touchdown to Hakeem Butler, in which he broke another tackle. Oklahoma responded with a 22 yard touchdown from Trey Sermon.

Trailing 31-17, the Cyclones had an 8 play, 68 yard drive finished with a 1 yard touchdown from Montgomery. After trading punts, Oklahoma kicked a field goal to put them up 10.

In a last chance situation, Iowa State got inside the 5 but the offense was stopped, once again. After settling for a field goal, Oklahoma had a draining, 7:40 minute long possession that resulted in a field goal. On the final possession for Iowa State, they got into Oklahoma territory and turned it over.

Oklahoma won 37-27. Both offenses played really well, but Oklahoma’s was just a bit better. Murray had 348 yards passing on 21/29. Noland had 360 yards on 25/36. Hakeem Butler was the top performer for both teams with two touchdowns and 174 yards.

Up next for Iowa State is Akron.
