Big Plays Lead Oklahoma Past Cyclones, 52-16

It didn't take long for the Sooners to show their hot streak wasn't over. They scored touchdowns on their first two offensive plays and scored 21 in the first quarter. The first play was a flea flicker that resulted in a 75 yard touchdown pass from Baker Mayfield to Dimitri Flowers. Then DB Dakota Austin picked off a bad pass from the Cyclones. The following play was a 27 yard strike to Dede Westbrook that went for six points. Then Mayfield pulled off a 17 yard scamper that put the Sooners up 21-3 at the end of the first quarter.

Things started to get weird in the second quarter when K Austin Seibert missed a field goal and Oklahoma was held scoreless in the second quarter but still led the game.

The Sooners then controlled the game the rest of the way with a 74 yard passing touchdown to Sterling Shepard and a 57 yard touchdown run by Joe Mixon.

Mayfield finished with four total touchdowns and 342 passing yards. Samaje Perine rushed for 95 yards and Mixon rushed for 88 and they both scored scored one touchdown.

The Sooner defense was solid for most of the game and their offense torched the Cyclone defense all night. Oklahoma is now 8-1 on the season with a road trip against undefeated Baylor next Saturday. It could very well be the game featured on ESPN College Gameday next Saturday morning too. Iowa State falls to 3-6 on the season with their loss to the Sooners.
