Kempt, Lanning help Iowa State shock Oklahoma in Norman


Noland has thrown one pass this season, and Kempt hasn't thrown any. It's hard to imagine the team that went on the road to beat Ohio State would fall at home to Iowa State, but that's the beauty of college football.

But the Cyclones, a 31-point underdog, played toe-to-toe with Oklahoma and picked up their first victory over the Sooners since 1990.

Kickoff for the Iowa State-Oklahoma game is set for 11 a.m. CT. Iowa State had lost 18 straight in the series. Iowa State is by far the worst loss of that group, but the blueprint is there for the Sooners to rebound and win the Big 12. Park still ranks 15th in the NCAA in passing yards (295.2 yards per game) and has thrown nine touchdown passes, thanks in great part to senior All-American wide receiver Allen Lazard who has 24 receptions for 241 yards and three TDs despite constant double-teaming.

The Big 12 will play championship game this season for the first time since 2010. The league restored the game to give its champion a better chance of reaching the College Football Playoff.

Now, TCU, which is playing host to West Virginia on Saturday afternoon, moves into that position.

Iowa State quarterback Jacob Park will not play against No. 3 Oklahoma on Saturday and is taking a leave from the team for undisclosed medical reasons.

Cyclones head coach Matt Campbell said in a statement Friday night that quarterback Jacob Park has taken a leave of absence as he deals with "personal medical concerns", according to Tommy Birch of The Des Moines Register.
