Murray and Sooners look good in Iowa State win 37-27

Oklahoma used a high octane offense and  played their best game of the young season against a very game Iowa State Cyclones for a 37-27 win in Ames.
Sooner quarterback Kyler Murray passed for 348 yards (3 TD passes) and ran for another 77 as Iowa State had difficulty stopping OU all day long.   


The Cyclones were able to get big plays in the passing game as Zeb Nolan used his 6’6 wide out Hakeem Butler over the Sooners smaller defensive backs, especially Parnell Motlety.  Stlll, Motley intercepted Nolan on the ‘Clones last drive to snuff out the wind of the home team.  All in all, OU’s defense was effective against the run. All said, OU’s defense played a hard and tough game.


“Iowa State is a good team……They are a tough out,” commented Sooner head Coach Lincoln Riley after the tussle.


The win for Oklahoma gives them a 3-0 start and the first win of the conference season. ISU is now 0-2 and their first loss in the Big Twelve.
