Oklahoma (8-2, 5-2 Big 12) scored 45 unanswered points on the strength of a 38-point second half to pound Iowa State (1-9, 0-7 Big 12) Saturday afternoon in Norman. After being tied 10-10 at halftime, Oklahoma scored a 48-10 victory over the Cyclones.

Damien Williams scored two touchdowns in the second half and rushed for a game-high 128 yards. Oklahoma’s dual-threat quarterback Trevor Knight completed eight of 14 pass attempts for 61 yards and rushed for 123 yards and a touchdown as well. Oklahoma rolled up over 400 yards of offense in the second half after struggling for much of the first half against an upset-minded Iowa State team. The Sooners were also pretty disciplined in the game. while they were called for six penalties, Oklahoma avoided turning the football over and the defense put the clamps down on Iowa State after halftime by forcing four punts and a fumble. Meanwhile the offense picked up points on each second half possession and were kept out of the end zone just once (held to a field goal).

The win improves Oklahoma to a record of 8-2 with two games to play. The Sooners are out of the Big 12 championship race with losses to Baylor and Texas already — Baylor and Texas are undefeated in Big 12 play so far, making it nearly impossible for Oklahoma to pass them — but Oklahoma can still put themselves in contention for a good bowl invite.

Oklahoma’s final two games will be played on the road. Next up is Kansas State. Oklahoma then gets a week off before traveling to Stillwater to take on Oklahoma State. Bedlam could have a trip to the Cotton Bowl on the line.
