Oklahoma lost their second straight game, this time at Iowa State. While losing outright in this game as touchdown favorites wasn’t as bad as losing last week to Kansas State when they were favored by about four touchdowns, there’s a good chance it could push the Sooners out of the top 25.
Until an interception with about a minute remaining, albeit where the receiver might have been interfered with, Spencer Rattler played pretty well at quarterback for Oklahoma. He finished 25-36 for 300 yards with two touchdown passes.
But he needed to be better to overcome what was a porous Oklahoma defense. Iowa State had over 400 yards of total offense; Brock Purdy, who gets overshadowed by Trevor Lawrence and Justin Fields but may well be a first round pick in his own right, averaged 10.6 yards per attempt.
The question of who wins the Big 12 has gotten very interesting with this Oklahoma loss, and Texas’s earlier.
