Sooners knock off Iowa State 35-20

Landry Jones threw for 405 yards and 4 touchdowns to lead 12th ranked Oklahoma past Iowa State 35-20.

"I thought Landry Jones was exceptional and had a huge day," said Oklahoma Coach Bob Stoops. "Brennan Clay had a huge day as well. I thought our offensive line was really was good and our protection was good. Defensively, I thought we were really good for most of the day. Give Iowa State credit. They worked it and got a couple of drives going, but I was pleased by the defense. There was very little that was easy for them to pick up or to pick up any big plays. We made them earn everything they got. They will earn their points because they're good."

Jones threw a pair of touchdown passes to Kenny Stills of 21 and 31 yards respectively. He hit Sterling Shepard from 20 yards out to start the scoring in the second quarter. Jones also hit Justin Brown from 20 yards out in the third quarter.

Brennan Clay had his best rushing day as a Sooner, running for 157 yards and a touchdown. Brennan was playing in relief of Damien Williams who tried to go but just wasn’t healthy enough to play productively.

"He was huge" said Stoops,." Give the line credit and those guys that were in front of him did a really nice job throughout the game. It wasn't always clean, but it isn't going to be because they have good players too. Brennan had a great day."

The Sooners racked up some 593 yards of offense while giving up 290 yards to the Cyclones. The majority of those yards coming late in the second half when Oklahoma had things well in hand.

The Sooners return to Owen Field next week when they host the Baylor Bears. Game time has not yet been announced.
