Ames, IA (SportsNetwork.com) – Trevor Knight accounted for six touchdowns,
three passing and three rushing, leading 19th-ranked Oklahoma to a 59-14 rout
of Iowa State on Saturday.
Knight completed 22-of-35 passes for 230 yards and ran for a career-high 146
yards on 16 carries for the Sooners (6-2, 3-2 Big 12), who weren’t caught
looking ahead to next week’s matchup with fellow Big 12 contender Baylor.
Oklahoma hadn’t played since the 31-30 home loss to Kansas State two weeks
ago, when Michael Hunnicutt missed a 19-yard field goal in the closing
minutes, but bounced back Saturday with a strong effort that featured a 21-0
Iowa State (2-6, 0-5) was the exact tonic for Oklahoma. The Sooners have now
won 16 straight in the series and are 72-5-2 all-time against the Cyclones.
Sam B. Richardson threw for 239 yards with a touchdown and added a score on
the ground for Iowa State, which hasn’t beaten Oklahoma since 1990 and last
beat the Sooners at home in 1960.
