Oklahoma looks to hand Iowa State another blowout loss

Oct 20, 2007 - 10:38 AM No. 4 Oklahoma (6-1) at Iowa State (1-6) 12:30 pm EDT

AMES, Iowa (Ticker) -- Last week did not work out so well for Iowa State at home. Oklahoma would love to make life difficult for Cyclones coach Gene Chizik for a second straight week.

The fourth-ranked Sooners look to follow Texas' lead when they visit the Cyclones on Saturday for a Big 12 Conference matchup.

Last Saturday, Iowa State (1-6, 0-3 Big 12 North) was crushed by Texas here, 56-3.

The Cyclones, who are playing their first season under former Longhorns assistant Chizik, gave up four touchdowns through the air and three on the ground while mustering just 228 total yards.

While Iowa State is in last place in its division, Oklahoma (6-1, 2-1 Big 12 South) is in a four-way tie for first in its with Texas Tech, Texas A&M and Oklahoma State.

The Sooners followed up a 28-21 win over Texas in their annual "Red River Rivalry" game with a 41-31 triumph over then-No. 11 Missouri in Norman last weekend.

Chris Brown rushed for three touchdowns for Oklahoma, including a go-ahead one-yard score with 12:26 to play.

The Sooners, who have won 10 in a row in the series, beat Iowa State in Norman last year, 34-9. In the last meeting here, in 2003, Oklahoma manhandled the Cyclones, 53-7.
