The Cyclones went on the road last year and shocked the No. 3 Sooners 38-31. While the loss didn’t keep Oklahoma out of the College Football Playoff, it did mark the arrival of Iowa State to the Big 12 Championship Game race — at least for a while. Oklahoma is once again a big favorite over Iowa State this time around, but do the Cyclones have the same offensive firepower to keep up? Here’s what you need to know about picking Saturday’s early kick in Ames. Viewing information Date: Saturday, Sept. 15 | Time: Noon ET Location: Jack Trice Stadium — Ames, Iowa TV: ABC | Live stream: WatchESPN remember watching the game like it was yesterday and being in shock for several minutes (and hours) after the game was over. It legitimately took some time to process the fact that a team led by Baker Mayfield could lose to a team like Iowa State at home. Sure, Oklahoma lost some head-scratchers during the Bob Stoops era, but the 2017 loss to Iowa State was up there with many of those. The 2017 loss gave new life to the “fire Mike Stoops” mob that had briefly been disbanded following the Ohio State win, and also illuminated some minor weaknesses in the Sooner offense in 2017. Luckily for the Sooners, they’ve fixed a lot of the defensive issues they had experienced last season (and the season before that). Through the first two games of the 2018 season, OU fans have justification for at least some optimism that the defense can be a strength of this team On the Iowa State side, the problem lies on the offensive side of the ball. In their first game of the season against Iowa, the Cyclones were held to but three points. Some of that can certainly be attributed to a good Iowa defense, but the offense struggled even when the Iowa defense gave them openings. Further complicating things is the fact that Iowa State starting QB Kyle Kempt may not play on Saturday after suffering a knee injury against Iowa. Kempt is currently day-to-day, and the starter may not be announced until closer to game time. With the loss of stud RB Rodney Anderson for the season, the Sooners have to find some answers on the ground. Although the loss of Anderson hurts, Oklahoma has four capable backs at their disposal. As Lincoln Riley hinted at during his press conference on Monday, he will take a committee/hot-hand approach similar to what we saw at this time last year. This means that Riley will likely give each back a chance and rotate guys in and out based on how they are playing. The idea is for the cream to rise to the top. While my favorite back personally is Trey Sermon because of his powerful and patient downhill running style, this backfield is wide open with Anderson out. Through the first two games, the back that has really impressed me is Marcelius Sutton. The shorter back has shown great burst, vision, balance, wiggle, and the ability to bounce off tackles. Sutton runs low to the ground and seems to burst out of the whole on every run.
