Iowa State shocks No. 3 Oklahoma in Norman

Iowa State shocks No. 3 Oklahoma in Norman

A stunner in Norman, Okla., has shifted the Big 12 power structure. A fourth-down pass from Sooners quarterback fell incomplete near midfield, sealing the outcome, which could damage the Big 12's chances of landing a team in the College Football Playoff.

Park remains on the team but will be inactive beginning with Saturday's game at No. 3 Oklahoma. The Sooners and quarterback Baker Mayfield, one of the top candidates for the Heisman Trophy, have made no secret that their goal is to win a national championship so they can ill afford to get caught looking ahead to next week's Red River Rivalry showdown with Texas.

The Big 12 will play championship game this season for the first time since 2010.

OU pushed the lead back to double digits on its next series, as Mayfield rushed in from 13 yards with 2:43 left before halftime.

The Sooners scored just seven second-half points.

Iowa State quarterback Kyle Kempt, a Massillon native, threw for 343 yards and three touchdowns, including the game victor to Allen Lazard with 2:19 remaining.

"Jacob is a great young man dealing with some personal medical concerns", Iowa State coach Matt Campbell said in a prepared statement.

Iowa State quarterback Jacob Park is taking a leave from the football team to work through personal health issues the team announced Friday night. Kempt appeared in one game for the Cyclones last season and completed both of his passes.
