Iowa State And Oklahoma Prepare For Prime Time Contest

Oklahoma has played well with its back to the wall in winning five straight Big-12 titles and that is where the Sooners stand heading into Saturday night’s game at Iowa State. After squandering a big lead in a loss to Kansas State the Sooners will look to avoid an 0-2 start to conference play.

That’s ISU coach Matt Campbell who says winning close games is a trait of outstanding programs.

Redshirt freshman Spencer Rattler is the latest in a long line of outstanding quarterbacks at Oklahoma. Rattler has eight touchdown passes in his first two games.

Rattler had three interceptions in the loss to K-State but Campbell says the Sooners still have an explosive offense.

Oklahoma coach Lincoln Riley does not think the loss to Kansas State ended the Sooners’ or the Big-12’s hope of getting a team into the college football playoff.

Riley’s concerned about a pattern of not being able to finish games. The Sooners led K-State 28-7 midway through the third quarter before the Wildcats rallied for a 38-35 win.

Riley says the Sooners need to get better at finishing games.

Riley says it is a focus this week in practice.
