Iowa State shocks No. 3 Ok­la­homa.

Lan­ning makes plays on of­fense and de­fense in win for Iowa State

Richmond Times-Dispatch Weekend - - SPORTS -

NOR­MAN, Okla. — This Iowa State team is dif­fer­ent.

Kyle Kempt passed for 343 yards and three touch­downs, in­clud­ing a 25- yarder to Allen Lazard that put the Cy­clones ahead with 2: 19 left, and Joel Lan­ning made plays on of­fense and de­fense to lead Iowa State to a stun­ning 38- 31 vic­tory over No. 3 Ok­la­homa on Satur­day.

The loss snapped Ok­la­homa’s na­tion- lead­ing 14- game FBS win­ning streak and the Soon­ers’ 18- game run against the Cy­clones that dated to 1990. It was just Iowa State’s sec­ond vic­tory over Ok­la­homa since 1961, and the Cy­clones ( 3- 2, 1- 1 Big 12) did it with­out their start­ing quar­ter­back.

“There’s been a lot of ad­ver­sity at Iowa State for a long time, and there’s been a cloud around us,” Cy­clones coach Matt Camp­bell said. “I think our kids said, ‘ I’m sick of it, and we’re go­ing to keep grind­ing, keep swing­ing and get­ting bet­ter one day at a time.’ So at the end of it, here we are.”

Kempt, a se­nior who had thrown just two passes in his ca­reer be­fore Satur­day, played be­cause reg­u­lar starter Ja­cob Park went on leave for undis­closed per­sonal med­i­cal rea­sons late this week. The Cy­clones re­mained con­fi­dent, de­spite hav­ing lost 20 straight against ranked op­po­nents. Iowa State’s last win over a top- 25 team came against TCU in 2012. It was Iowa State’s first road win over a top- five team.

Lan­ning, who switched from quar­ter­back to line­backer in the off­sea­son, played both po­si­tions Satur­day. Ac­cord­ing to the Des Moines Reg­is­ter, he’s the first Iowa State player since 1971 to get sig­nif­i­cant ac­tion both ways in a game. He ran for 35 yards, passed for 25 and had eight tack­les, a sack and a fum­ble re­cov­ery. He played 78 snaps.

No. 8 TCU31, No. 23West Vir­ginia 24: Kenny Hill avoided a de­fender in the back­field and lunged for­ward through two more for a 3- yard touch­down run with 2: 53 left, and the Horned Frogs re­mained the Big 12’ s only un­de­feated team with a vic­tory over the vis­it­ing Moun­taineers.

Hill also threw a 45- yard touch­down pass and was on the re­ceiv­ing end of a 48- yard score for TCU ( 5- 0, 2- 0). His win­ning TD run came only five plays af­ter an ap­par­ent in­ter­cep­tion was re­versed on a re­play re­view.

Will Grier threw for 366 yards and three TDs for West Vir­ginia ( 3- 2, 1- 1), in­clud­ing two long catch- and- run scores in a span of about 2 ½ min­utes late in the third quar­ter. It was tied at 24 af­ter Grier hooked up with David Sills V on a 64- yard scor­ing play and then Ka’Raun White for a 76- yarder.

No. 4 Penn State 31, North­west­ern 7: Trace McSor­ley threw for 245 yards and a touch­down, and Saquon Barkley ran for two scores in the sec­ond half in the vis­it­ing Nit­tany Lions’ rout of the Wild­cats ( 2- 3, 0- 2 Big Ten).

McSor­ley, an Ash­burn na­tive, com­pleted 25 of 34 passes. He threw a 10- yard touch­down pass to backup quar­ter­back Tommy Stevens in the sec­ond quar­ter and added a 5- yard scor­ing run in the fourth.

Shaka Toney had two sacks, and the Nit­tany Lions ( 6- 0, 3- 0) came away with an easy vic­tory.

No. 5 Ge­or­gia 45, Van­der­bilt 14: Nick Chubb ran for two touch­downs and 138 yards, and the vis­it­ing Bull­dogs routed the Com­modores de­spite miss­ing three play­ers on their st­ingy de­fense.

Ge­or­gia ( 6- 0, 3- 0 SEC) is off to its best start since 2005 when the Bull­dogs won their first seven games and long­est win­ning streak since reach­ing the SEC cham­pi­onship in 2012. The Bull­dogs also avenged a 17- 16 loss to Van­der­bilt last year by beat­ing the Com­modores for the 20th time in the past 23 games in this series.

Ge­or­gia ran through and over Van­der­bilt ( 3- 3, 0- 3), pil­ing up 423 yards.

No. 10OhioS­tate62, Mary­land 14: J. T. Bar­rett threw for three touch­downs and ran for an­other in the first half, and the Buck­eyes had their most dom­i­nant de­fen­sive ef­fort in nearly 60 years, rout­ing the vis­it­ing Ter­rap­ins.

Ohio State ( 5- 1, 3- 0 Big Ten) held Mary­land ( 3- 2, 1- 1) to 66 to­tal yards — its fewest yards al­lowed since yield­ing 60 against In­di­ana in 1960.

Bar­rett, a fifth- year se­nior and holder of most of the school’s pass­ing records, was 20 for 31 for 261 yards be­fore tak­ing a seat near end of the third quar­ter. Bar­rett threw scor­ing passes to Bin­ji­men Vic­tor, Austin Mack and Terry McLau­rin.

No. 12Auburn 44, Mis­sis­sippi 23: Ker­ryon John­son rushed for a ca­reer- high 204 yards and three touch­downs, and the Tigers ( 5- 0, 3- 0 SEC) con­tin­ued a re­cent tear with their third straight lop­sided win over a league team.

John­son, who didn’t play in the fourth quar­ter, has 11 touch­down runs dur­ing that hot streak af­ter miss­ing two games with a right ham­string in­jury.

Auburn’s Jar­rett Stid­ham com­pleted 14 of 21 passes for 235 yards and two touch­downs.

The vis­it­ing Rebels ( 2- 3, 0- 2) en­dured their sec­ond straight blowout in the state a week af­ter los­ing 66- 3 to No. 1 Alabama.

No. 14 South­ern Cal­i­for­nia 38, Ore­gon State 10: Sam Darnold threw for 328 yards and three touch­downs, Ron­ald Jones II rushed for one touch­down, and the Tro­jans de­feated the vis­it­ing Beavers ( 1- 5, 0- 3 Pac- 12).

Wide re­ceiver Tyler Vaughns and tight end Josh Falo each re- corded their first ca­reer touch­down re­cep­tions from Darnold as the Tro­jans ( 5- 1, 3- 1 Pac- 12) were work­man­like in bounc­ing back from last week’s 30- 27 loss at No. 11 Wash­ing­ton State. Jones, who had 79 yards rush­ing and two re­cep­tions for 17 yards, scored a touch­down from scrim­mage in his 12th straight game.

LSU17, No. 21 Florida 16:

Danny Etling threw a short touch­down pass in the sec­ond half, and the vis­it­ing Tigers re­bounded from a stun­ning home loss with a vic­tory against the Ga­tors.

The Tigers ( 4- 2, 1- 1 SEC) moved the ball well early with jet sweeps and then pounded it be­tween the tack­les late, do­ing just enough to up­end the Ga­tors ( 3- 2, 3- 1).

The dif­fer­ence was Florida’s usu­ally stout kick­ing game. Eddy Pineiro missed the first ex­tra point of his ca­reer in the third quar­ter and never got a chance to atone for it. He had made 45 in a row be­fore that.

LSU looked noth­ing like it did the pre­vi­ous week against Troy, a 24- 21 loss that was the pro­gram’s first at home against a non­con­fer­ence op­po­nent since 2000.

Navy 48, Air Force 45: Zach Abey threw a 16- yard touch­down pass to Tyler Car­mona with 15 sec­onds left, and the un­beaten Mid­ship­men downed the vis­it­ing Fal­cons af­ter blow­ing a 21- point lead in the sec­ond half.

De­spite al­low­ing five touch­downs af­ter half­time, Navy

( 5- 0) took a huge step to­ward re­gain­ing pos­ses­sion of the Com­man­der- In- Chief’s Tro­phy, awarded an­nu­ally to the team with the most wins in games be­tween Army, Navy and Air Force.

In this one, af­ter Arion Worth­man threw a 51- yard touch­down pass to Mar­cus Bennett with 1: 53 re­main­ing to put the Fal­cons up 45- 41, Abey took the Mid­ship­men 75 yards in 11 plays for the go- ahead score.

Army 49, Rice 12: Kell Walker ran for 127 yards and three touch­downs, and Ah­mad Brad­shaw added 115 yards rush­ing and two more scores as the vis­it­ing Black Knights forced turnovers on four straight pos­ses­sions in the first half to build a big lead early in a win over the Owls.

It was the first road win this sea­son for Army ( 4- 2), which ex­tended Rice’s skid to four games.

The Owls ( 1- 5) turned the ball over six times in all — five fum­bles and an in­ter­cep­tion.


Iowa Statewide re­ceiver Allen Lazard (5) catches the game-win­ning touch­down with Ok­la­homa cor­ner­back Jor­dan Thomas de­fend­ing in the fourth quar­ter. The Cy­clones up­set the Soon­ers 38-31.

TCU run­ning back Sewo Olonilua (33) dives over the goal line to score a touch­down again­stWest Vir­ginia in the sec­ond half.
