OU will take result in Ames
The Sooners weren’t always good. They weren’t always smart. Iowa State played better than was expected, and much better than it did in a season-opening loss to Iowa.
But most teams take whatever win they can pull from Ames, and OU will take the 37-27 result. It will take the fact it made enough big plays. It will take the fact that when faced with its first tight game of this season, it never panicked. The Sooners never fell behind.
