Week 6 is not even halfway over, and we already have a massive shakeup in college football. Iowa State defeated Oklahoma 38-31 on the road as the Sooners College Football Playoff chances took a hit. According to OddsShark, Oklahoma was favored by 31 points heading into the matchup.
What makes the win even more remarkable is the Cyclones defeated Heisman Trophy candidate Baker Mayfield with a two-quarterback system. Joel Lanning was taking snaps as both quarterback and linebacker in a move reminiscent of 1950’s football.
Walk-on Kyle Kempt played the majority of the game as quarterback. Kempt finished the game with 343 passing yards and three touchdowns including the game-winning touchdown pass.
Did we mention Iowa State trolled Baker Mayfield by planting the Cyclones flag in the middle of the Oklahoma logo? Yes, college football is great.
