Iowa State hosts Oklahoma Saturday Night at Jack Trice in what is one of the marquee games around the nation. The Sooners are coming off a loss to Big -12 foe Kansas State in a game where they led by as many as 28. The Cyclones are coming off a road win at TCU, the first win in a Big-12 opener in Matt Campbell’s tenure. Oklahoma’s offense is led by QB Spencer Rattler, here’s Matt Campbell’s thoughts on Rattler.
Rattler has thrown for 8 TD’s in the first two games this season. However, he did throw 3 INT’s in the loss to Kansas State. Campbell says he’s concerned about OU’s explosiveness on offense.
Oklahoma Coach Lincoln Riley is concerned with his team’s ability to finish games. Sooners were up 28-7 in the 2nd half vs. K-State and had a late collapse falling 38-35. Riley says his team has to get better at closing games.
