Oklahoma's home game against Iowa State on Saturday, Nov. 16, will kick off at 11 a.m. and be broadcast on Fox Sports 1, the Big 12 Conference announced Friday afternoon.

The Sooners are coming off a 41-12 loss at Baylor, and Iowa State (1-7, 0-5 Big 12) hosts TCU at 11 a.m. Saturday.

Oklahoma has won 14 straight games against Iowa State.

The game will also mark the Sooners' annual Senior Day, with 17 football seniors being honored during a pregame ceremony that will include presentation of the Don Key Award, which is given each year to a football senior who exemplifies excellence on the field and in the classroom.

Sophomore wide receiver Sterling Shepard suffered a mild concussion late in the first quarter of Thursday's loss at Baylor, according to a source close to Shepard.

Shepard, who has caught 33 passes for 391 yards and five touchdowns this season, was knocked out of the game after sustaining a violent hit from Baylor's K.J. Morton.

Morton was called for targeting and ejected from the game, but reinstated after officials reviewed the play. Shepard has had concussion issues in the past, suffering a pair of them as a sophomore at Heritage Hall.
