class="WireP">Williams scored on a 69-yard touchdown run in the opening minute of the third quarter, lifting Oklahoma to its first lead of the day. The two-play, 75-yard drive showed the Sooners are capable of scoring in a hurry.

Brennan Clay added a 63-yard touchdown later in the third to extend Oklahoma’s lead to 27-10. The two long touchdown runs all but dashed Iowa State’s hopes of snapping a 15-game losing streak to Oklahoma.

Oklahoma’s offensive woes carried over into Saturday, and things didn’t begin to get better until Knight took over.

The Sooners managed just one first down and 25 yards of total offense in the first quarter. It marked the fourth straight game that Oklahoma failed to score in the first.

Saunders scored Oklahoma’s only touchdown of the first half when he fielded a punt at the 9, eluded a few defenders, and raced to the end zone with 1:09 remaining in the second quarter. The Cyclones, losers of seven in a row, jumped out to a 7-0 lead when Sam Richardson ran untouched on a 4-yard touchdown run with 14:18 left in the second quarter.
