NORMAN — Bob Stoops and Barry Switzer are linked again. For now, at least.

Stoops matched Switzer’s record for most coaching victories at Oklahoma when the 22nd-ranked Sooners cruised to a 48-10 victory over Iowa State on Saturday.

Trevor Knight led the way as Stoops recorded win No. 157 with Oklahoma (8-2, 5-2 Big 12), which closed the game with 45 unanswered points over the final three quarters. The backup quarterback, which replaced the injured Blake Bell in the second quarter, was 8-of-14 passing for 61 yards and rushed for 123 yards and one touchdown.

Iowa State (1-9, 0-7) held Oklahoma scoreless in the first quarter and led 10-3 before Jalen Saunders returned a punt 91 yards for a touchdown right before halftime. Damien Williams added 10 carries for 128 yards and two touchdowns for the Sooners.

Knight provided an instant spark after replacing Bell early in the second. Bell was 2-of-5 passing for 10 yards before he appeared to get injured on a fumble with the Sooners trailing 7-0.

Stoops stuck with Bell as his starting quarterback after Oklahoma managed only 237 yards of offense in a 41-12 loss at then-No. 5 Baylor. And while the Sooners got off to another slow start, they outscored the Cyclones 38-0 in the second half.
