NORMAN — Oklahoma routed Iowa State 48-10 Saturday on Owen Field, improving to 8-2 overall and 5-2 in Big 12 Conference play.
Here's a look at what players and coaches had to say after the game:
Senior center Gabe Ikard, on sharing the Don Key Award with Trey Millard:
“Obviously it's a big deal, but to be able to share it with Trey is very special. He's a close friend of mine, was very deserving of it as well. … I'm very honored that I've been able to represent this program the way it should be represented, the way it deserves to be represented.”
Sophomore linebacker Frank Shannon, on OHP Trooper Brian Orr tackling a fan who ran onto the field:
“That was crazy. I was like ‘What?' Corey was like, ‘He broke his back.' … His speed, his takeoff was real slow. I didn't think he was going to get there fast enough. When he got there, it was a good form tackle and put him into the ground.
“It was the best tackle of the day. The whole crowd went live.”
Offensive coordinator Josh Heupel, on the offense carrying Saturday's performance into next week:
“I don't care what level — high school, college, NFL — you see guys going through peaks and valleys week to week. Hopefully, we're mature enough to understand we have to move on to the next one. It hasn't been the case all year long.”
Iowa State coach Paul Rhoads, on Bob Stoops passing Barry Switzer's career wins record:
“Congratulations to Bob Stoops. I said as much to him, but Bud Wilkinson and Barry Switzer, wow. To pass one and tie the other and certainly will move past Barry as the season comes to a close … Big congratulations to Bob.”
Defensive coordinator Mike Stoops, on the first half:
“They didn't do anything really we hadn't prepared for, but we just weren't very sharp. I didn't think we tackled very well. We just didn't play with a lot of force. The whole first half was really uncomfortable.”
