Matt Campbell earns first statement win as Iowa State head football coach

08 October 2017

To make matters worse, they would have to go this one without starting quarterback Jacob Park, who took a leave of absence from the team recently to deal with unspecified medical issues. "We are committed to helping him cope, supporting him on all levels and helping him prepare to get back on the playing field with his teammates as soon as possible".

Per ESPN Stats and Info, the win was Iowa State's first in program history over an AP Top Three team on the road after going 0-17 in such games. But he tossed three interceptions in a loss last week to Texas, and also appeared to engage in an animated discussion with Iowa State coach Matt Campbell on the sideline.

Through four games, Park has led the Cyclones to a 2-2 (0-1 Big 12) record, throwing for 1,181 yards and nine touchdowns. To say Campbell's chances of pulling off a win in this one were slim would be one of the biggest understatements of the season.

The quarterback position has been unstable for the Cyclones since Austen Arnaud graduated in 2010.

What's included? A Crunch Taco, Nacho Cheese Doritos Locos Taco, Cool Ranch Doritos Locos Taco and Fiery Doritos Locos Taco. There is even a website dedicated to this special day, saying that Americans ate over 4.5 billion tacos in 2016.

Park's backups include redshirt freshman Zeb Noland and redshirt senior Kyle Kempt.

The Sooners had beaten the Cyclones 18-straight times (their longest winning streak against any foe), but streaks were made to be broken and that's what happened on Saturday. Lanning is listed as a quarterback or linebacker on Iowa State's current roster.

Kempt hit Marchie Murdock with a 28-yard touchdown pass, then found Allen Lazard for a two-point conversion and a tie score at the 2:07 mark of the third.
