Big 12 roundup: Kempt, Iowa State stun No. 3 Oklahoma

Wisconsin 38, Nebraska 17: Freshman Johnathan Taylor rushed for a season-high 249 yards and two touchdowns to lead a punishing ground game that helped No. 9 Wisconsin (5-0, 2-0) wear down Nebraska (3-3, 2-1). "Two games in a row we get to that point where we can separate a little bit and we obviously did not do that", Riley said.

The Cyclones, however, had other plans.

- Tulane. The first game of the day - a 10 a.m. local kickoff in response to Hurricane Nate's anticipated arrival - produced a score worth mentioning.

Coach Matt Campbell gave one of the biggest fist pumps throughout the entire season after that failed fourth down conversion and the Iowa State bench erupted into a thunderous cheer. "We are just not making enough plays, and if you do that in this league, you're going to come out on the short end of the stick". Plus, starting quarterback Jacob Park didn't travel with the team and it was announced Friday he has taken a leave of absence to deal with unspecified "personal health issues".

Behind walk-on QB Kyle Kempt Iowa State shocked the Sooners 38-31.

"They weren't asking me to do anything insane, to throw it down the field", said Lanning, who was 2 of 3 passing. They just had to hold the lead. Brian Lewerke was uninspiring at quarterback, going 11-of-22 for 94 yards and a touchdown.

On a crisp autumn Saturday, there was Evrett Edwards, wedging the Iowa state flag into the grass victoriously at Owen Field. "They had two screens for touchdowns (of 28 and 57 yards)".

ISU receiver Allen Lazard caught a jump ball over OU cornerback Jordan Thomas for a 25-yard TD and the Cyclones had their game victor if only their defense could hold.

There has to be a human being somewhere in the world that can regularly hit makeable field goals for the Minnesota Vikings . Lions QB Matthew Stafford , on whether he thinks he'll be hurting from the six sacks he took: "A little bit".

It's only the first week of October, but here are four storylines that will take shape down the line.

For the second game in a row, the Oklahoma defense was unable to contain the opponent's passing game. It was just Iowa State's second victory over Oklahoma since 1961. On a 4th-and-4, Baker Mayfield scrambled desperately to keep the Sooners season alive. It isn't toast, even it turned in an entirely uninspiring performance in the second half against the Cyclones.
