Best photos OU’s history with Iowa State Cyclones




The Oklahoma Sooners hold an incredible 78-7-2 record against the Iowa State Cyclones in series history. What’s amazing is that two of those wins have come since 2017

Prior to Norman’s upset in 2017, the Oklahoma Sooners had lost just one game to Iowa State between 1962 and 2016. It’s one win in 54 years for Iowa State against the Sooners. So it’s only recently that the Cyclones can make this a competitive contest. Even in the dark days before Bob Stoops arrived, the Oklahoma Sooners won every game from 1991 until Stoops’ tenure with the Sooners.

Can Brent Venables avoid a loss to the Cyclones in his first season at the helm?

Iowa State has one of the best defenses in the country, which could pose some problems for Oklahoma. But if the Sooners’ offense plays like it did against the Kansas Jayhawks, they’ll score enough points to win, even if they don’t reach the 30-point threshold.

But before we get to Saturday, let’s take a look back at the game’s history through some of the best photos from around the turn of the century.
