The Sooners opened up the scoring within the first five minutes of the game when Blake Bell managed a four-yard touchdown run in the first quarter. That touchdown came just two plays after Jamell Fleming intercepted an Iowa pass and returned it to the Iowa 10 yard line.
Iowa then reeled off a 14-play, 65-yard drive that took them deep into the red zone and to the Oklahoma 6 yard line. They opted to go for the conversion on 4th-and-1, rather than settle for the field goal. That play resulted in a loss of three yards and a turnover on downs.
The Haweyes were able to hold the Sooners at their own 6, however, as the Oklahoma squad went three-and-out. Luckily for Oklahoma, Tress Way manages a 67-yard punt out of the end zone to keep the Hawkeyes at bay.
