I had some obligations that day so I had to miss the entire third quarter. I realized, upon my return, that I had missed nothing.
That was a case when ISU's JB-helmed offensive scheme was a bad matchup vs. OU's defense. The offensive line got pushed around and team speed was in OU's favor. That didn't make it any less frustrating to watch.
Mini-silver lining: It wasn't 31-3 midway through the 3rd. Baby steps.
Back-to-back plays that swung the game from competitive to unlikely — around 2:30 mark of first half, driving inside the 30, play breakdown forces JB to throw out of bounds, then then near-pick-6. Combination of play-calling, QB experience and OU's penetration.
