Iowa State and Oklahoma will play under the lights at Jack Trice Stadium.

The Cyclones and Sooners have been scheduled as a 6:30 p.m. kick on ABC after being selected for the six-day window earlier in the week.

Iowa State enters the game coming off a 37-34 win over TCU on Saturday in Fort Worth. Meanwhile, the Sooners will be looking to bounce back after starting conference play with a 38-35 loss to Kansas State in a game that saw them lose a 21-point lead in Norman.

The last time these two teams matched up the Sooners won in a thrilling 42-41 game that was sealed with an interception on an Iowa State two-point conversion late in the fourth quarter after the Cyclones nearly erased a 21-point deficit entering the final period.
