But OU had other plans, as Schmit waltzed into the end zone after a clever fake gave him an open lane to the pylon. The TD gave OU a 10-3 lead in the second quarter.
There’s no explaining how Jalil Farooq got this free behind Iowa State’s defense, but there’s video evidence that it happened. Farooq reeled in a 41-yard dime from Dillon Gabriel to put Oklahoma ahead 20-6.
