NORMAN, Okla. (AP) - Oklahoma's shot at a Big 12 Conference title and a Bowl Championship Series berth likely ended with a loss to Baylor last week, meaning a program with one of the nation's proudest traditions had to reassess its benchmarks for the rest of the season.
Senior center Gabe Ikard says the Sooners' main goal now is just to win. That's something they've done often against their foe Iowa State, which they'll play on Saturday.
No. 22 Oklahoma (7-2, 4-2 Big 12) is 70-5-2 all-time against the Cyclones. Iowa State coach Paul Rhodes says it's ''a series that is as lopsided as exists in the Iowa State record books.''
If the Sooners are to post the 35th 10-win season in program history, a win over Iowa State (1-8, 0-6) would seem to be a must, with road games at Kansas State and Oklahoma State remaining before a bowl game.
