Iowa St.'s Lanning plays both ways; Cyclones stun Oklahoma

A stunner in Norman, Okla., has shifted the Big 12 power structure. The junior, who was on the preseason Maxwell Award "watch list" as one of the players vying for honors as the nation's top collegiate player, started the first four games of the season for the Cyclones.

Oklahoma had collected one of the most impressive victories in college football this season, winning at Ohio State 31-16 on September 9.

Injuries aren't an excuse for losing this game, but the Sooners had more than their fair share in this game. I know how important the football team is to Jacob and how important Jacob is to the football team.

Lanning became the first Iowa State player since Dave McCurry in 1971 to get significant action playing both ways in a game, according to the Des Moines Register.
