Park will not play in Saturday's game against Oklahoma

Posted October 08, 2017

Early on in his Big 12 tenure, Campbell needed to find a statement win somewhere, and there was no place better he could have found it than the hostile environment that is Norman, Oklahoma. A fourth-down pass from Sooners quarterback fell incomplete near midfield, sealing the outcome, which could damage the Big 12's chances of landing a team in the College Football Playoff.

Iowa State senior quarterback Kyle Kempt threw for 343 yards and three touchdowns in the contest, including the go-ahead scoring strike to wide receiver Allen Lazard from 25 yards out to put the Cyclones on top 38-31 with 2:19 remaining. In five seasons leading Toledo, Campbell was 35-15 and that sort of success led to him being hired as the head coach of the Iowa State Cyclones prior to the 2016 season.

Iowa State has not named a starter for Saturday's game. The first- and second-place teams will meet on December 2 in Arlington, Tex.

This is the seventh straight season Oklahoma has dropped a game they were a double-digit favorite.

A shocker before what is arguably Iowa State's biggest game of the year came when The Des Moines Register reported that QB Jacob Park will be taking a leave of absence from the team. Kempt appeared in one game for the Cyclones last season and completed both of his passes.
