No. 19 Oklahoma had struggled through the back-half of their schedule, dropping two of its final three games heading into Friday night's Insight Bowl matchup with Iowa.
While it wasn't the prettiest of performances, the Sooners were able to bounce back with a big 31-14 win. For the majority of the game, Oklahoma was in control; the Sooners had built a 21-0 lead before the Hawkeyes scored its first touchdown early in the fourth quarter.
The star of the game wasn't OU's running attack, or QB Landry Jones - rather backup QB Blake Bell. The "Bell-Dozer" ran for 51 yards and three touchdowns to lead the team.
Jones completed 16 of 25 for 161 yards, a touchdown, and an interception. The touchdown pass was the first for Jones since his star WR Ryan Broyles went down with a torn ACL on November 5.
The Sooners forced two Iowa turnovers, both in the form of interceptions. CB Jamell Flemming grabbed the first, and LB Tom Wort the second to ice the game.
Now the question surrounding the Oklahoma program will be whether or not Landry Jones will head to the NFL or return to Norman for his senior season, and how the Sooners' coaching staff will reload the roster heading into next season.
