The Oklahoma Sooners rolled the Iowa State Cyclones 50-20 on Saturday night in Norman. The win moves Oklahoma to 5-0 on the season, while Iowa State fell to 2-3 with the loss.
But in the final couple of minutes of the game, Iowa State head coach Matt Campbell elected to use his timeouts, despite trailing by 30 points. Needless to say, it appeared to rile up some OU fans on social media, and at the game.
Here’s some of the reaction from Norman.
Oklahoma fans yell “hot seat” at Matt Campbell as he goes up the tunnel.— Ryan Chapman (@_RyanChapman) October 1, 2023
Campbell points back and yells something back at the fans.
At least he didn’t take any timeouts back to Ames with him I guess?
