Iowa State's Park takes leave for 'personal medical concerns'

Iowa State third-string quarterback Kyle Kempt threw for 343 yards and three touchdowns as the Cyclones stunned third-ranked and previously undefeated Oklahoma 38-31 on Saturday afternoon in Norman, Okla.

The move mimicked what Mayfield himself did at Ohio Stadium earlier this season when he planted an Oklahoma flag in the middle of the block "O" at midfield.

But the Cyclones, a 31-point underdog, played toe-to-toe with Oklahoma and picked up their first victory over the Sooners since 1990.

Entering Saturday's game, he was second in the Big 12 with 46 tackles. He struggled in his last outing when Iowa State fell to Texas at home as he threw three interceptions and completed just 50 percent of his passes.

The Big 12 will play championship game this season for the first time since 2010. 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. The first- and second-place teams will meet on December 2 in Arlington, Tex.

Iowa State will be without starting quarterback Jacob Park when the Cyclones face No. 3 Oklahoma on Saturday morning.

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

"Jacob is a great young man dealing with some personal medical concerns", Iowa State coach Matt Campbell said in a prepared statement.
