7. Giving up over 500 rushing yards to Oklahoma

This year’s Iowa State defense was the worst under Paul Rhoads, giving up over 6,000 yards of total offense. 751 of those yards were against the Sooners. 751 YARDS!! To make it worse, over 500 yards were given up on the ground and THREE DIFFERENT Sooners had over 100 yards rushing — quarterback Trevor Knight (146 yards), Alex Ross (144 yards), and Samaje Perine (110 yards).

I don’t care if Iowa State had to play the Seahawks in Seattle and could only field just eight players on defense. Never should you ever give up over 500 rushing yards in one game. Ever.
