Rhoads Remembers: 2011 vs. Oklahoma State
AMES, Iowa - Iowa State made history on Friday, Nov. 18, 2011. With its defense keeping the high-powered Oklahoma State offense out of synch all night and an offense churning out 568 yards of total offense, the Cyclones upset No. 2 OSU in an amazing come-from-behind 37-31 double overtime victory at Jack Trice Stadium.
A crowd of 52,027 watched as the Cyclones erased a 17-point second half deficit to record its biggest win in school history. The Cyclones were 0-56-2 all-time vs. teams ranked sixth or higher coming into the game. Iowa State trumped that stat, and became bowl-eligible for the second time in the three-year Paul Rhoads era.
Jeff Woody sealed the victory on a 4-yard touchdown dive after Ter'Ran Benton intercepted a Brandon Weeden pass on the first play of OSU's second overtime possession.
