Baker Mayfield On Iowa State's Flag Plant: 'It's Expected'

Iowa State plants flag at Oklahoma after win.

Iowa State scored one of the big upsets of the season, knocking off Oklahoma in Norman 38-31. After the game, ISU's Evrett Edwards planted Iowa's state flag at midfield.

Edwards's gesture was a clear play on Mayfield doing the same at Ohio Stadium, after the Sooners defeated Ohio State earlier in the year.

It seems like this might become a thing for teams beating Oklahoma now, although it is unclear if Ohio State is really going to feel much better about things after this result.

After the game, Mayfield said that he expected the flag planting following the loss.

As for the "Iowa State's his dad" comments, that already happened loud and clear on national television as Oklahoma turned the ball over on downs to hand the Cyclones the big win.

Oklahoma's season is far from over, but losing to Iowa State at home really clouds the Sooners' road to the College Football Playoff as of now.
