Bradford just missing

AMES, Iowa - Oklahoma finally put a drive together. Sort of.

Third and 6, first play of second quarter, and Sam Bradford finds Chris Brown out of the backfield.

Three plays later, Bradford finds Jermaine Gresham for 18 yards.

Three plays later, Brown carries for 5 facing third and 3.

Three plays later, Bradford hits Adron Tennell in the chest, but Tennell was slipping as the ball arrived.

Next play, Bradford scrambles short facing fourth and 5.

The play before Tennell's drop? Bradford throws too tall to Malcolm Kelly. Catchable, but the high throw allowed the safety to make a play on the receiver. It was the second sure touchdown Bradford had just missed, the first a ball Juaquin Iglesias could have caught but refused to lay out for.

Now, Iowa State driving again.

It's been a crazy season and 24 minutes into things at Jack Trice Stadium it's only getting crazier.

Cyclones convert fourth down and they're just 21 yards away, still leading 7-0.
