Well, this should make Ohio State fans happy.

After Oklahoma won at Ohio State earlier this season, Sooners quarterback Baker Mayfield planted an OU flag at midfield. Buckeyes fans were furious.

Guess what happened after Iowa State’s stunning 38-31 win at No. 3 Oklahoma on Saturday? Yep, an Iowa State player took a flag to midfield in Norman.

Iowa State with the flag plant we all wanted, and needed. Well done, Cyclones.

If ever an opposing team deserved to plant a flag at midfield, it’s this one. Bravo, Cyclones. Seriously, take a long slow bow.
