NORMAN, Okla. (KWWL) -

In three and a half hours, Kyle Kempt went from an unknown to the Big 12's Offensive Player of the Week. Kempt earned the honor after leading Iowa State to an upset win at third ranked Oklahoma, one of the biggest victories in program history.

The redshirt senior earned the start due to Jacob Park's personal medical leave. Kempt, who had just two pass attempts in his college career, completed 18 of 24 passes for 343 yards and three touchdowns in the win.

The victory snapped a 20 game losing streak against top 25 teams and was the first for Iowa State on the road against a top five opponent.
