AMES, Iowa — Oklahoma State kicker Matt Ammendola rarely kicks on grass. That still wasn’t enough to end his kicking streak.

Ammendola made two field goals, making him a perfect 12 for 12 on the season. He’s also made 15 straight dating back to last season.

“Both of those balls were well struck,” OSU coach Mike Gundy said. 

Ammendola made a 49-yard field goal with 5:46 remaining in the third for a 24-20 lead. It was 4 yards shy of his career long, but still impressive.

It looked almost easy.

“That’s a good kick off grass,” Gundy said. “He did a nice job.”

Ammendola also made a 40-yard field goal.
