Game 4: Texas Tech 41, Oklahoma State 17
September 22 | Boone Pickens Stadium
Alan Bowman threw for 397 yards and two touchdowns
and Texas Tech ended a nine-game losing streak to Oklahoma
State with a 41-17 victory over the No. 15 Cowboys
on Saturday night.
The win is the third straight since a season-opening loss to
Mississippi for the Red Raiders (3-1, 1-0 Big 12), whose last victory
over Oklahoma State came in 2008.
Bowman completed 35 of 46 passes in his Big 12 debut, guiding
the nation’s top offense to 621 total yards. Demarcus Felton
added a pair of rushing touchdowns for Texas Tech and finished
with 121 yards rushing on 12 carries.
Nine Red Raiders caught passes in the win, with Ja’Deion High
leading the way with eight catches for 79 yards and Antoine Wesley
and Zach Austin finishing with seven catches apiece.
Justice Hill rushed 12 times for 111 yards and a touchdown
for the Cowboys (3-1, 0-1), the 10th straight game the junior has
scored. Tylan Wallace had seven catches for 123 yards.
After leading Oklahoma State to a win over Boise State a week
ago, Oklahoma State quarterback Taylor Cornelius struggled --
finishing 18-of-38 passing for 258 yards with a touchdown and
Oklahoma State entered the game sixth in the country in total
offense and having outscored its first three opponents by a total
of 157-51. The Cowboys never could quite get in sync against
Texas Tech. Game 5: Oklahoma State 48, Kansas 28
September 29 | Lawrence, Kan.
After last week’s 24-point loss to Texas Tech that knocked them
out of the top 25, Oklahoma State came to Kansas on Saturday
needing a big win. Almost right away, you could tell that
wouldn’t be a difficult goal.
Taylor Cornelius passed for 312 yards and four touchdowns, Justice
Hill ran for 189 yards and the Cowboys (4-1, 1-1 Big 12) cruised to a 48-
28 win over the Jayhawks (2-3, 0-2 Big 12).
Oklahoma State found the end zone on each of its first three possessions
and scored on their first four, setting the tone early.
Kansas’ defense was simply no match.
“They had a really good gameplan, and they executed it,” coach David
Beaty said. “That was the key.”
Cornelius got things going early, throwing to Tylan Wallace on a slant
route for the 11-yard touchdown before hitting Landon Wolf for a 42-
yard score on a deep ball the next drive.
Cornelius’ first incompletion didn’t come until the third drive, when
he overthrew a wide-open Braydon Johnson streaking down the field.
Kansas would not learn from that lucky break, though, as Tyron Johnson
got open on almost an identical route on the next play on his way to a
Hill was a steady counterweight to the passing game, averaging 6.1
yards per carry on 31 rushes. He scored in the third quarter, running in
from 10 yards out after a pair of big passes got the Cowboys in the red
Kansas turned to Carter Stanley for his first start under center all year,
benching Peyton Bender who had previously started all four games.
Stanley responded well, throwing for 247 yards on 24-of-32 passing and
