Game 11: Oklahoma State 45, #7 West Virginia 41
November 17 | Boone Pickens Stadium
Taylor Cornelius passed for 338 yards, ran for 106 more and
threw a touchdown to Tylan Wallace with 42 seconds remaining
to rally Oklahoma State past No. 7 West Virginia,
45-41, on Saturday.
West Virginia quarterback Will Grier led the Mountaineers
down to the Oklahoma State 14-yard line but couldn’t connect
with David Sills V on the final play. The loss all but ended West
Virginia’s shot at the College Football Playoff and put a dent in
Grier’s Heisman Trophy campaign.
Oklahoma State (6-5, 3-5) became bowl eligible with the victory.
West Virginia (8-2, 6-2, No. 9 CFP) faces Oklahoma next Friday
and still has a shot at reaching the Big 12 title game.
Grier’s 6-yard touchdown run on fourth down in the fourth
quarter gave West Virginia a 41-31 lead, but Cornelius’ 16-yard
touchdown run and a stop by Oklahoma State’s defense put the
Cowboys in position to win.
Oklahoma State has Top 25 wins over Boise State, Texas and
West Virginia this season. The Cowboys won despite leading
rusher Justice Hill sitting out with a rib injury.
Cornelius made up for two interceptions earlier in the game
with a strong fourth quarter.
