A look back at how it all happened Saturday:
Oklahoma State 7, Texas 0. It took two drives for the Cowboys to heat up, but when they did, they showed why they’re the country’s No. 1 offense. Pinned at the 4 after a big Michael Dickson punt, OSU drove the length of the field in less than 3 minutes powered by six Mason Rudolph completions. Texas, meanwhile, mustered only 44 yards in the opening quarter to two Longhorns drives did get into OSU territory.
OSU: J.D. King 7-yard run (Matt Ammendola kick, 4:51)
Halftime — Texas 7, Oklahoma State 7. Texas received the benefit of the doubt on two key plays in the quarter. On Justice Hill’s fumble at the Texas 14, it was ruled that the running back’s knee did not hit the ground before the turnover. Two plays later, John Burt streaked down the sidelines for a 90-yard gain. Officials did not review if Burt stepped out of bounds, and Texas hustled to the line before Ehlinger hurried into the end zone on a short run.
Texas: Sam Ehlinger 2-yard run (Joshua Rowland kick, 13:59)
Texas 10, Oklahoma State 7. Texas was held to 59 yards in the quarter but did take its opening drive of the second half to OSU’s 4-yard line. Tom Herman has made clear how he hates 20-yard field goals but opted for one on fourth-and-goal from the 4. The Cowboys had only 15 offensive plays; one of them was a costly drop from Jalen McCleskey on what would’ve been a 46-yard touchdown.
Texas: Rowland 22-yard field goal (10:42)
End of regulation — Texas 10, Oklahoma State 10. The Longhorns missed out on a chance for an 81-yard touchdown when Ehlinger didn’t see Devin Duvernay breaking wide open on his side of the field. OSU had one big chunk play all day — a 66-yard pass to Marcell Ateman — and got to Texas’ 12, but missed a 29-yard field goal that would’ve made it 13-10. Neither team could mount a drive to take the lead in the final minutes.
OSU: Ammendola 19-yard field goal (12:31)
Final — Oklahoma State 13, Texas 10. Texas’ defense held, as Malik Jefferson stuffed Justice Hill for a 1-yard gain and Rudolph’s pass to Ateman inside the 5 fell incomplete. The Cowboys settled for a short field goal. Texas, thanks to a defensive pass interference call in the end zone, found itself in great position — first-and-10 at the 12, but on third-and-4 at the 6, Ehlinger’s high floater into the end zone was picked off by Ramon Richards to end the game.
