Live Blog Updates: Oklahoma State Bounces Back with 29-21 Win over Kansas State

Live updates from BPS.



[Devin Wilber/PFB]


End of Game: Oklahoma State 29, Kansas State 21

The Cowboys break their two-game losing streak and avoid dropping below .500 for the first time since 2014. But most importantly, OSU gets its first Big 12 win.

Alan Bowman goes 19-for-35 for 235 yards. Ollie Gordon rushes it 21 times for 136 yards and a score. Four receivers hauled in multiple catches.

Nickolas Martin went nuts, racking up 17 tackles (10 solo), 2.5 tackles for loss, a sack and a huge interception late. Cameron Epps showed out in his second start with five tackles, two pass breakups and two interceptions, including a pick-six.

Fourth Quarter

The Cowboys’ defense gets the stop with a big play by Cameron Epps and then a swat by Collin Oliver to put OSU into a victory formation.

But Nick Martin picks off Will Howard (his third pick) to take over with 3:24 left, up eight. Huge play from Martin who already had a career-high 16 tackles and a sack.

Oof. OSU goes with a trick play on fourth-and-1 with a direct snap to tight end Josiah Johnson but he’s called short and that call stands on replay. Wildcats take over down eight with three timeouts and 5:17 to go.

If it aint working in the air, Will Howard can take it to the ground. The Cats’ drive appeared to be stalling but the veteran QB rattled off runs of 29 and six to find the end zone. An unsuccessful two-point attempt makes it an eight-point game.

The Pokes’ drive again stalls out in the red zone again and Alex Hale makes his fifth field goal. It keeps the door open for the Wildcats, still within two scores, with 11 and a half to go.

Third Quarter

The Cowboys march down the field on the first drive of the second half but come up on third down when Bowman’s deep pass bounces off of Rashad Owens’ mitts. Coulda been a PI, but they play on. And so does Alex Hale. He nails a 53-yarder to tie his career long and extend the Pokes’ lead.

After marching down to within the Cowboys’ 10, the Wildcats coughed it up on a wide-right snap on fourth down. Will Howard was able to fall on it, but the Pokes will take over on downs at their own 32.

First Quarter

Kansas State wins the toss and takes the ball.

The Wildcats promptly go three-and-out to start the game.

The Cowboys put together a beautiful 15-play, 72-yard drive to paydirt. Ollie Gordon scores the touchdown from two yards out and hands the ball to a pom squad member in the east end zone.

Cameron Epps picks off Will Howard’s third pass attempt of the day. Cowboys have the ball back. It’s just OSU’s second interception of the season.

The Cowboys go three-and-out after narrowly missing Brennan Presley on a second-down deep shot. K-State gets the ball back with 5:22 to play in the first quarter.

The Cowboys’ defense forces another three-and-out with a big tackle from Nickolas Martin and nice coverage from Cameron Epps.

OSU drives 47 yards down the field and sets up a 43-yard Alex Hale field goal.

End of Q1: Oklahoma State 10, Kansas State 0

Kansas State finished the first quarter with just 16 yards of total offense to OSU’s 129. K-State starts the second quarter on its 8-yard line.

Will Howard takes it 70 yards on the ground to get the Wildcats to OSU’s 1-yard line. From there he throws it to Ben Sinnott to get K-State on the board. Game on.

Oklahoma State drives all the way to the K-State 2-yard line (thanks in large part to a 45-yard catch and run from Jaden Bray). But the Wildcats stuff Gordon three times then block an Alex Hale field-goal attempt.

The OSU defense forces another punt. Nickolas Martin comes up with a big third-down sack.

The Cowboys again push into K-State territory but can’t get into the end zone. Hale hits from 34 yards out. The drive featured a beautifully thrown ball to Owens for a gain of 45.

Cameron Epps again. He picks off a third-down pass and returns this one to the house. It’s his second INT of his career and his second INT of the night.

Half: Oklahoma State 20, Kansas State 7

The Cowboys are back after a week off hoping to snap a two-game losing streak, but to do so they’ll have to slow down the Big 12’s second-best offense. But the Wildcats, too, are rested coming off their own bye week.

The last time these teams met, the Cowboys suffered a demoralizing 48-0 loss which started one of the worst stretches of the Mike Gundy era. Now, with the threat of their first sub-.500 record since 2014, the Cowboys need to find a way to rebound. No pressure.
