OSU Responds After Controversial Loss

OSU Responds After Controversial Loss

With 12:55 to play in the fourth quarter, lightning struck close enough to Boone Pickens Stadium to send the Oklahoma State vs. Pittsburgh into a lightning delay for about an hour and 40 minutes. Tied at 38, Oklahoma State came out with the ball but the offense sputtered and couldn’t get anything going. The Cowboy defense, however, came out came out looking better than they had the whole game and stopped Pitt three straight times.

After punting three times, Mason Rudolph connected with Jhajuan Seales for a 86 yard gain. Rennie Childs followed it up with his fourth touchdown of the game and the winning touchdown to lead OSU to the win over the Panthers 45-38.

The Cowboys came out firing on offense scoring after the first play of the game on a 91 yard pass from Rudolph to James Washington. Pittsburgh followed with a touchdown less than two minutes later. Both teams would make field goals in the first quarter to make a 10-10 score to end the first.

The Cowboys controlled the second quarter scoring three times and having a two touchdown lead for most of the quarter until Pittsburgh scored with less than two minutes left to make it 31-24 at half.

Mason Rudolph set the OSU passing record with 540 yards and James Washington caught 296 of those yards. Rennie Childs also ran for 102 yards.
