No 10 Oklahoma State beats Texas 13-10 in OT

The Commodores play football at Ole Miss on Saturday

Oklahoma State's Ramon Richards intercepted a pass from Texas quarterback Sam Ehlinger in the end zone in overtime to give the 10th-ranked Cowboys a 13-10 win at Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium on Saturday. Even if they failed to get the first down, they still a short field goal to likely send the game into a second overtime (granted, nothing is easy with #CollegeKickers).

CBS Sports had Oklahoma State as the consensus pick to win the Saturday morning showdown between the Cowboys and Longhorns. The Longhorns defense battled valiantly against arguably the top offense in college football for four quarters, and held Oklahoma State to a field goal in the first overtime to set up a potential game-winning drive.

In regulation, the Cowboys ran the ball 50 times and threw it 36.

Texas took the second-half kickoff and drove 71 yards in 13 plays but had to settle for a 22-yard field goal by Joshua Rowland and a 10-7 lead. I say that somewhat sarcastically, but genuinely believe that is a game that should have been circle don the Texas schedule before the season started. Hill was stripped at the Texas 7 and the Longhorns recovered. The Cowboys head to Morgantown, West Virginia to take on the West Virginia Mountaineers. Oklahoma State has not lost in Austin since 2008 and has won five of the last seven meetings between the two teams - with both Oklahoma State losses coming in Stillwater. Texas got 90 of its total yards on one pass or things would have been much more lopsided in the statistics, if not the scoreboard. After rushing for more than 100 yards in his past two games, Ehlinger had 16 carries for -10 yards. Texas has played much better since, but a double-overtime defeat at USC and close loss to rival Oklahoma will be viewed as major missed opportunities. The Longhorns had chances down the stretch to win it, but the Cowboys came up with key stops time and again.
