Oklahoma State entered Saturday in search of their first win in Fort Worth since 1947. OSU had some success on the opening drive, but was stopped on 4th down from their own 32.
Midway through the first, TCU would win the field position battle. Barry J. Sanders muffed a punt inside OSU's 15 and TCU's Paul Whitmill recovered. Two plays later, Kenny Hill found KaVontae Turpin on a jet sweep touchdown pass. The Frogs took a 6-0 lead as OSU would block the extra point.
On their ensuing drive, OSU would answer, Mason Rudolph found Chris Lacy for 30 yards on a beautiful fade. Those two finished the drive off when Rudolph hit Lacy for a 3 yard touchdown. The Cowboys converted the extra point and OSU had a one point advantage, 7-6.
After trading a plethora of punts from the middle of the first quarter and most of the second, OSU broke the trend with a Ben Grogan 27 yard field goal. The Pokes extended their lead to 10-6.
TCU's next possession, they took the ball inside the five, but the OSU defense stood pat and held the Frogs scoreless after stopping them on 4th down. OSU had a 10-6 halftime lead.
In the 2nd half, the Poke defense prevented TCU from doing anything. Once OSU got the ball back, the effective ground performance continued. Chris Carson scampered 19 yards for the touchdown. OSU on top 17-6.
The Cowboys forced their first turnover of the day when Kenny Hill threw his 11th interception of the season to Lenzy Pipkins. Off the turnover, Mason Rudolph found Chris Lacy for 63 yards. That set up a two yard Mason Rudolph touchdown run. The Cowboys cruising 24-6.
OSU wasn't done. Mason Rudolph found pay dirt for a second time on the ground with a 12 yard touchdown run to pad OSU's lead to 31-6 over the Frogs.
That's how the game would end. Oklahoma State topped TCU 31-6.
Freshman Justice Hill ran 16 times for 154 yards. Chris Carson ran it 17 times for 146 yards and a touchdown. It's the first time since August of 2013 OSU has had two 100 yard rushers in the same game. Even Mason Rudolph had success on the ground. He had 2 rushing touchdowns.
Passing the ball, Rudolph only completed 50 percent of his passes but didn't turn it over. Chris Lacy hauled in four catches for 109 yards and a touchdown.
With the win, all OSU needs to do is win Bedlam to become Big 12 champions. If the Sooners beat West Virginia, Bedlam will be for the Big 12 Championship for the fourth time in six years.
Bedlam is December 3rd in Norman.
