The Oklahoma State Cowboys looked to punch in their third straight ten win season as they faced the Virginia Tech Hokies in the Camping World Bowl in Orlando, Florida.

On the Cowboys opening drive, Oklahoma State settled for a 31 yard field goal by Matt Amendola, and OSU went up to a 3-0 lead.

When the Hokies took the field, an eight play, 73 yard drive resulted in a touchdown with a 13 yard run by freshman quarterback Josh Jackson. Virginia Tech went up 7-3 with eight minutes remaining in the first.

Oklahoma State did not score a touchdown until a minute before half. A 50 yard pass from Mason Rudolph to Marcell Ateman set up a one yard touchdown run by Justice Hill.

In the third quarter, the Cowboys came out firing. An eight play, 79 yard drive was capped off by a 17 yard pass from Rudolph to Dillon Stoner.

The Hokies responded on their next drive to make it a six point game as Jackson found Erick Kumah on a nine yard strike.

But the next time the Cowboys took the field, they found the end zone again. A classic connection as Rudolph hit James Washington for the 65 yard score to make it a 27-14 game.

With the reception Washington became Oklahoma State's all time leading receiver.

Virginia Tech got on the board once more in the fourth quarter with a five yard touchdown run, but with three minutes remaining, the Cowboys sealed the game with a final 38 yard field goal from Amendola.

Mason Rudolph was crowned MVP of the Camping World Bowl and will leave OSU having set 52  school records.

The Cowboys beat the Hokies with a final score of 30-21.
