COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- There was one big question going into Saturday's game: How would the Oklahoma State Cowboys win without Kendall Hunter and Dez Bryant?
The question coming out of Saturday's game: How did the Cowboys beat the Texas A&M Aggies with 118 yards of penalties.
The Cowboys struggled through the first half, unable to find a rhythm despite putting up 218 yards, which led to a 15-14 deficit at the break. Oklahoma State went 1-6 on third downs in the first half while splitting the time of possession essentially down the middle with Texas A&M, 14:39 to 15:21 respectively.
After struggling through the first half, the Cowboys found their rhythm to beat Texas A&M 36-31 at College Station.
