WACO, Texas – For the second straight year, the Oklahoma State defense held Baylor to seven points as the Cowboys rolled to a 34-7 victory. Oklahoma State kept the Bears in check all day and only allowed 284 yards of total offense.
"I think we did a great job. We came out fired up, we got some turnovers, we did some things,” senior linebacker Andre Sexton said. “We came out hitting, flying around, and just tackling. That's what we need to do.”
The Cowboys were on their way to a shutout before Baylor finally scored with just over seven minutes remaining. Including last week’s win over Missouri, Oklahoma State had held opponents scoreless for five straight quarters.
"Everybody played really solid all across the field from their position,” senior linebacker Patrick Lavine said. “A lot of players stepped up and made plays. We got off the field when we were supposed to.”
The Cowboys kept pressure on Blake Szymanski and Nick Florence throughout the entire contest. Overall, the defense forced four tackles for a loss and an interception.
The defense will need to continue its stellar play next week when Texas comes to town. The Longhorns are averaging 438 yards on offense and 41 points per game.
