STILLWATER, Oklahoma -- On the Cowboys last meaningful drive of the game, Oklahoma State quarterback Zac Robinson was scrambling in an attempt to score and end the game. Texas Tech’s Jamar Wall stepped up to stop Robinson, and the force of the hit shook both players up, forced the Cowboys only turnover of the game, and caused Robinson to leave the game for treatment.

But despite the turnover, the Cowboys defense responded, and held the Red Raiders yet another time in the contest.

It was billed as the matchup of two of the top passing teams in the Big 12, but it was the defenses that came out and impressed early.

The Cowboys held the high powered Texas Tech offense to 10 points through three quarters, led by cornerback Perrish Cox.

Cox ended the game with four tackles, one tackle for loss, and two interceptions, but more importantly provided energy for the Cowboys defense.

In the fourth quarter, OSU’s Patrick Lavine intercepted Steven Sheffield and took it back 21 yards for the score, putting the Cowboys in the lead 24-10.

Texas Tech would score again, but the Cowboys’ defense would stop them on a critical fourth down to end the Red Raider threat once and for all, and hold on to win 24-17.

Offensively, the Cowboys scored once early, but didn’t truly get back on track again until the second half, but not by scoring, but through ball control.

The Cowboys held the ball for 32 minutes this game, 14 of which came on their first two drives of the second half.

Oklahoma State was able to hold on to the ball because of the running game, led by Robinson. The senior signal caller rushed 19 times for 106 yards, averaging 5.6 yards per carry before leaving the game late in the fourth quarter due to injury.

Oklahoma Sports will update information on Robinson’s injury as it becomes available.
