LINCOLN, Neb. -- James Anderson's high-flying tip-in with 1:58 left in overtime put Oklahoma State up for good as the Cowboys took a 76-74 win over Nebraska on Saturday.

Oklahoma State (13-5, 2-2 Big 12) trailed 69-68 when Keiton Page put up a long jumper that bounced off the rim. Anderson jumped over two Nebraska players, reached out and knocked the ball in, giving Oklahoma State a 72-71 lead.

Marshall Moses then backed a Nebraska defender deep under the rim and turned around for a short jumper to put the Cowboys up 74-71 with 1:20 remaining.

Nebraska (12-6, 2-3 Big 12) cut the Oklahoma State lead to 1 on a pair of Ade Dagunduro free throws, but Byron Eaton drove in for a layup that put the Cowboys up 76-73 with 31 seconds left.

Ryan Anderson missed a 3-pointer for Nebraska with 6 seconds left.
