WACO, Texas (AP) Oklahoma State gets bowl eligible with a 45-14 victory tonight over Baylor, which finished the season without winning in the Big 12 Conference and likely played its last game under coach Guy Morriss.

There has been growing speculation that Morriss, who has a year left on his contract, will be fired after being unable to produce a winning record in his five seasons. Baylor finishes the season 3-9 overall.

Meanwhile, OSU improves to 6-5 overall and 4-3 in Big 12 play with one game left, against Oklahoma.

OSU quarterback Zac Robinson threw for 202 yards and two touchdowns and ran 17 times for 144 yards and two more scores to lead OSU, which is bowl eligible for the fifth time in six seasons.

Dantrell Savage had his eighth straight 100-yard rushing game, with 109 yards and two TDs on 16 carries.

The Cowboys have never been to five bowls in six seasons.
