STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) _ Oklahoma State coach Les Miles is refusing to place blame for the Cowboys collapse in Saturday's 56-to-35 loss to Texas.

OSU led 35-to-7 in the first half only to see the Longhorns score seven straight touchdowns in the come-from-behind win.

Defensive coordinator Bill Clay has been the subject of criticism because the defense failed to stop Texas.

But Miles says the entire team lost, not just one player or coach

He says the problems on defense stemmed from a lack of focus and the players letting Texas' comeback get them out of the way they had been coached to play.

OSU hosts Baylor Saturday in the final home game of the season.
