STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) Oklahoma State has shown over and over again this season that it's a powerful threat to run the ball against any opponent.

And just when the opposing defense is lulled into thinking the deep ball will never come, the Cowboys have proven they're a threat to do that too.

Just ask Colorado.

Trailing 14-nothing with only seconds to go before halftime, the Buffaloes relaxed for one play against the run-heavy Cowboys.

With one 58-yard heave, the Cowboys struck a deflating blow against Colorado and took a controlling 21-nothing edge into the locker room at halftime.

The long toss from Donovan Woods to Prentiss Elliott was the longest pass play of the season for a team that entered the game with 236 rush attempts and just 47 pass attempts.

The Cowboys also got their usual steady contribution from the run game. Vernand Morency had his seventh straight regular-season 100-yard game to lead a 236-yard performance on the ground.
