Defense bails out conservative Oklahoma State to stay alive in playoff race

Defense bails out conservative Oklahoma State to stay alive in playoff race

It wasn't scripted the way most Cowboys wins are. Quarterback Mason Rudolph came into the game leading the country in yards per game, averaging 394 yards.

Texas moved down to the Oklahoma State 6 on its overtime series, but Longhorn quarterback Sam Ehlinger lofted an ill-advised pass into the corner of the end zone on third down.

Though the Cowboys are technically still in the playoff race, they haven't looked like such a squad against a team of outcome in more than a month. Texas had the ball spotted at the six-yard line on the play, shortly after being given the ball at the 12-yard line on a pass interference call in the end zone against Oklahoma State. But midway through the first half, the team had a lot to celebrate. Texas has played much better since, but a double-overtime defeat at USC and close loss to rival Oklahoma will be viewed as major missed opportunities. The Longhorns were unable to establish a run game with 33 carries for only 42 yards. Hill sporadically found room to run, but not consistently. Oklahoma State allowed just 13 first downs and held Texas to 3-of-17 on third down tries.

How bad did things get on Saturday for the once video-game-like Cowboys' offense?

But OSU's offense lacked the explosion it's had at times this season, and the Cowboys were conservative late, running on five of their final eight plays of regulation.

But the defense picked them up. The Cowboys beat Texas for the fifth straight time in Austin, the most ever by a Longhorns opponent.

The Cowboys countered with a 12-play, 74-yard drive that ended with Ammendola's 19-yard field goal with 12:31 to play in the fourth quarter that tied the game at 10.

The Cowboys are coming off a blowout win over Baylor, while the Longhorns lost to Oklahoma in Dallas.

There were some mistakes, but Gundy and Co. emerged from their conference road trip with a win.
