The #21 Oklahoma State Cowboys defeated the Texas Christian Horned Frogs 24-10, but the game was a lot closer. Both teams committed many penalties and turnovers on Saturday.
Cowboys quarterback JW Walsh was pulled in the second quarter after throwing his second interception. His first happened on the first drive, but the second occurred in the middle of the end zone after an amazing drive by the offense. He finished the game 9/18 with 115 yards and replaced by senior Clint Chelf.
Chelf was greeted by a round of applause, but his first pass was intercepted. The next two drives resulted in a field goal and touchdown, which put the Cowboys ahead 17-0. However, Ben Grogan missed a 32-yard field goal to end the half. On the previous Cowboy drive he missed Earlier a 31-yard field goal.
TCU’s first half was even worse. They only had 60 yards of total offense and could not capitalize on any Cowboys turnover, even when they turned it over on downs. They replaced their quarterback Trevone Boykin with redshirt freshman Tyler Matthews in the second quarter. He fumbled his first play and could not complete his pass. Boykin returned in the second half.
The second half was not much better for either team. The Frogs caught up with a field goal in the third quarter and touchdown late in the fourth, but the Cowboys answered with one last touchdown.
Cowboys wide receiver was the one shining star of the game. He put them ahead 7-0 when he returned a punt 95-yards. It is the longest in OSU’s history.
TCU had nine penalties for 85 yards and OSU had nine penalties for 70 yards.
