In a battle of Top 25 teams, Oklahoma State upended the Broncos of Boise State, 44-21 in Stillwater, OK.
Poke quarterback Taylor Cornelius passed for 246 yards and one score in a 15-26 performance. He also ran for 44 yards and two scores Justice Hill ran for 123 in 15 totes and one score for OSU.
OSU used a powerful defense to take the fight to Boise State as Pokes defensive coordinator Jim Knowles dialed up a more physical team that the Broncos were used to playing.
On offense, the O-State line was good, finding holes for the runners and providing Cornelius time to get his passes off.
Overall, a major win for the Cowboys and now the schedule sets up for a positive run of games until the big three of the conference come up in November. TCU, Oklahoma, and West Virginia will provide the exciting final season ending tussles.
