After what seemed like an eternity and at least three years, the Cowboys finally have a viable running game too. Yes, Jarrod Harper had filled in for Karl Joseph when the future first-rounder was lost for the season to injury past year. The Cowboys march up the field, but then the Mountaineers defense locked down on the Cowboys offense.and the Cowboys came away with another field goal. OSU got it back and Ben Grogan again connected on a field goal, this one from 25 yards to give OSU a 6-3 lead. Skyler Howard hit Shelton Gibson on a slant and go while OSU had a corner blitz called and it proved costly for the Pokes. West Virginia followed with a pick, which the Cowboys turned into a field goal to put the game out of reach.

Shorts got things going against TCU on West Virginia's opening possession — not for a catch but for his effort afterward to bull through a defender into the end zone for a 10-yard score.

"Press Virginia" was in full effect as the Mountaineers often made it hard for Tech to get the ball across the midcourt line. In rushing, Justice Hill ran for 162 yards and a touchdown in 22 carries while Chris Carson added 59 yards and two touchdowns in eight carries. The score is now Oklahoma State - 27 and West Virginia - 10. Hired consultants provided data to the Big 12 that showed the conference's chances to place a team in the playoff would improve by having 12 members split into two divisions, with a championship game. Gundy joined Kansas State's Bill Snyder, Oklahoma's Bob Stoops, TCU's Gary Patterson, Iowa's Kirk Ferentz, Alabama's Nick Saban and Utah's Kyle Whittingham.

Oklahoma State scored off three West Virginia turnovers, upsetting the previously ideal Mountaineers. Saquon Barkley ran for 207 yards and two touchdowns, Trace McSorley threw three scoring passes, and No. 24 Penn State (6-2, 4-1) used a 24-point third quarter as the centerpiece of its 62-24 victory against Purdue (3-5, 1-4).
