It's a fitting way to end a disappointing day.
Great play on the ball by Oklahoma State CB Justin Gilbert.
Gilbert's still a bit raw but he's definitely got NFL skills.
Stedman Bailey now has 13 catches for 212 yards today.
If he didn't play today, there's no telling how bad Geno Smith would have looked.
Down by 21, and West Virginia is still throwing screens.
At least try to get the ball down the field.
West Virginia's special teams finally does something right by partially blocking that Quinn Sharp punt.
It's just too little, too late, though.

Josh Stewart took his 13th catch of the day into the end zone for his third touchdown of the game to put Oklahoma State up by two scores.
Great throw by Clint Chelf on that deep pass down the sideline. That was perfect touch and placement on that pass.
Admittedly, though, it helped that CB Pat Miller decided not to look back and find the ball.
Absolutely terrible job by West Virginia's punt coverage team.
Four Mountaineers surrounded the ball and simply watched it roll into the end zone.
It's the end of the third quarter and this game has already gone over the total of 74 that the Las Vegas sportsbooks set for this matchup.

Outstanding catch by Josh Stewart.
Stewart's got a bright future ahead of him in Stillwater. He's clearly got star potential.
Like I said before, weak arm-tackles aren't going to cut it against a running back like Joseph Randle.

It looked like Garvin was in at first, but judging by the replay, it's clear that he stepped out at the one.
That's the type of game-changing play that really swings the momentum in the Mountaineers' favor.
Now they have to punch it in.
