Oklahoma State led the Oklahoma Sooners throughout the entire contest last Saturday, but was unable to hang on in overtime, as Brennan Clay ran in the decisive touchdown to put OU on top.
OK State didn't get the victory, but it played very well on the road.
Sure, the Cowboys gave up 500 yards to OU passer Landry Jones, but this was never going to be a top 10 defense.
The defense did force two turnovers, and Joseph Randle was absolutely dominant rushing the ball. Quarterback Clint Chelf wasn't bad either, with over 300 total yards and a score.
Obviously, there's no such thing as a moral victory, and the Cowboys will long look at this as a game they let slip away.
However, they did show that they have the skills to compete with the best teams in the Big 12, and they will hopefully take some positives away from a very exciting contest.
