There's not much to say about this game other than it was completely dominated by the Oklahoma State Cowboys.
Purdue needed to do two things to stay competitive in the Heart of Dallas Bowl: limit Oklahoma State's big plays on offense and don't turn the ball over. In both areas, Purdue failed. Miserably.
Oklahoma State built an early lead thanks to some great play from starting quarterback Clint Chelf, and the Cowboys never looked back. The Boilermakers were never really in the game, and the 525 offensive yards surrendered by Purdue is only one example of where Oklahoma State ran up big numbers.
Oklahoma State had 311 passing yards and 214 rushing yards as Purdue was unable to stop any aspect of the Cowboys' attack today in Dallas. Chelf was 17-of-22 for 197 yards and three touchdowns while four other Cowboys completed at least one pass for a combined 114 yards. J.W. Walsh added the other two passing touchdowns for the Pokes.
The lone bright spot for Purdue was Akeem Shavers. He totaled 93 yards on 14 carries, and also added 54 yards on four receptions to lead the Boilers in both rushing and receiving yards. Quarterback Robert Marve was thoroughly unimpressive despite finishing with decent yardage. Marve was 21-of-34 for 212 yards and two touchdowns, but he also threw two interceptions.
The 58 points surrendered by Purdue was the most in a bowl game in the program's history.
