MSU 3, OSU 21—Final
After a slow start, No. 13 Oklahoma State defeated Mississippi State behind a great defensive effort.
Led by new defensive coordinator Glenn Spencer, OSU only allowed MSU to convert on 2 of 16 third downs and forced two turnovers.
Furthermore, amid the offense's early struggles, OSU may have found their starting quarterback in J.W. Walsh. In relief of Clint Chelf, Walsh ran for 118 yards and passed for 135 yards.
As a team OSU rushed for 276 yards on the day.
OSU will play the University of Texas at San Antonio next Saturday, and MSU will play Alcorn State.
