Oklahoma State Defeated by West Virginia in Shocking Upset
The West Virginia Mountaineers may not be having the season they were hoping for, but they were able to pull off the big upset, taking down No. 11 Oklahoma State.
J.W. Walsh led the Cowboys to start the game, drawing first blood on a 73-yard touchdown in the first quarter to put them up 7-0.
After that, however, the Mountaineers had control for the rest of the first half.
Ishmael Banks came up with a huge pick-six on Walsh less than two minutes after the Cowboys scored their first touchdown to tie things up. Clint Trickett finished the first quarter by throwing a 17-yard touchdown to Kevin White to go up 14-7.
The second quarter began with a field goal by Josh Lambert to put West Virginia up 17-7. After another Walsh touchdown put the Cowboys back in it at 17-14, West Virginia marched down the field and came up with a Charles Sims touchdown on the ground, and that's where the half ended at 24-14.
The Cowboys got closer in the third quarter, with yet another Walsh touchdown to put them within three points. However, two field goals by West Virginia sealed the Cowboys' fate, making it a two possession ball game with just under 1:30 left in the game.
Trickett, who was making his first start with West Virginia after transferring from Florida State, went 24-for-50 with 309 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions.
The Mountaineers now move to 3-2 on the season, and they will be looking to turn the season around after two disappointing losses to Oklahoma and Maryland.
For the Cowboys, they'll be hoping that they don't drop too far in the rankings.
