BYU Cougars vs. Oklahoma State Cowboys | Full Game Highlights

The No. 20 Oklahoma State Cowboys have successfully secured a spot in the Big 12 Championship game. On Saturday at the Boone Pickens Stadium in Stillwater, the home team defeated the BYU Cougars 40-34 in a double-overtime victory.

The Cowboys clinched the win with star running back Ollie Gordon II scoring his fifth touchdown in the second overtime. The victory improved Oklahoma State’s overall record to 9-3 and their conference record to 7-2.

Oklahoma State safety Trey Rucker also secured a crucial fumble, successfully taking the ball away from BYU tight end Isaac Rex. The fumble propelled the Cowboys to the final victory.

Now, with a 9-3 record, Oklahoma State has ousted rival Oklahoma Sooners from the championship title game. Their recent victory has now set the stage for a clash with No. 7 Texas Longhorns at AT&T Stadium in Arlington on December 2.

Overcoming 18-point deficit

Cowboys’ triumph over BYU followed a comeback from an 18-point deficit in the second half, forced into overtime by BYU’s fourth-quarter field goal. Despite a challenging first half, where they trailed 24-6, the Cowboys rallied.

Gordon, who is currently the nation’s leading rusher, accumulated 166 rushing yards, reaching a season total of 1,580. His second touchdown marked the turning point for the team after a deficit. Following his lead, Oklahoma State scored three more, including the decisive fifth touchdown in the second overtime.

Aside from Gordon’s stellar performance, quarterback Alan Bowman threw for 321 yards, and wide receiver Leon Johnson III made nine catches for 132 yards. All three contributed to Oklahoma State’s third-largest comeback in school history.

On the other hand, BYU now stood with a record of 5-7. Quarterback Jake Retzlaff, stepping in for the injured Kedon Slovis, passed for 166 yards and scored two rushing touchdowns.
