UCF trounces No. 15 Oklahoma State in 45-3 upset

Publish Date: 11/12/2023
Fact checked by: Mike Goodpaster

The UCF Knights (5-5, 2-5) routed No. 15 Oklahoma State (7-3, 5-2) on Saturday (Nov. 11), dominating the Cowboys in a 45-3 upset and dashing their hopes of extending their five-game win streak.

The Cowboys went in hot after winning five consecutive games, the last one being their 27-24 victory against their rival Oklahoma Sooners last weekend. The last Bedlam win for the Cowboys had put the team in a tie for first place in the Big 12.

However, their loss against the Knights cut their win streak short, dealing a blow to the Cowboys’ chances of earning the Big 12 championship title.

Following the game, the Texas Longhorns now stand on top for the Big 12 with six wins and one loss, while the second place is crowded by Oklahoma State (Cowboys), Oklahoma (Sooners), Iowa State (Cyclones) and Kansas State (Wildcats), all with five wins and two losses.

Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy said the Knights had “outcoached” the Cowboys, making plays that they hadn’t made themselves.

“They did a really good job at coaching. They are good with what they do on offense. And then we couldn’t capitalize offensively in certain situations and it snowballed into what ended up happening.”

UCF snaps losing streak

On the other hand, UCF went into the Saturday game with five losses and one win. UCF had been on a losing streak for the first five games in the Big 12, before finally snapping out of the streak last week by defeating Cincinnati Bearcats 28-26 on Sunday, November 5.

RJ Harvey was at the helm of the Knights during the Saturday game against the Cowboys, rushing for three touchdowns and 206 yards, highlighted by a 92-yard touchdown run in the third quarter.

“During the losing streak, we just stayed close,” Harvey said. “Nobody got down. We knew our potential. We just need to execute each play and not turn the ball over.”

The Knights are now on a two-win streak following their win against Oklahoma State, currently standing at two wins and five losses. The UCF Knights are set to come up against the Texas Tech Red Raiders next week on Sunday, November 19.
