Oklahoma State's defense stifled the Baylor offense and held them out of the endzone until the fourth quarter.
Robert Griffin III could not keep the Baylor Bears offense on par with the Oklahoma St. Cowboys offensive attack, and Baylor did not get their first touchdown of the game until the fourth quarter. Oklahoma State rushed out to a 35-0 lead mostly from their running game which shredded the Baylor defense for 329 yards.
The Baylor offense was able to move the ball, but their drives kept stalling. In the first half Baylor turned the ball over on downs after having drives of 16 and 11 plays, missed a field goal on an eight play drive and had two interceptions on drives that went eight and 13 plays each. The problem was getting the ball in the endzone.
Griffin did throw for 425 yards but he had two interceptions and only one touchdown; Oklahoma State's defense also held Griffin to only 27 yards on the ground. Oklahoma State's defense had been getting flack, but in today's game they did not allow points until the game was out of hand and forced five turnovers against Baylor.
Oklahoma State was led by quarterback Brandon Weeden who threw for a mere 274 yards and three touchdown passes. The running game took the offense to glory with Joseph Randall rushing for 152 yards and four scores while Herschel Sims had 104 yards and a score.
Baylor has now loss two straight and three of their last four games to drop their record to 4-3. Next week they take on the Missouri Tigers.
