Oklahoma State vs. Texas 1st quarter score: Longhorns lead Cowboys in Stillwater, 21-14

The Texas Longhorns took a 21-14 first quarter lead over the Oklahoma State Cowboys in Stillwater. At first, it seemed that the Longhorns' defense was going to be in for a long night, after allowing Joseph Randle to break loose for a 69-yard touchdown run.

Randle broke tackles of two Texas defensive backs to get free down the left side. But quarterback David Ash, Jaxon Shipley and the Longhorns had some offense in store. First Ash found Shipley for a 44-yard touchdown pass, right on the money, in the back right corner of the end zone.

Then Shipley found himself wide open on a blown coverage assignment by the Cowboys, which led to another touchdown pass from Ash, this time from 20 yards out.

The Cowboys tied the game after another missed tackle in the Longhorns' secondary

D.J. Monroe regained the lead for Texas with a 100-yard kickoff return, this time with the Cowboys missing a couple of tackles.
