  Spencer Sanders threw for a touchdown and ran for another and No. 7 Oklahoma State beat No. 10 Oklahoma 37-33 on Saturday night to keep alive its College Football Playoff chances and stop the Sooners' streak of Big 12 titles at six. Oklahoma State (11-1, 8-1, No. 7 CFP) snapped a six-game losing streak to Oklahoma. The Cowboys will play No. 9 Baylor next Saturday for the Big 12 championship. Oklahoma (10-2, 7-2, No. 10 CFP) got the ball one last time at its 20-with 54 seconds remaining and no timeouts. Caleb Williams scrambled and ran 56 yards to put the Sooners in scoring range. But Oklahoma State's Collin Oliver sacked Williams on fourth down at the Oklahoma State 32 with eight seconds remaining, setting off a wild celebration.

Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy won for just the third time in 17 tries against Oklahoma. Now, the Cowboys can win their first Big 12 title since 2011. Oklahoma opened the second-half scoring in an odd way. Oklahoma's Perrion Winfrey hit Oklahoma State's Dominic Richardson, the ball came loose, and Oklahoma State recovered in the end zone for a safety. Oklahoma struck again after forcing a three-and-out. Presley muffed the punt, and Justin Broiles recovered in the end zone to give the Sooners a 33-24 lead. Sanders went 37 yards for a touchdown on an option keep, and Oklahoma State cut Oklahoma's lead to 33-31 with 13:52 remaining. - Oklahoma State/AP College Football

  Oklahoma State's 23-0 win at Texas Tech marked the first time the Red Raiders had been shut out since 1997 and the first time the Cowboys blanked an opponent on the road since 1995. Before Saturday, the Cowboys hadn't recorded a shutout since an 84-0 win over Savannah State in 2012. Savannah State was in the Football Championship Subdivision at the time. Texas Tech entered the game averaging 33.6 points and 440.6 yards of total offense per game. OSU held the Red Raiders to 108 total yards. - AP College Football

  Ninth-ranked Oklahoma State is going to play for a championship because of its dominating defense. Oklahoma State wrapped up its first spot in the Big 12 championship game with a 23-0 victory over Texas Tech on Saturday night, completely throttling an offense that hadn't been shut out since 1997. The Cowboys have allowed only one offensive touchdown over their past four games, but this was their first shutout on the road since 1995. Spencer Sanders threw a touchdown and ran for another score, and Tanner Brown kicked three field goals for the Cowboys (10-1, 7-1, CFP No. 9). The defense limited Texas Tech (6-5, 3-5), which had scored in 302 consecutive games, to 108 total yards that included a 25-yard pass on the final drive.

With Bedlam at home next Saturday against 12th-ranked Oklahoma, the Cowboys are already assured of playing in the Big 12 title game Dec. 4 at AT&T Stadium, the home of the NFL's Dallas Cowboys. Still to be determined is if they will be the home or visiting team, and who they will play. Oklahoma State and Oklahoma (10-1, 7-1, CFP No. 13) are tied for the Big 12 lead, so the winner next Saturday night will finish first in the regular-season standings. No. 11 Baylor (9-2, 6-2, CFP No. 11), which hosts Texas Tech earlier that day, is the only other team that could get in the title game. Oklahoma State had its own issues at times offensively, but ended up with 427 total yards never trailed after going 70 yards on its opening drive for a 24-yard field goal. - Oklahoma State/AP College Football

  With Heisman Trophy-winning running back Barry Sanders on hand, Oklahoma State showed it still can run the football at an elite level. Jaylen Warren produced three of his team's eight rushing touchdowns to help the 10th-ranked Cowboys roll past TCU 63-17 on Saturday night. It was a great all-around day for the program. A 9-foot bronze statue of Sanders was unveiled outside of Oklahoma State's Boone Pickens Stadium before the game. At halftime, the 1988 Heisman winner's name and No. 21 jersey number were put in the Cowboy Football Ring of Honor inside the stadium.

Oklahoma State put on a rushing clinic in front of Sanders, former players who returned to campus to support him and a crowd dressed in black. The rushing touchdown total was the second-best in program history. Dominic Richardson and Dezmon Jackson each had two rushing scores. "The offensive line played well," Oklahoma State quarterback Spencer Sanders said. "I feel like the offensive line just really dominated the front today, and that really helped our backs, and our backs made a couple of guys miss and made some wonderful plays." The Cowboys (9-1, 6-1 Big 12, No. 10 CFP) won their third straight. Oklahoma State moved into a tie for first place in the conference with Oklahoma with two games remaining, including a showdown with the Sooners on Nov. 27. "We just keep getting better every day," Sanders said. "We take it day by day, snap by snap. As long as we keep doing that, take care of the little things, the little things will take care of the big things." - Oklahoma State/AP College Football

  NOV 8 ACC BIG 12 NEWCOMER OF THE WEEK: Jaylen Warren, OSU, RB, Sr.,...Warren finished with 78 rushing yards to lead all players in the game on just 16 carries (4.9 yards per carry) in OSUs 24-3 win at West Virginia. He scored a 13-yard rushing touchdown in the fourth quarter to seal the win for the Cowboys. Warren added nine receiving yards to bring his all-purpose yardage to 87, also the most for the Cowboys on the day. Six of Warren's 16 carries resulted in either a first down or a touchdown. - Big 12 Football

  Spencer Sanders threw two touchdown passes, No. 11 Oklahoma State had eight sacks and the Cowboys beat West Virginia 24-3 on Saturday. Oklahoma State (8-1, 5-1 Big 12, No. 11 CFP) has won seven straight over the Mountaineers (4-5, 2-4). The Cowboys pushed around West Virginia's offensive line all game. Devin Harper and Brock Martin had two sacks apiece for the Cowboys. West Virginia, which compiled 492 total yards in a win over Iowa State last week, was limited to 133 total yards Saturday, including 17 yards on the ground against the Big 12's top rushing defense. "That was a pretty impressive defensive performance by our guys," Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy said. "I'm kind of shocked, to be honest with you, that we could play that well defensively against them on the road as well as they've played offensively the last two weeks. Defensively, we just dominated the game. I don't know what else to say." Both of Sanders' TD passes went to Tay Martin in the right corner of the end zone in single coverage.

A roughing-the-passer call against West Virginia's Jared Bartlett on third down gave the Cowboys first-and-goal at the 6 in the second quarter. Sanders found the 6-foot-3 Martin in the end zone on the next play. West Virginia's Graeson Malashevich couldn't corral a third-quarter punt and Oklahoma State's Korie Black recovered at the Mountaineers' 26. Four players later Sanders and Martin connected for a 12-yard TD for a 17-3 lead. Sanders finished 21 of 31 for 182 yards. He threw one interception. Jaylen Warren closed out the scoring with a 13-yard TD run in the fourth quarter. - Oklahoma State/AP College Football

  This was what No. 15 Oklahoma State fans have been waiting for. Spencer Sanders threw for 157 yards and two touchdowns and rushed for 53 yards and a score, all in the first half, to lead Oklahoma State to a 55-3 victory over Kansas on Saturday night. Jaylen Warren added 69 yards rushing on just nine carries and backup running back Dominic Richardson gained 79 yards and a touchdown on 11 rushes for the Cowboys (7-1, 4-1 Big 12). "It's just a great chemistry moment for our team, I thought we just all grew as a team today," Sanders said. "No matter what the score was, we just kept moving." After suffering their first loss, 24-21 to Iowa State last week, the Cowboys responded by dominating Kansas.

It was a rough day for Kansas (1-7, 0-5), which lost its seventh consecutive contest. Backup quarterback Miles Kendrick, who entered the game in the third quarter with the Jayhawks trailing 45-0, led them with 32 yards rushing on nine carries. One week after an outstanding performance in which Kansas led No. 4 Oklahoma 17-7 late in the third quarter before the Sooners rallied for a 35-23 triumph, the Jayhawks looked more like their usual selves in this one. "It's frustrating for them, it's frustrating for the coaches, but ultimately it's my job to get this team to play more consistently. And I haven't done that," KU coach Lance Leipold said. "We're going to continue to work at it. We have a long way to go yet, in growing and understanding. We'll find out if (that Oklahoma game was) a blip on how we play the rest of the season out." Oklahoma State, which hadn't scored more than 32 points this season and averaged 25.7, led 38-0 at halftime and held a 331-49 advantage in yards. Kansas didn't achieve a first down until about six minutes into the third quarter, when the Cowboys already led 45-0. - Oklahoma State/AP College Football

  BIG 12 NEWCOMER OF THE WEEK: Jaylen Warren, Oklahoma State, RB, Sr.,...Warren rushed 33 times for 193 yards in OSU's 32-24 win on the road at No. 25 Texas, accounting for nearly half of the Cowboys' offensive yardage. In the fourth quarter alone, Warren carried 14 times for 138 yards. His performance in the final quarter was the driving factor in OSU turning an 8-point deficit entering the quarter into an 8-point victory. It was his fourth consecutive 100-yard rushing contest. In the last four games, the senior has 659 rushing yards (164.8 per game). He is the only player with two of the top five single-game rushing yardage totals in the Big 12 this season, including No. 1 (218 at Boise State) and No. 5 (193 at Texas). - Big 12 Football

  OCT 18 BIG 12 DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Jason Taylor II, Oklahoma State, FS, Jr.,...Taylor returned a second-quarter interception 85 yards for a touchdown when Texas was holding a 17-3 advantage and at the Oklahoma State 18-yard line. Taylor's pick-six marks the longest interception return for a Big 12 player since 2019 and is the second-longest return for an autonomy league player this season. It ties for the fourth-longest interception return in school history and is the longest for OSU since 2001. The play marked the third touchdown of Taylor's career. Last season, he had an 85-yard fumble return for a touchdown at Kansas State and returned an onside kick 48 yards for a TD against Texas Tech. The junior FS also finished with seven tackles, ranking as the second-most on the team. Taylor's pick-six marked the sixth non-offensive touchdown for Oklahoma State since the start of the 2020 season, three of which were scored by him. - Big 12 Football

  Tanner Brown's fourth field goal gave No. 12 Oklahoma State its first lead and Spencer Sanders' scrambling 10-yard touchdown run with 2:18 to play capped a victory over Texas to keep the Cowboys undefeated. Texas built leads of 17-3 and 24-13 behind three touchdowns from Bijan Robinson before Oklahoma State's defense and punishing run game behind Jaylen Warren took over for the Cowboys (6-0, 3-0 Big 12). Texas (4-3, 2-2) surrendered a big lead in a tough loss for the second straight week. The Longhorns led Oklahoma 28-7 before losing 55-48 last week. Brown's kicking and Jason Taylor II's 85-yard interception return for a touchdown in the second quarter kept the Cowboys' in it while Sanders and the offense were struggling early.

The Cowboys allowed Texas just 317 total yards. Warren finished with 193 yards rushing on 33 carries, pounding out 154 yards in the second half rally. Sanders pulled Oklahoma State to 24-22 with a 7-yard touchdown pass to Brennan Presley. Brown's 29-yard field goal put the Cowboys ahead. Texas still had time to possibly retake the lead, but the Cowboys defense stuffed the Longhorns on fourth down at the Texas 42. Sanders scored two plays later and Oklahoma State then sealed the victory with Tanner McAlister's interception with 1:57 to play. - Oklahoma State/AP College Football

  OCT 4 BIG 12 NEWCOMER OF THE WEEK: Jaylen Warren, Oklahoma State, RB, Sr.,...Warren finished with 125 rushing yards and two touchdowns on 36 carries in OSU's 24-14 win over No. 21 Baylor. His 130 all-purpose yards marked the most for any player in the game, as he has now led the Cowboys in all-purpose yards in three straight outings. The senior RB scored a touchdown on a fourth-down rush with 2:10 remaining in the game to seal the Cowboys' win. He has at least one rushing touchdown in four of OSU's five games this year. - Big 12 football

  Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy is trying to wrap his mind around these low-scoring games in what once was the wide-open Big 12. The transition has been easier for him because his Cowboys are winning. No. 19 Oklahoma State held No. 21 Baylor to 280 total yards and beat the Bears 24-14 on Saturday in a matchup of Big 12 teams that entered the night unbeaten. Such defensive performances are becoming the norm for the Cowboys - they haven't allowed more than 23 points in a game this season. "Obviously, the defense playing good," Gundy said. "I just don't want to jinx them. They just keep playing, good. I hope that they just continue on like that." The offense did just enough.

Jaylen Warren ran for 125 yards and two touchdowns and Tay Martin caught seven passes for 108 yards for the Cowboys (5-0, 2-0). Oklahoma State's Spencer Sanders passed for 182 yards and a touchdown and ran for 76 yards, but he helped Baylor stay in the game by throwing three interceptions. "We've got to play better at that position than he did tonight when it comes to turning the ball over," Gundy said. "He's a dangerous player. But no, we can't miminize those mistakes." Abram Smith rushed for 97 yards and a touchdown for Baylor (4-1, 2-1). The Bears, who were coming off a win over Iowa State, missed a chance to beat ranked teams in consecutive weeks for the first time since 1974. - Oklahoma State/AP College Football

  SEPT 27 BIG 12 CO-DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Malcolm Rodriguez, Oklahoma State, LB, Sr.,...Rodriguez recovered a fumble and scored a touchdown in the first quarter of OSU's 31-20 win over No. 25 Kansas State. He finished with seven tackles to mark his ninth consecutive game with at least seven. He has led the OSU defense in solo stops every game this season, including his six against K-State. The senior LB was also credited with a tackle for loss and a pair of quarterback hurries. - Big 12 Football

  Spencer Sanders completed 22 of 34 passes for 344 yards and two touchdowns, leading Oklahoma State to a 31-20 victory over No. 25 Kansas State on Saturday night. Jaylen Warren rushed for 123 yards on 27 carries and added 81 yards on four receptions for Oklahoma State (4-0, 1-0 Big 12). Sanders also scored a rushing touchdown as Oklahoma State's defense stifled Kansas State's potential comeback attempt. "I made sure I stayed and I watched some extra little film this week, I just wanted to play better," said Spencer, who threw for just 82 yards last week in a 21-20 win over Boise State. "I feel like we all played better, everybody. Heck of a job by the defense. I'm happy we won and I'm just excited to see how much further we can progress." The Cowboys failed to score in the second half for the second consecutive contest.

After compiling 294 yards of total offense and building a 31-10 advantage late in the second quarter, Oklahoma State went cold, gaining just 54 yards in the third quarter, including four consecutive three-and-out possessions. "In the second half, we really weren't trying to do that, in fact we talked about not doing that," OSU coach Mike Gundy said of letting up with a big lead. "We didn't block as well for a quarter and a half. Fortunately, defense was playing good, we started to get a pass rush going in the second half and get some pressure on those guys." - Oklahoma State/AP College Football

  SEPT 20 BIG 12 OFFENSIVE PLAYER & NEWCOMER OF THE WEEK: Jaylen Warren, Oklahoma State, RB, Sr.,...Making his first start as a Cowboy, Warren carried the ball 32 times for 218 yards and two touchdowns in OSU's 21-20 win at Boise State. His totals for carries and rushing yards were both career highs and both numbers marked the most for a player in any game involving a Big 12 team this season. Warren broke free for a 75-yard touchdown run in the first quarter. It was OSU's longest rushing play since Chuba Hubbard scored on a 92-yard rush against TCU in 2019, and tied for the second-longest play from scrimmage in the Big 12 this season. It was the second-longest of Warren's career and also marked his fourth consecutive game with a rushing touchdown. The senior had 150 rushing yards at halftime, the most for a Cowboy in a half since Hubbard rushed for 192 in the second half against TCU in 2019. - Big 12 football
