Well so much for this morning's game between Oklahoma State and Baylor being a shootout in Stillwater. It seems Oklahoma State has decided to mix things up and bring a defense with them today.
It's halftime in Stillwater, and the Cowboys hold a 24-0 lead over Baylor. The Bears have only managed to put up 176 yards in the first half, and have killed themselves with three turnovers. The biggest one may have come late in the half. Baylor had put together its best drive of the game to get within the Oklahoma State 20-yard line, but Robert Griffin III was picked off in the end zone, ending the threat. It was the second time Baylor turned the ball over on what looked like a promising scoring drive.
Meanwhile, Oklahoma State can do no wrong on offense. Brandon Weeden has already thrown for 244 yards while Justin Blackmon has 8 catches for 114 yards and a touchdown. Kendall Hunter has 69 yards rushing and the Cowboys other two touchdowns of the half.
Still, the story has been the Oklahoma State defense, which until this week, I wasn't even aware existed. Baylor has yet to find any rhythmn on offense, and when they do, the Cowboys for a turnover.
What I had thought would be one of the most entertaining games of the day looks like it's going to turn out to be a blowout, and Baylor can kiss whatever chance it had to win the Big 12 goodbye.
