The Texas Tech Red Raiders traveled to Stillwater to play the Oklahoma State Cowboys on Saturday with the intentions of moving up in the Big 12 standings, earning an invite to a more prestigious bowl, and notching a win in a road environment where they have been unable to do so since 2001.
Joseph Randle had 17 carries for 91 yards and a touchdown in Oklahoma State's 59-21 win.
Those hopes quickly faded when Oklahoma State posted 28 unanswered points in the second quarter and 59 total to beat the Red Raiders 59-21.
Isaiah Anderson had four catches for 174 yards and three touchdowns in the second quarter that busted the game wide open for the Cowboys.
Joseph Randle added 91 yards and a touchdown on 17 carries on the ground.
For the Red Raiders, Darrin Moore Jr. had nine catches for 140 yards and a touchdown.
Tech’s eight penalties for 70 yards, two blocked punts, and three turnovers quenched the momentum of several drives.
Seth Doege was sacked three times and was intercepted twice by a hungry Oklahoma State defense.
The Red Raider defense, which hasn’t created a turnover since their triple-overtime win over TCU on Oct. 20, gave up 487 yards to Oklahoma State.
Texas Tech fell to 7-4 on the year, while Oklahoma State improved to 7-3
The Red Raiders will play their final regular season game Saturday in Cowboys Stadium against the Baylor Bears.
