Time to meet a face perhaps unfamiliar to national viewers: Oklahoma State receiver Bo Bowling, who's second only to Justin Blackmon in receiving yards this afternoon. The duo are the stars of Oklahoma State's first second-quarter drive, with Bowling catching two passes for eight and 14 yards and Blackmon breaking off for a 38-yard catch down the middle. Kendall Hunter does the rest: Four short runs and he's in, despite a Baylor facemask on the goal line.
Jay Finley gets the first couple touches for the Bears, and Robert Griffin takes over. He's not turning heads with his completion rating, but he gets a respectable drive going from Baylor's 20 down to OKState's 27, where a Jay Finley fumble surrenders the ball.
Back to Hunter, Weeden, and Blackmon. The 'Pokes make short work of the next drive thanks to a 22-yard Hunter rush and a 20-yard Weeden-Blackmon connection. Hunter scores his second short-yardage touchdown of the afternoon with 4:46 remaining in the half.
Gut check time for the Bears. Another Griffin-intensive drive ends in an endzone interception, but Oklahoma State's responding drive ends in a missed 31-yard field goal. At the end of the first half, Oklahoma State leads Baylor, 24-0.
