Oklahoma State Vs. Texas Final Score: Cowboys Down Longhorns, 38-26

Well, after a wild third quarter, things calmed down for Oklahoma State and Texas. In fact, the only points scored in the fourth quarter came from a safety by Oklahoma State. That didn't change the outcome of anything, other than perhaps giving Texas a little bit more respectable loss of 12 points rather than 14; the Cowboys still own, 38-26.

If you were watching the game on ABC, you're no doubt aware that this is the first time Texas has lost under Mack Brown when running for more than 200 yards in 71 such games. Of course, the Longhorns allowed 202 yards rushing to the Cowboys and got outgained overall (420-370).

Still, it's only the second-worst game by Texas against a team whose name starts with "Oklahoma." So that's progress. Oklahoma State, meanwhile, seems to be on a collision course for a rather large game on Dec. 3 with that other Oklahoma team.

Oklahoma State Vs. Texas Score Update: Oklahoma State Still Leads During Wild Third Quarter

It wasn't just a tighter-than-expected first half; we actually appear to have a game in Austin. Or maybe not.

Oklahoma State kicked off the second half with a 100-yard kickoff return for a touchdown. (Pardon the pun.) Texas responded with its own 100-yard kickoff return for a touchdown -- on the next play -- getting back to an 11-point deficit.

The Longhorns' next drive wasn't that much longer; Malcolm Brown ran 24 yards for a touchdown on the second play of the drive to cut the deficit to four. Then it was Oklahoma State's turn to get back on the board, driving 64 yards to set up the 22-yard field goal and extend the lead to 31-24.

But then, Texas went three-and-out. Oklahoma State followed that up with a possession that ended on a 74-yard touchdown run by Jeremy Smith, and it's now 38-24. Which is by no means over -- especially considering that there are almost 20 minutes left and the way the second half has gone so far.

Oklahoma State Vs. Texas Halftime Score: Cowboys Only Have Comfortable Lead, 21-10

After Texas got thoroughly blown to smithereens by Oklahoma last week, many expected Oklahoma State to be able to similarly destroy the Longhorns this Saturday. And the Cowboys do have a comfortable lead, but just that, ahead 21-10 going into halftime.

Brandon Weeden is 14-of-23 for 176 yards and a touchdown for Oklahoma State, with 71 of those yards and the score going to Justin Blackmon on six catches. The running game has accounted for the other two touchdowns and a nice 5.1 yard per carry average, but they've only gotten 11 chances to run.

Texas, meanwhile, has used the running game to try to take some of the pressure off David Ash. Malcolm Brown has 72 yards and Texas' lone touchdown on 11 carries, part of 126 yards on 27 rushes for the Longhorns' ground attack. Even so, Ash already has a clear favorite target -- Mike Davis, who has 68 of the 70 receiving yards for Texas and has caught seven of the nine passes Ash has completed.

Oklahoma State Vs. Texas Score: Longhorns Tie Game Following Botched Punt Return

The Oklahoma State Cowboys started out solid in their bid to beat the Texas Longhorns for the second straight season. as the Okie State offense hung seven points on the scoreboard and the team's defense forced a punt, an interception and a turnover on downs to cause the Longhorns to go scoreless in the first quarter of Saturday afternoon's game. The second quarter started out a bit better for the Longhorns, however, and the teams are currently tied at seven points apiece.

Oklahoma State's touchdown came on a five-play, 64-yard drive capped off by a Joseph Randle run. The running back has rushed five times for 25 yards thus far as the passing attack hasn't quite got underway thanks to just five first quarter passes being thrown by quarterback Brandon Weeden.

The Longhorns answered back in the second quarter when running back Malcolm Brown found his way into the end zone on a 15-yard run. The Longhorns originally were forced to punt on fourth-and-28, but when an Oklahoma State upback touched the ball, the Longhorns recovered and Brown did the rest.

This game may get interesting now as the Cowboys seem to be giving the Longhorns every opportunity to pull off the upset.
