Oklahoma State, Texas A&M Stick To The Script

If Saturday's game was the end of the series between Oklahoma State and Texas A&M -- the Aggies are headed to the SEC -- it'd be a shame. The Cowboys escaped with a one-point win, but this is a series that has, of late, been about as evenly matched as they come. How close have the games been?

The one game that wasn't so close? A 56-28 win by the Cowboys in 2008. Every set of data has to have an outlier.

Oklahoma State Vs. Texas A&M Final Score: Cowboys Come Back, Win 30-27

Oklahoma State looked all but dead against Texas A&M in the raucous cauldron that is Kyle Field. But Brandon Weeden coolly and calmly dissected the Aggies in the second half, and the Cowboys took advantage of a massive third quarter to come back from a 20-3 halftime deficit and claim an impressive 30-29 win on the road in College Station.

Oklahoma State got 27 consecutive points in the second half to build a 30-20 lead, then staved off Texas A&M's fourth quarter comeback attempt with a pick by James Thomas.

Texas A&M's wounds were largely self-inflicted, and almost totally confined to the second half. After playing a near-perfect first half, the Aggies committed four turnovers in the third quarter, and gave up nearly 300 yards of offense to the Cowboys in that period alone.

That forced A&M away from a running game that was excellent in the first half behind Christine Michael (six carries, 62 yards) and toward a reliance on Ryan Tannehill's arm. Tannehill couldn't come through, completing just 28 of 47 passes and throwing three interceptions.

Weeden, on the other hand? A jaw-dropping 47 completions on 60 attempts, for 437 yards and two touchdowns. Oklahoma State might have saved its national title dreams with its second half, and Weeden may have preserved his Heisman candidacy, too.

Matt Millen Shows Off His Scouting Expertise

Brandon Weeden found Tracy Moore for an acrobatic touchdown in the back of the end zone, giving Matt Millen a chance to drop knowledge on us all. In reference to the touchdown catch, which involved Moore twisting in mid-air and dropping a foot down, Millen had the following to say.

“He’s got great body part awareness.”

Texas A&M Vs. Oklahoma State Score Update: Cowboys Strike Back In Third Quarter

Texas A&M dominated the first half of its game against Oklahoma State. But the Cowboys have roared back in the third quarter, and now lead the Aggies, 24-20.

Oklahoma State made up almost all of a yardage deficit to the Aggies with its first two impressive third quarter drives. Jeremy Smith capped an 11-play, 80-yard possession with a 13-yard touchdown run, and then Brandon Weeden found Justin Blackmon for an 11-yard touchdown pass to cap a 10-play, 89-yard series; sandwiched around Texas A&M's first punt since the first quarter, the scoring drives brought the Cowboys new life.

But momentum wasn't done swinging toward the visitors from Stillwater. Texas A&M's Kenric McNeal coughed up the ball, fumbling for the day's first turnover, giving the Cowboys possession in Aggie territory and more than five more minutes of the third quarter to do something with it.

They did just that, with Weeden threading the needle on a touchdown pass to Tracy Moore that gave the Cowboys their first lead of the day. Suddenly, it's Texas A&M that is in need of an offensive spark.

Texas A&M Vs. Oklahoma State Halftime Score: Aggies Dominant At Home, Lead 20-3

One team is scoring points in Oklahoma State's Big 12 showdown with Texas A&M in College Station. It's just not the squad that came into the game third in the nation in scoring offense: Texas A&M has scored consistently and clamped down on the Cowboys' offense, and leads 20-3 at halftime.

The Aggies got points on four of their five half drives, and tallied 301 total yards, but their success was in slowing down the Cowboys before points became an option. Oklahoma State scored on its first drive, then not again in the first half, as strong third down defense limited the Cowboys to two conversions in seven tries.

That's a good way to make 185 yards of total offense mostly fruitless. Three sacks of Brandon Weeden and blanket coverage on Justin Blackmon helped the Aggies, too. But at least Oklahoma State hasn't committed a turnover yet!

Ryan Tannehill has accounted for 218 yards of total offense so far for A&M.

Texas A&M Vs. Oklahoma State Score: Ryan Tannehill Run Gives Aggies Early Lead

Oklahoma State and Texas A&M were, by all accounts, likely to stage a shootout in College Station. But only the Aggies have put a big number on the scoreboard so far.

Texas A&M quarterback Ryan Tannehill kept the ball on a read option and dashed 65 yards to open the scoring for the Aggies, and the two teams have since traded field goals to make the score 10-3 in A&M's favor near the end of the first quarter.

Neither team has had much luck stopping the other. Texas A&M has 153 yards of total offense, and Oklahoma State has crossed the century mark in yardage, too.
