While Oklahoma State has used quick-strike attacks to counter against Stanford's scoring, the Cardinal continue to milk the clock on long scoring drives. This drive was more than 10 plays and lasted more than five minutes.

The field goal made up for the three points that the Cardinal gave away when Geoff Meinken fumbled the ball on Stanford's own four-yard-line.
