The Oklahoma State Cowboys rode their luck just a little against the plucky Kansas State Wildcats in what was a great advertisment for the under pressure Big 12. The Wildcats who had seen their own BSC ambitions destroyed by Oklahoma last week again gave up over 50 points, but instead of laying down like they did last week battled to the last second with QB Collin Klein missing 3 chances to tie the game in the last 12 seconds, all from the Cowboys 5 yard line.
The game was as exciting as the LSU one was drab, and Kansas State actually snatched the lead with just over 5 minutes left, however Oklahoma replied 30 seconds latter with a TD and 2 point conversion to go 7 points up. However the drama was not over as Collin Klein ran in the tying TD with 3.18 left.
The Cowboys then snatched the lead again just outside the 2 minute warning and then held off the Wildcats late desperate drive which failed in the red zone.
What a game over 1000 yards of offense 53 1st downs and 6 turnovers as Brandon Weeden set an OSU passing record with 502 yards passing.
Now OSU have their destiny in their own hands while KSU will at least have a reasonable Bowl game to look forward to from a season which they have contributed much to.
