Well...tonight Oklahoma State fans are glad we became bowl eligible last week. They’ll move to exactly .500 at 6-6 on the season. Meanwhile the Horned Frogs got their sixth win and are going bowling.

Oklahoma State went out to an early 3-0 lead in the first quarter. Jalen Reagor would get the Frogs on the board with a six-yard touchdown at the end of the second quarter. You could definitely see that the Cowboys missed Justice Hill tonight. They would end the night with just 99 rushing yards. That would be all of the scoring to occur in the first half and the teams would go into the locker room with a 7-3 score. Because that’s what you would expect out of this game right?

This looked liked a Big 10 game with some great defense in the first half. They were making plays. But again penalties came back to bite the Cowboys on both sides. They would end the game with six penalties for 76 yards.

Then in the third quarter Chuba Hubbard would have a costly fumble on a backwards pass that Jawuan Johnson would take to the end zone to bring the lead to 21-3 for the Frogs.

Then this happened...

That would ultimately be the deciding factor of this game. That touchdown would be part of an awesome night with eight receptions for 91 yards.

Oklahoma State would show some life in the third quarter on a 3-yard run from Chuba Hubbard (finally) and make the score 10-24. Then, the defense missed Darius Davis in the back of the end zone for another Frogs score to make it 31-17 TCU. They would keep trying to comeback when Taylor Cornelius would take it into the end zone himself in the fourth quarter to give us what would be the final score of 31-24 TCU.

Overall TCU played like a team that wanted to get bowl eligible. They got stops when they needed to and got points on the board when it counted. Meanwhile Oklahoma State played well...like they didn’t have anything to play for. Which isn’t necessarily the case.

Next up for Oklahoma State is finding out where they’ll go bowling on Dec.2.
