Chuba Hubbard ran for 223 yards and two touchdowns to lead Oklahoma State to a 34-27 win over TCU on Saturday for the Cowboys to become bowl eligible for the 14th straight season.

Hubabrd, the nation’s leading rusher, picked up the pace in the second half with 192 yards with 92 on a blazing touchdown run for OSU (6-3, 3-3 Big 12). It was Hubbard’s fourth 200-yard game of the season.

With Big 12 leading wide receiver Tylan Wallace out for season with an ACL tear, Dillion Stoner stepped up with three catches for 93 yards and two touchdowns on the day from 57 and 22 yards. The second one featured a great ball from Spencer Sanders and an even better catch from Stoner.

Sanders was 9 for 15 for 158 yards and one interception. He also ran for 88 yards.

OSU’s defense had another good week with five sacks for 24 yards and forced three interceptions for Max Duggan. Malcom Rodriguez continued his fantastic stretch with eight tackles. Kolby Harvell-Peel led OSU’s defense in stealth mode with two interceptions and a fumble recovery. He also had six tackles and a couple pass break ups.

Despite the defense forcing four turnovers, the offense didn't score any points from them.

TCU wide out Jalen Reagor hauled in 128 yards on seven catches, but never brought it to the house. OSU has struggled against the run, but were able to keep Darious Anderson to only 55 yards.

Matt Ammendola missed his first field goal of the season, and was 2 for 3 and 4 of 4 on extra points.
