Big second quarter powers No. 15 Oklahoma St. past West Virginia

LD Brown rushed for 103 yards, including a 66-yard touchdown run that started a 20-point second quarter explosion, to lead No. 15 Oklahoma State to a 27-13 Big 12 Conference win Saturday over West Virginia at Boone Pickens Stadium in Stillwater, Okla.

Chuba Hubbard added 101 yards on 22 attempts, including a game-sealing 23-yard scoring jaunt with 1:17 left. It capped a 15-play, 80-yard march that lasted 7:39.

Freshman quarterback Shane Illingsworth, making his first start for the Cowboys, completed 15 of 21 passes for 139 yards with no touchdowns and an interception. Oklahoma State outrushed the Mountaineers 203-67 and converted 7 of 14 third downs.

Jarret Doege hit on 20 of 37 throws for 285 yards with a touchdown and no interceptions for West Virginia (1-1, 0-1). Leddie Brown added 103 yards on 26 carries.

But the Mountaineers couldn’t cash in two red-zone chances in the second half, settling instead for 26- and 30-yard field goals by Evan Staley.

After a scoreless first quarter, Brown got Oklahoma State on the board just 1:17 into the second quarter with his long touchdown run. He burst through a gaping hole up the middle and sped up the field untouched into the end zone.

The Cowboys’ defense got into the act when Tyren Irby recovered a Doege fumble after a Trace Ford sack and zipped 56 yards for a 14-0 lead at the 11:07 mark. Alex Hale tacked on a 40-yard field goal with 5:02 left in the half for a 17-0 advantage.

West Virginia got on the board just over a minute later. Doege beat a blitz and found Winston Wright with a short pass over the middle. Wright did the rest, turning it into a 70-yard touchdown that sliced the lead to 17-7.

But Oklahoma State added on to its cushion just before halftime as Hale connected from 44 yards out, making it 20-7. A 15-yard face mask penalty, one of many Mountaineer mistakes, help maneuver the Cowboys into position.
