The Oklahoma State Cowboys roll over the Purdue Boilermakers Tuesday in the Heart of Dallas Bowl 58-14. The OSU offense stalled with a 3 & out on their first series, but the woke up after Purdue converted on a fake punt from their own 13-yard line.
OSU dominated their Big 10 opponent behind bowl MVP Clint Chelf. The Enid native was 17-22 for 197-yards and three touchdowns. The once third string quarterback had command of the offense and at the half lead 28-0. " It's a symbol of the guys around me." OSU Quarterback Clint Chelf said, "Offensive line played well today, defensive receivers, good punt return, defense kept giving us a short field. We tried to capitalize on that. Coach Gundy called some good plays, and we just tried to execute."
The Cowboys defense got things started after the break. Daytanion Lowe returns a fumble 37-yards for the score and the blow out was on. Oklahoma State led 35-0. The Pokes defense was very opportunistic. They forced five turnovers against Purdue. They had three fumble recoveries and two interceptions.
OSU was up 45-0 before the Boilermakers finally got on the board. Robert Marve found Brandon Cottom right before the end of the 3rd quarter. The 32-yard touchdown made it 45-7 Cowboys.
This is the third straight bowl victory for Oklahoma State.
Coach Gundy kind of alluded that Chefl will be the guy when spring ball begins. " Clint has finished the year strong. We're going to work our quarterbacks just like we would any other position. But when we start out in the spring, and they go running out there, Clint is going to go running out there just like he did today."
