The Oklahoma State had a lot to prove after a disappointing loss to Texas last week. The Cowboys defeated #24 Kansas State 26-13 at home in convincing fashion in a game that also included a 75 minute weather delay.
The score appears closer than the game actually seemed with OSU controlling the contest from the outset. Oklahoma State played with four men on the defensive line for most of the game which was a pleasant defensive change from a week ago.
The Cowboys go on the road against Texas Tech State next week.
