Loser: Oklahoma State Cowboys (No. 15 to unranked)
No way Oklahoma State would lose to Texas Tech at home after demolishing a ranked Boise State team the week before, right? That’s what I thought going into Week 4, but it didn’t quite pan out that way. The Cowboys weren’t able to slow down the Red Raiders’ offense and they were upended 41-17.
Taylor Cornelius, who had been solid all year in place of Mason Rudolph, had a rough game against a lackluster Red Raiders defense. He was 18-for-38 with 258 yards, a touchdown and an interception.
Oklahoma State has to bounce back from this defeat, but it won’t be easy in a Big 12 that is clearly more difficult than once perceived.
Justice Hill did have a good game, rushing for over 100 yards and averaging more than 9.0 yards per touch. Tylan Wallace had seven catches for 123 yards, remaining red-hot.
The main negative was the defense, allowing over 600 total yards of offense, including nearly 400 through the air.
