COLUMBIA, Mo. - Oklahoma State stopped a Missouri offense
that had been scoring at will all season, intercepting Chase Daniel
three times in the second half and upsetting the third-ranked
Tigers 28-23 victory on Saturday night.
Zac Robinson and Damian Davis hooked up on a pair of long scores
in the second half, and Patrick Lavine's interception at the
Oklahoma State 31 with 1:41 to go was the clincher. Missouri (5-1,
1-1 Big 12) had appeared poised to challenge for No. 1 with a
strong effort after top-ranked Oklahoma lost to Texas and No. 2
Alabama had the weekend off.
Instead, it was the coming-out party for the Cowboys (6-0, 2-0
Big 12). Oklahoma State, only 18-19 in coach Mike Gundy's first
three seasons, is 6-0 for only the second time since 1945.
