No. 11 Oklahoma State crushes No. 3 Baylor
Stillwater, OK (SportsNetwork.com) - Oklahoma State likely shattered Baylor's National Championship hopes Saturday night as the 11th-ranked Cowboys throttled the third-ranked Bears, 49-17, at Boone Pickens Stadium.
Clint Chelf completed 19-of-25 passes for 370 yards and two touchdowns and Kye Staley added a pair of rushing scores for the Cowboys (10-1, 7-1 Big 12), who have rattled off seven straight wins since falling to West Virginia on Sept. 28.
Chelf also had a 48-yard reception and Tracy Moore finished with five catches for 126 yards and a touchdown.
Oklahoma State, which beat then-nationally ranked Texas on Nov. 16, now has the inside track to the Big 12 crown and will need either a win over No. 22 Oklahoma on Dec. 7 or a Baylor loss to either TCU or Texas to claim the conference's automatic BCS Bowl bid.
Heisman candidate Bryce Petty completed just 28-of-48 passes for 359 yards and two touchdowns for the Bears (9-1, 6-1), who had won 13 straight games dating back to last season.
Shock Linwodd, starting in place of an injured Lache Seastrunk, rushed for just 29 yards on 14 carries and fumbled twice in the setback.
