                    === Oklahoma State routs Texas Tech ===
 
 Stillwater,  OK  (Sports Network) - Clint  Chelf threw for 229 yards and three
 touchdowns,  as  the Oklahoma State Cowboys  punished the No.23 Texas Tech Red
 Raiders, 59-21, on Saturday.
 
 Chelf completed 11-of-21 throws, tossing all three of his touchdowns to Isaiah
 Anderson,  who had four catches for 174 yards for Oklahoma State (7-3, 5-2 Big
 12), which beat the Red Raiders for the fourth straight time.
 
 Joseph  Randle led the Cowboys' rushing attack with 91 yards and a score on 17
 carries,  while  J.W. Walsh ran  for a touchdown and  threw for another in the
 victory.
 
 "Today's game was a very complete game," said Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy.
 "I  mentioned last week that we were good in all three phases of the game, but
 I  think we were better today. We rallied to the ball and forced turnovers. We
 played really well."
 
 Seth  Doege  completed 24-of-36 throws for  230 yards and a touchdown, but had
 two  passes  intercepted. The  Red Raiders  (7-4, 4-4)  fell behind 35-7 after
 giving up 28 straight points in the first half and never recovered.
 
 "We  had our  best practices last week.  I have no problem with the effort and
 how  the  guys go  into each  game and  compete," said  Texas Tech coach Tommy
 Tuberville.  "We're  our own worst  enemy in  a lot of  ways. It's been a long
 eight games, but we'll bounce back."
 
 Darrin  Moore caught a  game-high nine passes for 140 yards and a score. Tyson
 Williams  also hauled in a touchdown on seven catches for 47 yards, while Eric
 Stephens ran for a score in the loss.
 
 The  Cowboys scored  on their first possession of the game, as Walsh connected
 with Kye Staley for a 2-yard score to cap a 12-play, 75-yard opening drive.
 
 On  the first  play of the second  quarter, Texas Tech evened the score at 7-7
 when  Stephens  dove into  the end zone  on a 1-yard  plunge. Two plays prior,
 Doege completed a 57-yard strike to Darrin Moore to put the Red Raiders on the
 Cowboys' 2-yard line.
 
 But  from  there, Oklahoma  State rallied  off 28  unanswered points and never
 looked back.
 
 On  the fourth play  of the Cowboys' ensuing drive, Chelf found Anderson for a
 60-yard   score,  and   after  Gary   Shamiel  picked   off  Doege   on  Texas
 Tech's next touch, Chelf again found Anderson, this time for a 33-yard score.
 
 The  Red  Raiders made matters  even worse for themselves following Anderson's
 second  TD catch. After  failing to pick up a first down, Ryan Erxleben's punt
 was blocked by Teddy Johnson, allowing the Cowboys to begin their drive on the
 Texas Tech 24.
 
 Oklahoma State needed just four plays to reach the end zone yet again. On 3rd-
 and-9,  Chelf  scrambled for 21  yards before Walsh punched  it in on a 2-yard
 rush, giving the Cowboys a 21-point advantage.
 
 Texas  Tech  once again  went three-and-out  and was forced  to punt away. The
 Cowboys  wasted  no time  in scoring  again, as Chelf  hooked up with Anderson
 for  a  66-yard TD on  the first play of  the series, pushing Oklahoma State's
 advantage to 35-7 with 6:18 left in the half.
 
 The Red Raiders finally got back on the board just before halftime. They drove
 95  yards  on 13 plays to  reach the end  zone, as Doege completed 10 straight
 throws  on the  march, his  last to  Williams for  a 2-yard  score to  cut the
 deficit to 35-14 with 15 seconds remaining in the second quarter.
 
 But  Texas  Tech couldn't carry the  momentum into the third quarter, as Doege
 was intercepted by James Castleman on the first drive of the second half.
 
 Off  the turnover, Oklahoma State got into the end zone for the sixth time, as
 Jeremy Smith scored on a 17-yard rush to make it 42-14.
 
 Quinn Sharp drilled a 51-yard field goal on the Cowboys' next touch, extending
 their advantage to 31 with 6:22 remaining in the third.
 
 After  recovering  a fumble  deep inside Texas  Tech territory, Oklahoma State
 continued  to pour it  on. Randle twice rushed for gains of 11 yards before he
 scored on a 1-yard plunge with 17 seconds remaining in the third.
 
 Oklahoma  State scored its final touchdown after blocking their second punt of
 the  game.  Zack Craig  got his hand  on it  and returned it  30 yards for the
 score, making it 59-14 with 12:35 to go.
 
 Back-up  quarterback Michael Brewer led the Red Raiders on a 12-play touchdown
 drive in garbage time, finding Moore for a 7-yard score with 2:51 to play.
 
 
                                   Game Notes
 
 The  last time  Oklahoma State  defeated Texas  Tech four  straight times  was
 between  1942 and  1945 ...  Tuberville fell  to 0-3  against the  Cowboys ...
 Oklahoma  State  will face  the Oklahoma  Sooners next  week, while Texas Tech
 will conclude  its regular  season  at home  against Baylor.
