Oklahoma State-West Virginia: Official Game Thread

Zach Lancaster

STILLWATER -- Both Oklahoma State and West Virginia cleared COVID-19 protocol on Friday and the Big 12 opener for both teams is finally here!

The Cowboys are wearing all-white 1987 throwback uniforms to honor Cowboy great Thurman Thomas, who's the first induction into Oklahoma State football's Ring of Honor.

The big question going into this game for Oklahoma State is at offensive line and quarterback. Quarterback Spencer Sanders left the game against Tulsa at the end of the first quarter with a lower leg injury. On the offensive line, Charlie Dickey lost guard Cole Birmingham and tackle Hunter Anthony.

Spencer is a game-time decision, though he is dressed out and went through pregame warmups.

PREGAME

Oklahoma State is making their way to the field!

The Cowboys win the toss and will be kicking off to start the game.

Cowboy defense forces a second-straight Mountaineer punt on an impressive 3rd and long stop! Illingworth leading the Cowboys back on the field after the timeout.

Punt: 4th and 2 and the Cowboys elect to punt. Crowd wasn't happy, but it was easily one of the best punts of Tom Hutton's short OSU career as he pins WVU back on the five yard line.

TURNOVER ON DOWNS! West Virginia bobbled the snap on a field goal attempt and the Cowboys take over their own 30 yard line!

FIELD GOAL! Alex Hale knocks home a 40-yard field goal to extend Oklahoma State's lead (5:02) Oklahoma State leads 17-0!

Touchdown: WVU's Doege hits Wright for a 70-yard touchdown (3:48) Oklahoma State leads 17-7

Cowboy defense on the field to start the game. Let's see if they can carry over their success against Tulsa.

Big stop on third and long there for the Pokes.

That was an impressive start for Illingworth connecting with Dillon Stoner deep down the field. The play is under review as the refs say the ball hit the turf.

Call confirmed, no catch. 2nd and 10 from the OSU 25.

Weren't able to pick up the first down, but that was a decent start for Illingworth.

Not bad, much closer to being in a rhythm than the ‘Eers. D will get the stop & ball back

WVU's running game is starting to heat up on this drive. The offsides penalty certainly didn't help.

That's one of the best plays from Rodarius Williams on that last play. Also, what a hit by Devin Harper.

The defense came up huge there on 3rd and long. Cameron Murray with the stop to force another WVU punt.

Time to chip & grind down the field, and set up the medium-long ball

They need to try and get the run game going. OSU needs Chuba to be good this season.

Impressive connection from Illingworth to Wallace on 3rd and long. Free play as WVU jumped offsides and the Pokes made the most of it.

LD Brown is absolutely making the most of his senior season in Stillwater. He's been so impressive this year.

Man, Doege is taking some shots this afternoon. Also, great job by Williams on the outside.

Those hits that Doege is getting punished with is starting to affect his decision-making, looks like he’s starting to rush to get the ball away. I feel a pick or two coming in this game

Wow. After the past 3-4 years of underperforming special teams, who’da thunk our special teams would be shining like the past 2 weeks?

It's rather bizarre to see good specials teams play from the Pokes, but man it's fun to watch.

That was a bad look for there, but the Cowboys have been giving up the big play all day and it finally bit them on that score.

Cowboys defense needs to come up with a big stop here to go into halftime with a 10-point lead.

With :16 left in the first half, can Illingworth find a way to get the Pokes into the endzone?

Nope, Alex Hale out for the field goal.

Good defensive stop there for the Cowboys forcing yet another WVU punt. Need the offense to produce something on this drive.

Great pick up there by Chuba. Able to get some good yardage by bouncing it outside the right side. Milking the clock and moving the ball.

The offense has stalled out to start the second half, but the defense is remaining strong. Hopefully that allows Illingworth and Dunn to figure it out in the upcoming drive.

Oh boy, Illingworth throws his first interception in his short career. WVU takes over 1st and 10 from the OSU 42

That's a rough way to start the fourth quarter for the Pokes. 4th and long and Tom Hutton boots one down the field. WVU takes over 1st and 10 from the OSU 32-yard line.

The offense is really struggling here. Dunn and Gundy need to figure out how to get them going.

Feels like WVU is dig-routing is to death, like we should be doing to them

That slant pass has been there all day for Doege. But Rodarius Williams comes up with a huge third down stop there to force a FG.

WOW, what a great catch there by Tylan. Play is under review.
