STILLWATER, Okla. -- Houston cornerback Jamal Robinson's 26-yard interception return for a touchdown to have clinched a wild upset victory for Houston over No. 5 Oklahoma State.

The Cougars have a 45-35 lead and should be in good shape, considering the Cowboys have to score twice to earn the comeback.

Robinson's interception came after Zac Robinson's pass glanced off the hands of receiver Dez Bryant before falling into the Houston defender's hands.

It marked the fourth turnover of the game for the Cowboys after three earlier fumbles.

They appeared to have momentum after forcing a punt before Robinson's clutch interception.

Even worse for the Cowboys, Bryant has been sidelined with cramps.

Without Bryant and leading rusher Kendall Hunter, it will be difficult for the Cowboys to claim a wild comeback after already charging back from a 17-point deficit earlier in the game.
