Momentum swinging wildly in Columbia

This is the type of game that's frustrating for both sides.

Missouri, with an untimely fumble, feels the game could be much closer. Oklahoma State, with an ugly interception and a parade of dropped passes, feels the score could be much more lopsided.

Late in the third quarter, Oklahoma State leads 38-17 after Joseph Randle snatched momentum back with a 59-yard touchdown run for his third score of the day.

OSU looked like it would put the Tigers out on the previous drive, but E.J. Gaines picked off Brandon Weeden in the end zone and returned it to midfield. Missouri threatened, but James Franklin fumbled, giving way to OSU's answer.

Surely it's frustrating for both sides.

Oklahoma State's high-powered offense gives it a little more leeway to make mistakes, but Franklin already has two turnovers in the second half and a fumble recovered by Missouri. Now, after those mistakes, it may be up to Franklin's arm to try to bring Mizzou back within striking distance.
