OSU wearing out tiring Cougars

STILLWATER, Okla. -- Oklahoma State's offensive line is taking control as strong protection has helped the Cowboys reclaim the lead.
Zac Robinson hooked up with Josh Cooper on a 22-yard TD pass that gave the Cowboys a 35-31 lead with 11:22 left in the game.
Robinson exploited the gasping Cougars as he hooked up with three other receivers other than Dez Bryant on the scoring drive.
Houston had taken the lead on the ensuing drive on a short 33-yard, seven-play scoring drive capped by a fourth-down 1-yard scoring plunge by Bryce Beall.
Now, it will be up to the Cowboys' defense to put the game away.
They've played better in the second half, but Houston quarterback Case Keenum has exploited the Cowboys.
Considering the way that both offenses and both defenses are playing, I'm getting the idea that the last team to have the ball might end up winning this wild game.
