OSU does part to set up showdown with Texas

Even without Dez Bryant and Kendall Hunter, Oklahoma State's Zac Robinson continues playing like the most consistent quarterback in the South Division.
Robinson set a school record for single-game completion percentage, hitting 23-of-27 passes for 250 yards and three touchdowns to lead the Cowboys to a resounding 34-7 victory over Baylor.
The win enables the Cowboys to remain unbeaten in the South Division. If Texas wins later tonight against Missouri, it would set up a showdown for first place in the South Division next week in Stillwater.
Keith Toston rushed for 109 yards and Beau Johnson added 93 for an OSU rushing attack that is doing fine without Bryant. The Cowboys piled up 195 rushing yards, 446 total yards and dominated the game from the beginning. Hubert Anyiam grabbed nine receptions and eight other OSU receiver had catches as Bryant didn't play again.
But it didn't matter as Robinson's 85 percent completion percentage broke the former single-game record of his coach Mike Gundy, who completed 77 percent of his passes against Kansas in 1989.
