STILLWATER, Okla. -- Curtis Brown provided some cushion for Texas with a 77-yard pass interception return for a touchdown, extending Texas' lead to 17-0 over Oklahoma State with 6:21 left in the second quarter.
Brown jumped in front of a Zac Robinson pass intended for Dameron Fooks and raced untouched for a touchdown.
On the previous play, Kendall Hunter returned to action for the first time for a 1-yard gain. But Brown's interception snuffed out what momentum the Cowboys have generated.
It's the eighth non-offensive touchdown the Longhorns have scored this season. Texas has now returned two punts, four kickoffs and two interceptions for touchdowns this season.
