OSU defense keeps making plays
By David Ubben
This has to be seen to be believed.
Oklahoma State's defense has prided itself on making plays when necessary, but today? This is just unbelievable, and morphing into a bit of self-parody even.
To summarize, the defense has:
- Stopped Baylor for no points on five plays inside its 5-yard line
- Intercepted Robert Griffin III in the end zone
- Picked off Griffin again on a tipped ball at its 11-yard line
- Forced a turnover on downs at its 32-yard line
And we're not even done with the first half yet!
Oklahoma State leads 35-0, despite outgaining the Bears just 311-248.
I've never seen anything quite like this defense, which is putting together a unique brand of unbelievable today. It's winning the turnover battle 3-0, but the offense has looked unstoppable, too.
This game got lopsided fast, and it's doing it just the way Oklahoma State hoped it could.
