Another Robinson-to-Bryant TD boosts OSU lead
Posted by ESPN.com's Tim Griffin
STILLWATER, Okla. -- Dez Bryant has been relatively quiet today.
But the Oklahoma State wide receiver's catches have been daggers to Georgia defensive coordinator Willie Martinez.
Bryant's 12-yard TD snag from Zac Robinson -- only his third reception of the game -- help extend Oklahoma State's lead to 24-10 with 7:59 left in the game.
Oklahoma State's scoring drive was extended by a crucial personal foul by Georgia strong safety Reshad Jones, who was flagged for a head-to-head hit on Justin Blackmon.
Three plays later, Robinson and Bryant hooked up for the All-American's first reception since late in the first half.
The score came after another critical turnover by Georgia as Joe Cox fumbled. It was the second time the Bulldogs have fumbled inside their own 32. Oklahoma State has turned those miscues into 10 points.
The story of the game has been Bill Young's defensive plan against Georgia. After allowing a touchdown on the Bulldogs' first drive, the Bulldogs have been limited to three points.
The Cowboys' defense was presumed to be its biggest weakness heading into the season. But today, it's been the Cowboys' most consistent element.
