Misery loves company, and there was plenty of it in Week 8

The wear and tear of the season is starting to show. We saw a middle-finger salute from Tennessee, an ill-tempered Jimbo Fisher, another near-miss for Texas and prime-time clunkers for USC and Michigan.

Despite an ugly offensive performance, No. 10 Oklahoma State keeps their Big 12 championship game and College Football Playoff hopes alive with a 13-10 overtime win at Texas. Defensive back Ramon Richards intercepted an errant Sam Ehlinger pass in overtime to seal the victory, a game in which the Cowboys scored just one touchdown and went 12 consecutive drives without a touchdown.

Oklahoma State and Texas heading to overtime. The Longhorns are the only FBS team to play multiple overtime games this season, according to ESPN Stats and Information. The Longhorns are 1-1 in overtime, losing 27-24 at USC and defeating Kansas State 40-34 at home two weeks ago.

Sam Khan Jr. ESPN Staff Writer 

Texas has 40 rushing yards on 30 carries so far today, a big reason the Longhorns have struggled offensively and a consistent theme this season. Chris Warren leads the team with 33 yards on 12 carries.

Oklahoma State, owners of the nation's No. 2 scoring offense before today, has now gone nine consecutive drives without a touchdown. That's the longest such drought in a game since the Cowboys' loss to Ole Miss in the 2016 Sugar Bowl, when they had nine straight TD-less drives to start that game.

Rudolph's 66-yard pass puts Oklahoma State in the red zone (0:34)

Texas has held Oklahoma State without a touchdown for eight consecutive drives. That's an impressive stretch against a unit that ranked No. 1 in yardage and No. 2 in scoring coming into today's game. That's the longest such drought for the Cowboys this season.

Oklahoma State is still without a passing touchdown today vs. Texas. The Cowboys have lost the last five games in which they have failed to do so, according to ESPN Stats and Information (last such win came in 2013 vs. TCU).

Sam Khan Jr. ESPN Staff Writer 

Oklahoma State has the nation's longest active streak of games with 20-plus points. The Cowboys have scored at least 20 in 35 consecutive games.

Sam Khan Jr. ESPN Staff Writer 

Oklahoma State quarterback Mason Rudolph has thrown for at least 300 yards in seven consecutive games, the longest such active streak nationally. Through three quarters vs. Texas, Rudolph has only 165 passing yards, putting that streak in danger.

Sam Khan Jr. ESPN Staff Writer 

Oklahoma State receiver Jalen McCleskey, who entered Saturday's game against Texas with no drops this season, chose a bad time to have his first. McCleskey dropped a third-down pass at the Texas 15 that would have been a first down and possibly a touchdown late in the third quarter.

Texas with consecutive defensive stops to open up the second half but the second one was nullified by a illegal substitution penalty. The Longhorns had 12 men on the field on the punt return formation with Oklahoma State facing 4th-and-2. Cowboys' offense back on the field.

Sam Khan Jr. ESPN Staff Writer 

Oklahoma State receivers James Washington and Marcell Ateman have each recorded 100-yard receiving outings for four straight games. That streak is in jeopardy for both as neither has reached 40 receiving yards yet, midway through the third quarter vs. Texas.

Herman happy they're keeping Oklahoma State out of the end zone (0:32)

Sam Khan Jr. ESPN Staff Writer 

No. 10 Oklahoma State moved the ball much better than Texas in the first half (15 first downs to 7) but is tied with the Longhorns 7-7 at the midpoint thanks in part to an empty red zone trip (a fumble that later resulted in a Texas touchdown).

play
Ehlinger sacked for 34-yard loss (0:41)

Sam Khan Jr. ESPN Staff Writer 

Was he in or out? Texas receiver John Burt tightrope-walked the sideline on a 90-yard reception and it was difficult to tell on replay whether or not he stepped out of bounds. The Longhorns snapped the ball before a replay review could be called for and QB Sam Ehlinger scored on the next play. That could wind up being a key sequence if this game is close late.

Sam Khan Jr. ESPN Staff Writer 

Texas defensive tackle Poona Ford has been disruptive early on, getting penetration on Oklahoma State's interior defensive line. He forced a key fumble early in the second quarter of that killed a potential Cowboy scoring drive and turned into 7 Longhorns' points.
