Oklahoma State Vs. Arizona: Upset Looms As Cowboys Trail 23-14 At The Half

No. 18 Oklahoma State is in danger of being upset by the Arizona Wildcats on Saturday night, with the Cowboys trailing 23-14 at the half.

The Cowboys opened the scoring on the first drive of the game with a Wes Lunt 9-yard touchdown pass to Tracy Moore. They would later take a 14-0 lead just a few minutes later on another Lunt to Moore connection. It seemed as if the rout was on, but Arizona would respond, scoring 23 unanswered points as the Cowboys offense suddenly lost its way.

Lunt is 12-of-20 for 110 and two touchdowns, as well as an interception thrown late in the half inside Arizona territory. Oklahoma State was also undone by penalties (seven in the first half) and costly turnovers that allowed Arizona to take control of the game.

The Cowboys have struggled to contain Arizona quarterback Matt Scott, who is 17-of-25 for 198 yards and a touchdown in the first half, with the Wildcats adding 84 yards on the ground.

Arizona will receive the ball after the half.
