Pokes late rally not enough in loss to Baylor

WACO, Texas — The Bedlam hangover hit the Oklahoma State football team hard on a blustery Saturday against Baylor.

The Cowboys fell behind early and had troubles rallying against the Bears, who topped the Pokes 41-34 at Floyd Casey Stadium.

“When you give up big plays and turn the ball over, you really minimize your chances of winning — especially on the road,” Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy said. “When you play on the road, give up another of big plays, it’s really difficult to come back and win if you are playing a really good team and obviously Baylor is really good on offense. We just never could get over the hump right from the first quarter.”

It was the OSU offense that sparked the early Baylor rally when Clint Chelf threw a pick-six midway through the first quarter for the first touchdown of the game. It sparked a run of three straight touchdowns for the Bears, who led 24-3 before OSU’s first touchdown — a 1-yard J.W. Walsh run at the start of the second quarter.

“I turned around, there was a guy right there and Josh (Stewart) was the guy we were trying to get the ball to and I tried to just spit it out to him,” Chelf said. “I couldn’t really get much behind it and that guy made a good play.”

The Cowboys got the game back to within a touchdown on their last possession before the half, but Baylor responded with an eight-play drive to make it 31-17 at halftime.

Oklahoma State’s defense came out better in the second half, despite being put in a tough situation by the special teams. Baylor took the opening kickoff after halftime 71 yards to the OSU’s 26-yard line. However, the Pokes prevented the Bears from picking up a first down and the kick attempt by Aaron Jones was wide.
