The OK-State quarterback totaled 284 yards with 41 of them on the ground, helping his team improve to 3-0 on the season. Tylan Wallace also had a big day on offense, catching five passes for 105 yards in the Cowboys' third consecutive home win to begin the season.
The big day for the Cowboys helped overcome Brett Rypien big day for the Broncos, as the quarterback finished with 380 yards and three touchdowns in the air. This loss may knock Boise State right out of the top 25, as this was one of their very few chances to prove themselves against a quality opponent. They were held to 34 yards on 31 carries as a team in their first loss of the season.
The Cowboys will definitely move up in the new polls as they get ready to host Texas Tech. Meanwhile, Boise State will visit Wyoming next week.
Elsewhere, in a major rivalry game, the Texas Longhorns may have done enough to enter the Top 25 rankings when the new polls come out on Sunday. The Longhorns earned the program's 900th win as they upset No. 22 USC with ease, 37-14, at home. Sam Ehlinger threw for two touchdowns, while Anthony Wheeler returned a blocked field goal 46 yards for a score in the team's biggest win under second-year head coach Tom Herman.
Ehlinger threw for 223 yards and did not turn the ball over, helping his team rally from a 14-3 first-quarter deficit. From there, they would score 34 unanswered points, including 21 in the third quarter, earning their second home win of the season. The victory also improves Herman to 9-7 as the Longhorns head coach, as his quarterback found Lil'Jordan Humphrey and Joshua Moore in the end zone for his two scores.
The loss for the Trojans drops them to 1-2 on the season and will almost definitely knock them out of the Top 25 before next week. J.T. Daniels threw for 322 yards on the night, but his team was held to -5 yards on the ground. They will play host to Washington State on Friday night. Meanwhile, the Longhorns will play host to the TCU Horned Frogs on Saturday.
