STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) — Mike Gundy thought he had resolved his quarterback situation in the offseason and then again after the season opener.
Turns out, the Oklahoma State coach isn't done dealing with a quarterback controversy just yet.
Clint Chelf made a case Saturday for why he should again be the starter, completing 10 of 25 passes for 178 yards with one interception as No. 21 Oklahoma State pulled out a 24-10 win over TCU.
The senior, playing in his final homecoming game, replaced starter J.W. Walsh after the sophomore threw his second interception of the first half, an ill-advised throw into the middle of the end zone.
Chelf responded after having his first pass intercepted and led the Cowboys on back-to-back scoring drives to help them build a 17-0 halftime lead.
TCU (3-4, 1-3) also switched quarterbacks in the second quarter, but it didn't help as the Horned Frogs struggled in their second trip to Stillwater in as many years.
"We felt like we needed a spark on offense and so we made a change and played Clint," Gundy said. "So we'll evaluate our offense this week and our game plan for the next team and decide which direction we want to go."
Josh Stewart added 10 catches for 141 yards and had a 95-yard punt return for a touchdown, giving Oklahoma State enough offense to overcome four turnovers and a pair of missed field goals.
"We doubled him, we played over the top of him and he still found ways to get there," TCU coach Gary Patterson said of Stewart.
Oklahoma State had hoped to get off to a fast start following its second bye week in a month, but other than Stewart, things didn't go well at first.
Stewart did everything he could in the first half, catching eight passes for 106 yards and giving the Cowboys a 7-0 lead with his 95-yard punt return toward the end of the first quarter. He fielded the punt at the 5-yard line, darted across midfield and made several nice cuts on his way to the longest punt return in Oklahoma State history.
Stewart finished with 265 all-purpose yards, with 124 yards coming on punts to go along with his 141 yards receiving. Afterward, Gundy said it would be hard to disagree with the statement that Stewart was the "best player on the field" Saturday.
