And whenever Tech attempted to rally back, OSU had the answer.

After the Red Raiders cut the Cowboys’ halftime lead to 28-24, OSU created distance on their second drive out of the locker room. Following a 46-yard punt return by Stewart, OSU converted its second fourth down inside the 5 into a touchdown, with Roland getting into the end zone from three yards out. Then came Chelf’s 67-yard sprint through the middle of the Red Raider defense on the Cowboys’ next possession.

Then when Tech turned a Chelf interception into an Amaro one-yard touchdown that trimmed the gap to 42-31 late in the third quarter, OSU put together a nine-play, 75-yard drive that was capped by an eight-yard touchdown run by Chelf to essentially put the game out of reach.

It’s taken us more than half the season to get to this point. OSU’s offense has been disjointed much of the season, with multiple examples of in-game quarterback switches, offensive line shuffles and stuffed running backs.

But last week against Iowa State, the running game appeared to turn a corner, with Roland busting out for 219 yards and four scores behind an offensive line combination that began to gel. Saturday, a passing game was added to the mix, with Chelf going the distance in a game where coach Mike Gundy said Walsh could also play.

Just in time for the start of the key home stretch for the Cowboys.

“We’ve got a chance,” Gundy said. “We’re not good enough to look past the next game.”
