The senior wideout entered the game with just eight career touchdown grabs. Moore totaled four TDs a year ago, his best season as a Cowboy.

CHALLENGING SITUATION BENEFITS OSU

During his tenure as head coach, Mike Gundy hasn't been known to challenge many official calls.

Gundy did against the Wildcats — and won.

Noticing that Arizona substituted late with the Cowboys playing in fast-tempo mode, Gundy took the opportunity to challenge, sending a review to the replay booth with a timeout at stake.

The booth official confirmed Gundy's claim, resulting in a 5-yard penalty that wiped out four-yard loss and kept a touchdown drive alive.

LUNT SETS RECORDS

In just his second game as a Cowboy, Lunt set freshman single-game passing records for yards (436) and completions (37) and tied the overall school record for attempts (60) in a game.

Lunt broke Aso Pogi's record of 328 yards set against Iowa State in 2000. Pogi was a redshirt freshman when he completed 26 of 45 attempts against the Cyclones.

Lunt also broke the true freshman yardage record of 275 set by Gundy in 1986 against Kansas.

His 60 throws tied Brandon Weeden's 60 attempts against Texas A&M last year.

SCOUTING AHEAD: LOUISIANA-LAFAYETTE

OSU returns to Boone Pickens Stadium on Saturday to face Louisiana-Lafayette in an 11 a.m. kickoff.

ULL improved to 2-0 Saturday with a 37-24 win over Troy, despite losing quarterback Blaine Gautier to a first quarter rib injury. Terrance Broadway stepped in to lead the win, throwing for 143 yards and a touchdown.

Alonzo Harris ran for 137 yards and a score.

The Ragin' Cajuns, who lost at OSU a year ago, finished 9-4 and won the New Orleans Bowl.

EXTRA POINTS

* Cowboys backup linebacker Lyndell Johnson missed the game with an apparent ankle injury suffered during pregame warmup. Johnson wore a protective boot and was on the sideline in street clothes, using crutches.

* Arizona's 59 points scored were its most since 2008.

* Lunt completed his first pass of the night, then had his career-opening streak of completions ended there — at 12 — when he misfired on his next throw. Lunt went 11-for-11 against Savannah State.

* Fiesta Bowl officials attended the game, including executive director Robert Shelton.
