Brandon Weeden passed for 409 yards and Kendall Hunter had two rushing touchdowns as No. 12 Oklahoma State ended a 12-year losing streak to Texas with a 33-16 victory Saturday night.

The win keeps surging Oklahoma State (9-1, 5-1) in first place in the Big 12 South with two games to play. The Cowboys have never won the division.

Hunter ran for 116 yards. Justin Blackmon had 145 yards receiving for the Cowboys, including a 67-yard touchdown catch in the second quarter, his 16th of the season, the most in the nation.

The loss is just the latest home defeat for the reeling Longhorns (4-6, 2-5) who have lost six of their last seven games — four straight at home — just one season after playing for the national championship.

Texas must win its last two games to avoid its first losing season since 1997 and qualify for a bowl game.
