Continuing to count down the top 13 moments of the Oklahoma State football season.

10. Josh Stewart’s last hurrah

(last play in this montage)

The Cowboys’ shifty slot receiver — who has since left OSU early for the NFL — made a big impact in his final game in the Cotton Bowl, catching this pass down the middle, putting a couple cuts in the open field and finishing with a stiff arm just before crossing the goal line for the 40-yard touchdown.

Perhaps making the play more impressive? Stewart still had a heavily taped left ankle and a clunky brace on his right knee.

Stewart finished 2013 with a team-best 60 catches for 703 yards and three scores.

9. Bedlam’s final offensive drive

 

This series of plays also came in defeat. But after struggling for much of Bedlam, the Cowboy offense finally found rhythm, putting together a 7-play, 89-yard drive in 2:41 to take a 24-20 lead over Oklahoma with less than two minutes to play.

It sure looked like the game-winning drive at the time, until the normally stout OSU defense couldn’t fend off Blake Bell’s heroics.

The drive featured four straight completions from Clint Chelf to Stewart (14 yards), Charlie Moore (27 yards), Tracy Moore (20 yards) and Tracy Moore again (23 yards). Then Desmond Roland finished the job with three consecutive runs, including the 1-yarder into the end zone.

8. Tyler Johnson follows his blockers

(6:25 mark)

The Cowboys found all kinds of ways to score in 2013, but this was perhaps the most entertaining.

With OSU already rolling in Ames, Johnson scooped up a loose ball stripped free by Joe Mitchell and started rumbling down the sideline. He followed his blockers — most notably, one from reserve cornerback Ashton Lampkin — before falling into the end zone.

It was OSU’s second defensive touchdown of the game, joining a Justin Gilbert pick-six.

Here’s the rest of the countdown:
