(STILLWATER, Okla - Nov. 7, 2016) – Following a 43-37 comeback victory over Kansas State, the Oklahoma State football team jumped to No. 17 in the Associated Press and Amway Coaches polls on Sunday afternoon.
Led by Mason Rudolph’s 457 yards and five touchdown passes, along with a 117-yard, two-touchdown day from wide receiver James Washington, the Cowboys came back from trailing by nine in the fourth quarter to pick up their seventh win of the season.
The victory marked the Cowboys' sixth win in their last eight meetings with the Wildcats, their first win in Manhattan since 2010 and just the second since 1988 when Mike Gundy quarterbacked the Cowboys to a victory.
Oklahoma State is one of four schools to appear in the both polls, including No. 9/9 Oklahoma, No. 11/10 West Virginia and No. 25/25 Baylor.
The Cowboys return home the Saturday for a showdown with Texas Tech at Boone Pickens Stadium. Kickoff is scheduled for 2:30 p.m. on Fox Sports 1.
