‘Pick’ me up
OSU took a 49-42 lead with 3:47 remaining, yet all who watch the Cowboys expect drama to the end. And drama they got, with the Cyclones marching from their own 13 to the OSU 4 inside the final minute. On second-and-goal from the 4, Noland lobbed a throw right for Marchie Murdock in the back corner of the end zone. Yet with Murdock draped on his back, Cowboys cornerback A.J. Green rose up for the interception, before Murdock grabbed a share of the ball as they both crashed to the ground. Review confirmed the interception, sealing the win. Murdock quickly took to Twitter: “I WAS ROBBED”
OSU’s Chad Whitener (45) runs to celebrate as A.J. Green comes down with the game-clinching interception on Saturday. Green out-wrestled Iowa State’s Marchie Murdock for the interception.
