Defense, special teams drive OSU to a big win
Entering a Saturday collision at Boone Pickens Stadium, Oklahoma State was No. 1 nationally in total offense and Boise State was No. 4. Instead of a fireworks show, however, there was a strong defensive performance by the Cowboys and two huge special-teams plays. OSU blocked two Boise State punts, and on each occasion the Cowboys capitalized with touchdowns. Those TDs were significant as OSU won 44-21.
