Special-teams advantage a huge plus for Cowboys
On its first chance to score points on a special-teams play, Boise State botched a field goal snap and got nothing. Oklahoma State responded with meaningful special-teams plays. There were puntblocks by Amen Ogbongbemiga and Jarrick Bernard. The Cowboys scored a TD after each block. OSU’s Matt Ammendola booted three field goals. The first punt-block led directly to a Taylor Cornelius touchdown, so, in effect, OSU got 23 points from its special teams.
