Sanders throws 2 TD passes, tops No. 11 Oklahoma State WVU

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (NWN) — Spencer Sanders threw two touchdown passes, No. 11 Oklahoma State had eight sacks and the Cowboys beat West Virginia 24-3 on Saturday.

Oklahoma State (8-1, 5-1 Big 12, No. 11 CFP) has seven straight victories over the Mountaineers (4-5, 2-4).

The Cowboys pushed the West Virginia offensive line throughout the game. Devin Harper and Brock Martin had two sacks each for the Cowboys.

West Virginia, which compiled a total of 492 yards in a win over Iowa State last week, was limited to a total of 133 yards on Saturday, including 17 yards on the ground against the Big 12’s top rushing defense.

Both TD passes from Sanders went to Ty Martin in the right corner of the final field in singles coverage.

A rough-the-passer call in third place against Jared Bartlett of West Virginia gave the Cowboys first and goal in the second quarter in 6th place. Sanders found a 6-foot-3 Martin in the end zone in the next game.

West Virginia’s Grayson Malashevich could not coral the third-quarter punt and Oklahoma State’s Corey Black recovered in the climbers’ 26. Four players later, Sanders and Martin took a 17-3 lead for a 12-yard TD.

Sanders finished 21 of 31 for 182 yards. He threw an interception.

Jaylen Warren closed the scoring in the fourth quarter with a 13-yard TD run.

West Virginia went to Oklahoma State 13 on their opening campaign and settled for a field goal. Climbers were often pinned deeply to their end of the field and did not advance into the Oklahoma Territory until their final campaign of the game.

West Virginia’s Jarrett Doedge had little time to get rid of the ball in a falling pocket. Doege, who threw 370 yards and three scores in a win over Iowa State a week earlier, scored 15 of 22 for 109 yards with an interception on Saturday.


Oklahoma State: The track continues toward a potential berth in the Big 12 championship game for the Cowboys, who have allowed a total of 16 touchdowns and league lows of 16 points per game.

West Virginia: The Mountaineers couldn’t take advantage of the vigorous home environment the day College Hall of Fame quarterback Major Harris’s No. 9 jersey was retired. West Virginia saw the winning streak stalled in two games and would need two more wins in the final three games to become Bowl qualified.
