STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) - Oklahoma State was seemingly an afterthought in the Big 12 Conference championship race following a shocking loss to West Virginia on Sept. 28.
The No. 7 Cowboys (10-1, 7-1 Big 12) are an afterthought no more after a 49-17 win over previously undefeated Baylor on Saturday night.
Led by senior quarterback Clint Chelf's career-high 370 yards passing, Oklahoma State easily dispatched the No. 9 Bears (9-1, 6-1) - earning the schools' seventh straight win.
The Cowboys can now win their second Big 12 championship in three seasons with a win over rival Oklahoma in two weeks in Stillwater.
Baylor, meanwhile, has to hope for an Oklahoma State loss to keep its conference championship hopes alive - a far cry from the national-title aspirations it had before Saturday.
