No. 24 Oklahoma State 44, No. 17 Boise State 21

Coach Mike Gundy's program has long been known for its high-powered offenses. But against Boise State, the Cowboys landed a huge victory behind spectacular special teams and tenacious defense. For the first time since 2012, Oklahoma State blocked two punts, the first leading to a Cowboys touchdown three plays later; the second, Za'Carrius Green returned 17 yards for a backbreaking touchdown late in the third quarter. Defensively, the Cowboys sacked quarterback Brett Rypien seven times and eliminated Alexander Mattison and the Boise running game. In what was supposed to be a rebuilding year, the Cowboys are now 3-0 and should be ranked in the top 20 next week. They also could be favored in every game leading up to Nov. 10, when they travel to Norman for Bedlam. -- Jake Trotter
