STILLWATER — Without one of its biggest offensive weapons Saturday, Oklahoma State relied on its other two stars and its defense Saturday in a win against TCU. Before the game, Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy confirmed to ESPN that receiver Tylan Wallace was out for the season with a knee injury suffered Wednesday in practice. The Cowboys still seemed to have plenty on offense, though, with quarterback Spencer Sanders and running back Chuba Hubbard. Hubbard cracked the 200-yard barrier for the fourth time this season and had a pair of touchdowns. Sanders was only 9-of-15 passing, but threw for two touchdowns and also ran for more than 80 yards. Both of Sanders' touchdowns went to former Jenks star Dillon Stoner, who had almost 100 yards receiving.
The OSU defense contributed four turnovers, including three interceptions. The Cowboys defense also forced a three-and-out with 4:15 left in the game, as OSU tried to hang onto a 31-24 lead.

First down | Story of the game
OSU defense forces four turnovers Oklahoma State’s defense continued where it left off last week against Iowa State. The defense’s big plays were the difference in the Cowboys’ 34-27 win against TCU on Saturday, as OSU forced four turnovers in the victory. Although the Cowboys converted the four turnovers into only seven points, they were enough to keep TCU from ever gaining momentum and getting a lead. — Dekota Gregory, Tulsa World
Second down | Matchup that mattered
OSU secondary vs. TCU QB Max Duggan Duggan could never find a rhythm Saturday, because every time he seemed to be getting comfortable, the Cowboys would disrupt his complacency. Since Duggan could never find consistency, neither could the TCU offense. OSU intercepted Duggan three times in the game, including two from safety Kolby Harvell-Peel. Duggan threw only one touchdown compared to the three interceptions. — Dekota Gregory, Tulsa World
Third down | Game MVP
S Kolby Harvell-Peel Harvell-Peel played a role in three of OSU’s four turnovers Saturday. He caught two interceptions and jumped on a fumble in the game. Harvell-Peel also tied for the second-most tackles on the team with six total, as well as one pass-breakup. Last week against Iowa State, Harvell-Peel broke the OSU record for most pass-breakups in a game with six. — Dekota Gregory, Tulsa World
Fourth down | What’s next
An off week, then Kansas After a week off, OSU will stay put in Stillwater to host Kansas and former Cowboys coach Les Miles on Nov. 16. KU lost to Kansas State on Saturday after beating Texas Tech the week before. — Dekota Gregory, Tulsa World

First down | Top storyline
Are the Cowboys back on track? The win at No. 23 Iowa State was following two weeks of subpar play by Oklahoma State. The Cowboys looked much better in Ames, especially on defense. Saturday’s game against TCU will give OSU a chance to show it has returned to the team it was at the beginning of the season. — Frank Bonner II, Tulsa World
Second down | Key matchup
OSU run offense vs. TCU run defense The OSU run offense is fifth in the country, averaging more than 263 yards per game while the TCU run defense is ranked No. 15, allowing just 103.7 yards per game. TCU is one of the toughest run defenses OSU has faced all year, and OSU’s Chuba Hubbard is one of the best running backs TCU has faced all year. — Frank Bonner II, Tulsa World
Third down | Player to watch
Chuba Hubbard Heisman candidate Chuba Hubbard leads all running backs with 1,381 rushing yards on the season. He has rushed for 100 yards in six consecutive games. It would be a big blow to the TCU defense if he can get off to a good start early. — Frank Bonner II, Tulsa World
Fourth down | Who wins and Why
Again, Patterson prevails over OSU
From Bill Haisten: During last week’s victory over Texas, the TCU defense pressured Sam Ehlinger into the worst stat line of his career. The Longhorn junior was 22-of-48 passing with four interceptions. TCU coach Gary Patterson brings that defense and a developing freshman quarterback — Max Duggan — who was a difference-maker against Texas and on Saturday makes his sixth start of his rookie season. In 2014 and 2015, when Patterson had the combination of strong defense and Trevone Boykin’s quarterback excellence, the Horned Frogs were 23-3. With Duggan (a former four-star recruit from Iowa) and a defense that ranks 15th nationally against the run, Patterson drives TCU to a 35-34 victory — his third consecutive win over OSU. While the Cowboys did prevail at Iowa State, it’s been exactly two years since they recorded consecutive Big 12 victories. OSU enters this one with uncertainty centering on the st
