Tech couldn’t respond and followed that by going three-and-out, with Craig rushing in to block Ryan Erxleben’s punt and keep Oklahoma State’s roll going. J.W. Walsh finished the ensuing drive with a 2-yard TD run on a quarterback keeper, and Chelf threw a 66-yard touchdown pass to Anderson on the first play after another Red Raiders three-and-out.
“No excuses. We didn’t execute,” Tuberville said. “But it didn’t help us with our young inside guys, having to play those guys. They were trying to get everybody lined up and call the right front and making the calls and getting them on the right guys.”
Chelf passed for 229 yards in his second career start. Walsh, who had what coach Mike Gundy called a season-ending injury four weeks ago, ran for one touchdown and threw for another out of a short-yardage package.
