STILLWATER , OK- The last time Iowa State won at Oklahoma State, 2000.  That losing streak continued on Saturday as the Cyclones fell to the Cowboys 37-20.

The game was tied at 6 with under a minute left before half when the flood gates opened.

On the last play of the first half the Iowa State defense looked to have stopped Oklahoma St. running back Desmond Roland short of the goal line.  The call on the field was no touchdown.  The refs decided to review the call,  it was overturned to a touchdown.  The call was a controversial overturn, as many of the announcers thought it should not have been a touchdown.

It was all downhill after that for the Cyclones.  Oklahoma State returned the opening kickoff of the 2nd half 97 yards for a TD en route to a 37-20 Cowboy victory.  Sam Richardson threw for 200 yards and 2 TD’s while EJ Bibbs caught 2 TD passes in the loss.

After the game ISU Athletic Director Jamie Pollard addressed the media about the controversial call, as well as Big 12 officiating.

Cyclones.TV was at the postgame press conference and has a link to the Pollard statement. 

Iowa State falls to 1-4 on the season and host Toledo next week in a non-conference game.
