FORT WORTH, TEXAS -- It looks starkly different from the Big 12 game that happened last night.

Midway through the third quarter, the Oklahoma State football team trails Texas Christian University 21-3 at Amon G. Carter Stadium. Unlike the battle of high-powered offenses in which Oklahoma defeated West Virginia on Friday, the matchup in Fort Worth has featured sluggish offenses.

TCU scored its first touchdown with 1:09 left in the first half. Grayson Muehlstein, the Horned Frogs' fifth-year senior quarterback, delivered a 6-yard pass to Jalen Reagor in the end zone.

Then Chuba Hubbard, a Cowboy running back, dropped a lateral pass on the first play of the second half. TCU's Jawuan Johnson returned it for a 15-yard touchdown. Jalen Reagor added the Horned Frogs' third touchdown when he took off for 83 yards.

The Cowboys' points came from a Matt Ammendola field goal in the first quarter. OSU has accumulated only 61 yards of offense but has 41 penalty yards against it.

Cowboy quarterback Taylor Cornelius went 7-for-15 for 35 yards in the first half. On the last play before halftime, Cornelius threw an interception. He delivered the ball into the hands of TCU cornerback Jeff Gladney.

The Horned Frogs have 176 yards of offense. Muehlstein, TCU's fifth-year senior quarterback, went 11-for-16 for 82 yards in the first half.
