Quarterback Spencer Sanders rushes for a touchdown in the fourth quarter. 

On Saturday, the No. 12 Oklahoma State Cowboys took down the No. 25 Texas Longhorns 32-24 in Austin.

Going into the fourth quarter down 24-16, the Cowboys were looking for a spark from quarterback Spencer Sanders who up to this point in the game had struggled. 

The offense started with an impressive drive that led to a Sanders 7-yard touchdown pass to sophomore Brennan Presley to shorten the gap to 24-22.

Sanders bounced back from a rough first half and led back-to-back scoring drives for the Cowboys. The big play being a 10-yard rush from Sanders with 2:18 left in the game to put the Cowboys up 32-24 and defeat the Longhorns.

This big win for the Cowboys marks the first time in school history that the team has beaten three top 25 teams consecutively after knocking off Kansas State, Baylor and now Texas.
