Welcome to the Monday edition of our Oklahoma State DieHards morning roundupwhere we take you through the biggest headlines around Oklahoma State athletics.

Cowboys inch past Longhorns for fifth consecutive win in Austin

In a game that featured more punt yardage than total offense, Oklahoma State beat Texas, 13-10, in overtime. Ramon Richards’ interception gave the Cowboys five consecutive road victories over the Longhorns, with Texas not throwing a touchdown pass in any of those games. Despite the Cowboys’ victory, they fell one spot to No. 11 in the AP Poll.

Coach Mike Gundy made note of the Cowboys’ tremendous defensive effort as Oklahoma State scored its fewest points in a victory since 1995. Gundy was disappointed, though, that he didn’t get to dance afterward.

Mason Rudolph ties program win record despite ‘minor injury’

Oklahoma State quarterback Mason Rudolph wasn’t only dealing with a tough Texas defense, but also some kind of physical ailment. After the game, Rudolph said he had a “very minor injury” against the Longhorns but reiterated he was “fine.” For only the sixth time, Rudolph didn’t have a touchdown pass while failing to reach 300 yards for the first time in eight games.

He did, though, match Gundy with his 28th victory as the Cowboys’ starting quarterback, the most in program history.
