In the two drives, Duggan accounted for a total of 130 yards passing and rushing, making the halftime score 17-17.
The second half is when Cowboy running back Chuba Hubbard was able to set the record straight on why he is the best running back in college football. On the second Cowboy drive of the half, all it took was one play and 13 seconds, for Chuba to go 92 yards and push the score to 24-17.
After the Oklahoma State defense was able to force two more turnovers for a total of four in the game. Chuba again, only needed two plays to go 62 yards to the house and push the score to 31-17 putting the score out of reach for the Horned Frogs.
