Your OSU Cowboys desperately needed a win this weekend and they managed to do it convincingly, besting West Virginia 55-34.

Although the game was tight OSU was helped by a staunch defensive effort that held former Heisman Trophy candidate Geno Smith to only two td's passing.  The defense also snagged a pair of fumbles that ended critical scoring drives for West Virginia.

The Mountaneers outscored OSU 17-10 in the third quarter and the game was as close as 38-34 after Cowboys quarterback Clint Chelf threw an interception that set up a touchdown with 5:20 left in the third.

Chelf finished 22 of 31 for 292 yards, four touchdowns and the one interception.

The win raises OSU to 6-3 overall.
