OSU Cowboys Hold Off Huskeys 30-22
The Oklahoma State Cowboys may have gone through their most difficult season under coach Mike Gundy, losing five straight games before squeaking into a bowl game. Once OSU got to the Cactus Bowl, they rode a freshman quarterback and an offensively gifted defensive tackle to a spirit-lifting victory.
Though he had never played offense before, the beefy defensive tackle lined up in the shotgun to score on a 1-yard run in the first half, helping Oklahoma State build a 17-point halftime lead.
Washington rallied to within a touchdown in the second half, but Castleman wreaked havoc again, catching a pass out of the backfield and rumbling down the sideline for a 48-yard catch that all but killed the Huskies' hopes.
