Oklahoma State’s Mason Rudolph passed for 425 yards and three touchdowns and ran for a score. James Washington caught eight passes for 159 yards and two touchdowns for the Cowboys, who are No. 13 in the College Football Playoff rankings.

Rudolph threw a 14-yard touchdown pass to Dillon Stoner, cutting Kansas State’s lead to 45-40 with just over four minutes to go. The Wildcats went three-and-out, giving Oklahoma State a chance to take the lead, but Rudolph missed four straight passes, and Kansas State ran out the clock.

It was Oklahoma State’s third home loss, and it crushed the Cowboys’ already slim chances of reaching the playoff.

Mike Gundy, the Cowboys’ coach, said, “We all need to look at ourselves and figure out what’s going on, because for whatever reason, we’re not showing up.”
