Late field goal lifts No. 24 Oklahoma State over Texas 30-27

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Ben Grogan kicked a 40-yard field goal with 6 seconds left to lift No. 24 Oklahoma State to a 30-27 win over Texas on Saturday, giving the Cowboys their fourth straight win on the Longhorns' home field.

Grogan had tied the game with a 41-yarder with 1:33 left. The game appeared headed for overtime a minute later until Texas punter Michael Dickson, a rugby player from Australia, fumbled a deep snap and scrambled to get off a 10-yard punt near his own end zone.

Oklahoma State (4-0, 1-0 Big 12) almost didn't get a chance at Grogan's game-winner when the Cowboys were penalized with 10 seconds left. But because they still had a time out, it did not force the 10-second runoff and Grogan calmly drilled the final kick.

Texas (1-3, 0-1) scored two defensive touchdowns but still fell to one its worst starts in more than 50 years.
