Oklahoma State's first visit to Tulsa since the 2011 midnight kickoff was much hotter and much closer.

Cowboys running back Chuba Hubbard was the star early, and Tylan Wallace caught a 90-yard touchdown in the third quarter as OSU controlled the second half in a 40-21 victory.

Hubbard rushed for more than 250 yards and three touchdowns. He had two early TDs that staked OSU to a 17-0 lead.

But the Hurricane defense stiffened, and TU's Zach Smith and Shamari Brooks got on track.

Brooks, who had more than 100 yards rushing, scored two short touchdowns in the second quarter as TU took a 21-20 lead into the locker room.

OSU retook the lead late in the third quarter on a Spencer Sanders 27-yard run, then rebuilt a two-score cushion on the 90-yard TD pass to Wallace with 1:29 left in the third quarter.
