STILLWATER â€” Not even a homecoming crowd of 59,124 Saturday afternoon at Boone Pickens Stadium could help the Oklahoma State Cowboys get out of their offensive, or lack thereof, funk.
The Pokes only scored one offensive touchdown in Saturdayâ€™s 34-10 home loss to the 22nd-ranked West Virginia Mountaineers.
That offensive touchdown for the Pokes (5-3 overall, 3-2 in Big 12 play) came with 8:34 left before halftime as Teddy Johnson caught an 8-yard touchdown pass from Daxx Garman to cut the deficit to 14-10. That offensive TD is the only one for the Cowboys in the last 10 quarters.
One issue Arkansas had going into its homecoming game against Alabama-Birmingham on Saturday at Frank Broyles Field at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium was the hope of reviving its running game.
It had flourished in September, including a win at Texas Tech and an overtime loss to Texas A&M, but struggled the previous two weeks in Southeastern Conference losses to Alabama and Georgia.
SHAWNEE â€” While Heavener cross country athletes Barbara Johnson and Frank Cruz did not win state titles, they did place in Saturdayâ€™s Class 3A State Meet at Gordon Cooper Vo-Tech Center.

TULSA â€” Poteauâ€™s Kandace Standridge won the 800-meter run state title at last springâ€™s Class 4A State Meet. Next weekend, sheâ€™ll have a shot at another state title.
Standridge grabbed the third out of seven individual berths to next weekendâ€™s state meet by finishing 10th in Saturdayâ€™s Class 4A Regional Meet at Oral Roberts University in Tulsa. She had a time of 14:04.01.
