Reid, Oklahoma State rally for thrilling win over Kansas

Oct 14, 2006 - 11:37 PM LAWRENCE, Kansas (Ticker) -- Bobby Reid used his arm and legs to help Oklahoma State finally end its conference road woes.

Reid passed for five touchdowns and ran for another score as Oklahoma State rallied from a 17-point deficit to post a 42-32 Big 12 Conference triumph over Kansas.

It was the first Big 12 road win in nearly two years for the Cowboys (4-2, 1-1 Big 12 South), who last won a conference contest away from home at Missouri on October 23, 2004.

The Cowboys fell behind, 17-0, early in the third quarter and appeared headed to their eighth straight conference road loss. But Reid, a sophomore, ignited Oklahoma State's second-half rally with one of the greatest individual offensive performances in school history.

Reid completed 23-of-31 attempts for a career-high 411 yards - the school's second-highest passing total - and ran for 46 yards on 14 carries. His 457 total yards shattered the previous school record of 434 set by current coach Mike Gundy in 1989.

Reid's favorite target was Adarius Bowman, who recorded career highs of 13 receptions for 300 yards and four TDs.

After scampering for a 29-yard score to draw Oklahoma State within 17-14 midway through the third quarter, Reid found Bowman for a 25-yard TD pass with 4:38 remaining in the period to give the Cowboys the lead for good at 21-17.

Reid and Bowman hooked up for two more scores over the next 13 minutes as Oklahoma State built a 42-25 cushion late in the fourth quarter.

Kerry Meier completed 15-of-27 attempts for 187 yards and three TDs while running for 70 yards on 20 carries for Kansas (3-4, 0-3), which converted just 2-of-12 third downs and yielded 28 consecutive points bridging the third and fourth quarters.
