STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) – J.W. Walsh threw for 415 yards and a touchdown, and Joseph Randle scored twice and set up another touchdown with a big fourth-quarter run as Oklahoma State beat Iowa State 31-10 on Saturday.

Walsh was 32 of 47 in compiling the ninth-highest single-game passing performance in school history. The victory was the 63rd of coach Mike Gundy’s career, moving him past Pat Jones into No. 1 on the school’s all-time list.

The Cowboys (4-2, 2-1 Big 12) gained a small measure of revenge on Iowa State (4-3, 1-3), which ended Oklahoma State’s national title chances last year with an upset in double overtime. There was no drama this time – the Cyclones struggled to move the ball after scoring 10 first-quarter points.

Randle had 151 yards on 24 carries. His 62-yard gain early in the fourth quarter put the Cowboys at the 14-yard line, and Walsh scored three plays later.
