    [​IMG]Early in the season, Oklahoma State trailed at halftime to Louisiana-Lafayette, Troy and Texas A&M.

    They came back to win all three games, including a 31-point second half that resulted in a last-second win against the Aggies.

    The Cowboys don't need a comeback in this one, but after a lackluster first half, might be ready for another big half with a 20-14 lead against Kansas, whose only conference win came over Colorado two weeks ago.

    Unlike in the win over Texas A&M, the offense has played well. Brandon Weeden has completed 14-of-20 passes for 189 yards and a touchdown. Kendall Hunter has 85 yards on the ground and Justin Blackmon has caught four passes for 76 yards.

    The biggest reason the Cowboys only have 20 points has been a string of long drives from Kansas, as well as having to settle for field goals deep in Kansas territory.

    That solid play by the offense should continue, but any impressive margin of victory in the second half is going to have to be spurred by the defense, which has been unable to get the Jayhawks off the field, giving up a staggering 15 first downs and 224 yards of offense.
