Cowboys exploit Texas A&M turnovers

Fri., Oct. 1, 2010

STILLWATER, Okla. – Shaun Lewis intercepted Jerrod Johnson’s pass in the final seconds and Dan Bailey kicked a 40-yard field goal as time expired to lift Oklahoma State to a 38-35 victory over Texas A&M on Thursday night.

Johnson turned the ball over five times, including a key fumble that led to a Cowboys touchdown in the fourth quarter and his fourth interception that Lewis returned 28 yards to set up the winner.

Brandon Weeden also had turnover problems early, but shrugged them off to throw for 284 yards and two touchdowns as the Cowboys (4-0, 1-0 Big 12) rallied from a 14-point deficit only to let Texas A&M (3-1, 0-1) do the same.

Johnson threw for 409 yards and a career-best five touchdowns but ended up making one mistake too many.

Johnson threw two touchdown passes in the final 51/2 minutes and had a chance to lead the Aggies on a winning drive before he overthrew a pass into the arms of Lewis, who fell down at the 40-yard line. Oklahoma State picked up 17 yards on two plays before sending on Bailey.
