Oklahoma State Clinches Win Over Iowa State WIth Controversial End Zone Interception

Iowa State running back David Montgomery had a big day of his own with 105 rushing yards and three touchdowns, as well as six receptions for 44 yards, but the Cyclones' inability to lock down OK State squandered that showing.
