Oklahoma State Cowboys
Lache Seastrunk rushed for 178 yards, including a 76-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter, and Nick Florence passed for 296 yards as Baylor beat No. 24 Oklahoma State 41-34 Saturday.
Baylor (7-5, 4-5 Big 12) has won at least seven games in three straight seasons - the first time the Bears have done that since 1949-51.
Seastrunk's long scoring run gave Baylor a 41-27 lead with 5:11 left in the game.
The sophomore burst through the middle and slowed down about 25 yards shy of the end zone. Seastrunk stumbled into the end zone and was down on the turf before limping off. Coach Art Briles said after the game Seastrunk had leg cramps.
J.W. Walsh rushed for two touchdowns and Josh Stewart had 147 yards receiving for Oklahoma State (7-5, 5-4).
Clint Chelf threw an 18-yard touchdown pass to David Glidden to make it 41-34 with 1:16 left in the game.
Baylor recovered the ensuing onside kick and ran out the clock to secure its third straight victory. The Bears had lost six in a row to the Cowboys by an average of 31.7 points.
Bears linebacker Eddie Lackey returned an interception for a touchdown in the first quarter to help Baylor jump out to a 21-point lead in the first half.
Florence threw a 75-yard touchdown pass to Tevin Reese and the senior quarterback also rushed for 71 yards and a score in the final home game of his career.
Florence has thrown for 4,121 yards this season and is 172 yards shy of breaking the school's single-season passing mark, which Robert Griffin III set last season.
After sputtering offensively most of the second half, Oklahoma State drove 88 yards to make it 34-27 on Walsh's 4-yard touchdown run with 5:30 left in the game.
On the next play from scrimmage, Seastrunk broke loose for his 76-yard touchdown. As soon as he crossed the goal line, the Baylor crowd began chanting his name.
The Baylor medical staff rushed onto the field when Seastrunk stayed down on the ground. Seastrunk remained on the sideline the rest of the way after limping off the field, but he didn't return to the game.
The Bears took the lead for good early on Lackey's second interception return for a touchdown in two games.
The junior linebacker picked off a short pass in the flat and ran untouched for a 26-yard touchdown that gave Baylor a 10-3 lead.
The Bears scored on their next two possessions to build a 24-3 lead. Glasco Martin powered in for a 2-yard touchdown run to cap a 16-play, 98-yard drive.
Florence then found Reese for a 75-yard touchdown pass. Reese caught the ball at the 40 and raced past three Oklahoma State defenders into the end zone.
The Cowboys got within 24-17 with consecutive touchdowns. Walsh had a 1-yard run and Chelf threw a 15-yard scoring pass to Stewart.
Chelf was 30 of 51 for 333 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions.
Florence's 3-yard touchdown run made it 31-17 with 3:33 left in the first half.
Oklahoma State tight end Blake Jackson dropped two potential touchdown passes in the game. He had one on the Cowboys' first drive of the game and again early in the third quarter.
The Cowboys were able to kick field goals after the drops, including Quinn Sharp's 43-yarder in the third quarter that made it 31-20

Pulling a hamstring is not fun. Pulling a hamstring in the middle of a play with large, athletic men trying to destroy you is also not fun. Somehow out running these large, athletic men and scoring a touchdown on this same play is, well, unusual and awesome. That’s what Baylor running back Lache Seastrunk did [...]
Baylor running back Lache Seastrunk pulled off a fairly incredible TD run against Oklahoma State on Saturday, and got injured on the play but that didn’t stop him. Lache injured his hamstring halfway through his 76-yard scoring run in the fourth quarter of the Bears’ 41-34 win. Check out the beastly run below:

I have no idea how Baylor running back Lache Seastrunk was able to complete this 76-yard touchdown run after pulling his hamstring half-way through but its pretty epic.
How slow is Oklahoma State that they can’t catch a dude with a pulled hammy. Time to run some windsprints boys.

Baylor's Lache Seastrunk rushed for 178 yards in the Bears' win over Oklahoma State Saturday, but none of them were more important than this 76-yard, one-legged TD run.

This is nothing short of impressive. To gut that last 45-50 yards out with what looks to be a pulled hamstring was great. Seastrunk put the team above himself and worked to seal the game for Baylor. It’s unbelievable that he was able to outrun the Oklahoma State defenders after suffering the injury. Seastrunk finished the game with 16 carries for 178 yards and 1 TD.Greg...
Baylor's Lache Seastrunk runs for a 76-yard TD against OSU on one good leg after pulling hamstring. Clearly if you've been on the internet at all in the last couple years this immediately reminds you of the Greg Jennings broken leg video. Can't believe someone actually pulled it off in real life though. Check out the video below, and I'm sure we will get a remake...
