The loss likely knocks Iowa State out of the Big 12 title hunt, while Oklahoma State still has a glimmer of hope.

After forcing Iowa State into a three-and-out on its next series, OSU needed only three plays to go ahead 49-42 with 3:47 left in the game.

The Cyclones are pretty much out of the race for the conference championship game, even though they have tiebreakers on both TCU and Oklahoma.

Oklahoma State clinched a crucial Big 12 victory over Iowa State with a controversial end zone interception with just 32 seconds remaining.

Earlier in the second half, Rudolph found Jalen McCleskey across the middle on a slant for 81 yards down to the Iowa State 1, then Hill dove over from a yard on the next play for a 31-28 Oklahoma State lead with 1:27 left in the third quarter. Nolan tossed a jump ball for Marchie Murdock in the end zone, only for A.J. Green to come down with an incredible game-sealing interception on apparent simultaneous possession.

Behind big performances from quarterback Mason Rudolph and running back Justice Hill, the No. 15 Oklahoma State Cowboys defeated the No. 21 Iowa State Cyclones in a 49-42 shootout Saturday at Jack Trice Stadium in Ames, Iowa.

The combination of Kempt, Noland and Lanning outplayed Rudolph in the first half, as he relied on Hill to provide the bulk of the offense.

After coming up with a crucial stop on third down, Iowa State got the ball back on its own 13 with 2:45 left. Linebacker and (former) quarterback Jake Lanning took some snaps too. They now have three conference losses, so they'll be behind even whichever team loses the Frogs-Sooners game Saturday night. Iowa State has beaten both teams and would get into the title game on a tiebreaker with wins over Baylor and Kansas State to finish the season. After two ISU penalties on the two-point conversion, OSU finally converted to tie it.
