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.

Green held on to an interception with 32 seconds left to seal a 49-42 win over Iowa State on Saturday. Iowa State fans were understandably upset at the controversial call, but it appears the refs got the call correct with Green coming down with first possession.

The Iowa State Cyclones had one last gasp on Saturday, down 49-42 to the Oklahoma State Cowboys but driving down the field on the final possession. Iowa State fell to 6-4, and the loss left it behind Oklahoma, TCU, Oklahoma State and West Virginia in the Big 12 at 4-3. Oklahoma State improves to 8-2 overall and 5-2 in conference action. Lanning ran for a touchdown and also threw a touchdown to wide receiver Allen Lazard.

Noland had a strong game in Kempt's absence, as did quarterback-turned-linebacker Joel Lanning, who rushed for a short touchdown and threw a 22-yard score. Oklahoma State marched right down the field and Mason Rudolph connected with Marcell Ateman from 30 yards out to cut the lead to 42-40 with 5:55 left.

The win keeps Oklahoma State in the race for a berth in the Big 12 championship game, while the loss realistically ends Iowa State's conference title hopes.

Explosion rips through oil pipeline in Bahrain causing massive blaze
Independent news gathering there has grown more hard , with the government refusing to accredit two AP reporters and others. Fire crews later successfully extinguished the blaze on the pipeline, which belongs to the state-run Bahrain Petroleum Co.


The Cyclones finish the regular season with road games at Baylor and Kansas State.

But since Oklahoma State won, both teams can breathe easier.

The Cowboys were quick to business the next time they had the ball, Rudolph hit Dillon Stoner for a 19 yard touchdown pass to cap off a 3 play, 51 yard drive.

But Green clearly had more of the ball as he was down in the end zone.
