Jaylen Warren ran for three touchdowns to help No. 10 Oklahoma State roll past TCU 63-17 on Saturday night.

The Cowboys (9-1, 6-1 Big 12, No. 10 CFP) won their third straight. Oklahoma State moved into a tie for first place in the conference with Oklahoma with two games remaining, including a showdown with the Sooners on Nov. 27.

Warren ran for 103 yards and three touchdowns on 14 carries in the first half as the Cowboys took a 28-3 lead. Oklahoma State gained 352 yards and held TCU to 162.

The Cowboys took control by outscoring the Horned Frogs 21-0 in the second quarter. They closed out the first-half scoring with a 46-yard touchdown pass from Spencer Sanders to freshman Blaine Green.

TCU (4-6, 2-5) couldn't carry the momentum from a stunning win over then-No. 14 Baylor the previous week.

TCU: The Horned Frogs' top two running backs -- Zach Evans and Kendre Miller -- missed the game, and the Horned Frogs struggled to run the ball. They didn't score a touchdown until the fourth quarter.

Oklahoma State: The offense is catching up with a defense that has been strong all season. Most notably, Sanders has improved as a passer and decision maker. He went without a turnover, threw several balls away when nothing was available and slid to avoid contact.
