STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) Wes Lunt passed for 324 yards and a touchdown in his first start in six weeks, Quinn Sharp tied a school record with five field goals and Oklahoma State overcame a sluggish first half to beat TCU 36-14 on Saturday.

Lunt, playing for the first time since suffering a knee injury in a Sept. 15 game against Louisiana-Lafayette, started slow but finished strong as Oklahoma State scored 36 unanswered points after falling behind 14-0.

Lunt completed 18 of 33 passes for the Cowboys (5-2, 3-1 Big 12) in their first meeting with TCU (5-3, 2-3) since 1993. He guided Oklahoma State on third-quarter touchdown drives of 64 and 80 yards to erase TCU's 14-9 halftime lead.

Joseph Randle rushed for 126 yards and a touchdown on 32 carries for Oklahoma State, and Josh Stewart caught six passes for 120 yards.

TCU is 1-3 since suspending starting quarterback Casey Pachall after he was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving. His replacement, Trevone Boykin, was 21 of 40 for 185 yards as the Horned Frogs' streak of scoring at least 20 points ended at 33 games, which had been the nation's longest such run. Oklahoma State now has the current longest streak at 33 games.
