Shaun Lewis intercepted Texas A&M’s Jerrod Johnson in the final seconds and Dan Bailey kicked a 40-yard field goal as time expired to lift Oklahoma State to a 38-35 victory over the Aggies last night in Stillwater, Okla.

Johnson turned the ball over five times, including a key fumble that led to a Cowboys touchdown in the fourth quarter and his fourth interception that Lewis returned 28 yards to set up the winning kick.

Brandon Weeden also had turnover problems early, but shrugged them off to throw for 284 yards and two touchdowns as the Cowboys (4-0, 1-0 Big 12) rallied from a 14-point deficit, only to let Texas A&M (3-1, 0-1) do the same.

Johnson threw for 409 yards and a career-best five touchdowns but ended up making one mistake too many.

Purdue loses Marve
Robert Marve, Purdue’s junior quarterback, will miss the rest of the season after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee last Saturday. Marve tore the ACL in the same knee last year. It was his first season with the Boilermakers after transferring from Miami . . . Virginia Tech star tailback Ryan Williams will miss his second game with a hamstring injury when the Hokies play at No. 23 North Carolina State tomorrow.
