Oklahoma State rolled 49-33 over Indiana in the Insight Bowl, the Hoosiers' first bowl game since 1993
Indiana took a 3-0 lead on its first possession, then the Cowboys scored 28 straight points to leave no doubt as to which team would win.
Oklahoma State led 35-10 at halftime, and 42-17 at the end of three quarters as Zac Robinson threw 3 TD passes and ran for two more scores.
The Hoosiers had 401 total yards but 179 came on three fourth quarter drives when the game was out-of-hand.
Indiana concluded the season with a 7-6 record under first-year head coach Bill Lynch who served as Terry Hoeppner's offensive coordinator. Hoeppner succumbed to complications from a brain tumor on June 19 and the season was dedicated to him.
Indiana's last bowl win was a 24-0 victory over Baylor in this game in 1991 when it was known as the Copper Bowl.
Last year, this game produced the largest comeback in bowl history when Texas Tech overcame a 38-7 halftime deficit to stun Minnesota 44-41 in overtime. That loss led to the firing of Golden Gopher head coach Glen Mason.
