First half action from the 1987 John Hancock Sun Bowl, featuring #11 Oklahoma State and West Virginia in one of the most entertaining postseason games of the 1987 college football season.

The heroes for Oklahoma State were many but the list was topped by bowl MVP Thurman Thomas who rushed for 157 yards on 33 carries and scored four touchdowns.

It wasn't easy for OSU, however as West Virginia scored two touchdowns and a field goal in the second quarter.

O-State's comeback began in the third quarter when Thomas scored from four yards out to pull the Pokes to within three, 24-21. West Virginia answered with a 38-yard field goal to lead 27-21. The Cowboys took the lead with 1:43 left in the third quarter on a six-yard pass from Gundy to Dillard and the successful PAT by Blanchard made it 28-27. The Cowboys took a 35-27 lead in the fourth quarter on a four-yard run by Thomas. O-State had to hold one more time, however, as West Virginia drove for a touchdown with just 1:13 left. OSU defender Shawn Mackey's goalline tackle on the two-point conversion try stopped West Virginia from tying the game in the final minute.
