Quarterback Alan Bowman threw two scoring passes for the Cowboys (52, 3-1 Big 12), who earned their third straight win and moved into a second-place in the Big 12.
Gordon, who had 29 carries, now has four straight 100-yard rushing performances.
Oklahoma State went ahead for good after West Virginia (4-3, 2-2) tied the game 27-27 on a short field goal with 9:39 remaining.
A facemask penalty on West Virginia cornerback Beanie Bishop and a late out-of-bounds set up the Cowboys at the West Virginia 36-yard line. Bowman found Brennan Presley for a 29-yard touchdown two plays later for a 34-27 lead.
After West Virginia turned the ball over on downs near midfield, Gordon raced 46 yards for a touchdown on the next play with 4:15 remaining. Gordon closed the scoring with a 5 3-yard TD romp with 1:40 left.
