Oklahoma State Beats Arizona in a Thursday Night Matchup
The #9 ranked Oklahoma State Cowboys beat the Arizona Wildcats 37-14 last night in Stillwater in what could be a future PAC-12 conference match-up.
OSU quarterback Brandon Weeden completed his first 13 passes and threw for 397 yards and two touchdowns to Justin Blackmon (pictured) and Joesph Randle ran for two more scores in a rematch of last year’s Alamo Bowl.
The OSU Cowboys (2-0) scored on their first three drives to open a 21-0 lead in the first 16½ minutes, then put it away with two scores midway through the second half over the Wildcats.
Randle had 121 yards rushing and nine catches for 99 yards, and Blackmon had 128 yards on 12 receptions to extend his NCAA record streak to 14 straight games with at least 100 yards receiving.
Weeden finished one less yard passing than Arizona’s Nick Foles in a duel between the nation’s top two passers from the first week of the season. Foles had a Bowl Subdivision-best 412 yards passing and a career-best five touchdown passes in his opener against Northern Arizona.
