Oklahoma State Survives Stanford to Win Their First BCS Bowl Game 41-38
Oklahoma State needed overtime to put away the Stanford Cardinal, and they did it by the slimmest of margins.
Oklahoma State won its first ever trip to a BCS bowl game by taking down the Stanford Cardinal 41-38. Oklahoma States Brandon Weeden played a good game completing 24-of-42 passes for 399 yards and three TDs. His favorite target was Biletnikoff Award winner Justin Blackmon who snagged eight passes for 186 yards and three TDs.
Weeden's performance paled in comparison however to his counterpart on the Cardinal who completed 27-of-31 passes for 347 yards and two TDs. Strong numbers for the likely number one pick in the upcoming NFL draft. His numbers, as impressive as they are didn't propel them to victory.
The Cardinal had a chance to win it at the end of regulation, but Jordan Williamson missed a potential game-winning field goal at the end of regulation. He also missed a field goal on Stanford's first possession of regulation, allowing for the easy Oklahoma State score, and win.
Immediately after the game, Justin Blackmon chose to forgo his senior season at Oklahoma State, and enter the NFL draft.
