Oklahoma State Cowboys
November 6, 2011 by staff
Oklahoma State Cowboys, On a night with serious national championship implications, No. 4 Oklahoma State showed what the Big 12′s thrilling offenses bring to the table. Brandon Weeden threw for a school-record 502 yards and four touchdowns, and Joseph Randle scored the final, tiebreaking 23-yard touchdown with 2:16 remaining to lift No. 4 Oklahoma State to a 52-45 victory against No. 19 Kansas State on Saturday night.
While top-ranked LSU was edging out No. 2 Alabama 9-6 to get a leg up in the SEC’s part of the BCS picture, Weeden and the Cowboys (9-0, 6-0 Big 12) won their own version of a wild one that came right down to the end.
“I’m sure that one was pretty fun as well,” Weeden said. “To come out on top in this one feels really, really good.”
The Cowboys matched the best start in school history — accomplished only during the 1945 team’s perfect Sugar Bowl season — and survived quite a scare from K-State (7-2, 4-2), which had three shots at the end zone from the OSU 5 in the final 12 seconds.
Collin Klein missed on passes intended for Tyler Lockett and Chris Harper and then overshot Tramaine Thompson in the end zone as time expired. Oklahoma State’s players rushed on to the field to celebrate, their national championship hopes still intact.
