Oklahoma State Vs. Baylor: Blowout Brewing In Stillwater

The second half kicks off with a bang, as Dana Holgorsen's boys open play from scrimmage with a nifty little gadget play involving a perfectly sold play fake, an inconsequential-seeming flip from Brandon Weeden to Justin Blackmon, and a nice block from Bo Bowling assisting on a 69-yard touchdown run.

The Bears, again, go three-and-out, and after a pass-happy Weeden drive supplemented by a 24-yard Joseph Randle run, the Baylor defense stands up a little and, with the help of a penalty, forces the 'Pokes to settle for three.

Baylor finds its sea legs, finally, with 6:33 remaining in the third quarter, as Jay Finley scrambles in for a 9-yard touchdown run to put the Bears on the board. Unruffled, Brandon Weeden throws a 14-yard pass on first down, then a 62-yard touchdown bomb to Colton Chelf.

All seems quite lost for Baylor, who punts on their ensuing drive after just over two minutes of play, but a rare Kendall Hunter fumble sets up another Finley touchdown dart. Oklahoma State suddenly goes three-and-out-themselves, and that's the effective end of the third quarter. Oklahoma State leads, 41-14.

Oklahoma State Vs. Baylor: 'Pokes Pulling Away In A Hurry, 24-0

Time to meet a face perhaps unfamiliar to national viewers: Oklahoma State receiver Bo Bowling, who's second only to Justin Blackmon in receiving yards this afternoon. The duo are the stars of Oklahoma State's first second-quarter drive, with Bowling catching two passes for eight and 14 yards and Blackmon breaking off for a 38-yard catch down the middle. Kendall Hunter does the rest: Four short runs and he's in, despite a Baylor facemask on the goal line.

Jay Finley gets the first couple touches for the Bears, and Robert Griffin takes over. He's not turning heads with his completion rating, but he gets a respectable drive going from Baylor's 20 down to OKState's 27, where a Jay Finley fumble surrenders the ball.

Back to Hunter, Weeden, and Blackmon. The 'Pokes make short work of the next drive thanks to a 22-yard Hunter rush and a 20-yard Weeden-Blackmon connection. Hunter scores his second short-yardage touchdown of the afternoon with 4:46 remaining in the half.

Gut check time for the Bears. Another Griffin-intensive drive ends in an endzone interception, but Oklahoma State's responding drive ends in a missed 31-yard field goal. At the end of the first half, Oklahoma State leads Baylor, 24-0.

Oklahoma State Vs. Baylor: Clutch Justin Blackmon Catch Puts 'Pokes Up Early

A nine-yard penalty on Baylor's opening kickoff return really set the tone for this game, as the Bears and 'Pokes have racked up considerably fewer points than one might have expected heading into today's game. Robert Griffin completes three straight passes on Baylor's first three plays, but two of the following three passes falling incomplete send out the Bears' punter.

Brandon Weeden has both Kendall Hunter and Justin Blackmon at his disposal this week, but spreads the ball around to four different receivers on the Pokes' answering drive, while contributing a 19-yard run of his own. After just over four minutes of marching OKState from their own 5-yard line to Baylor's 6, the Cowboys settle for a field goal. 8:27 remain in the first quarter.

Baylor converts their first set of ensuing downs, but a Josh Gordon fumble gives the ball right back, and it's time to see what Justin Blackmon can do.

What he can do, it turns out, is catch a perfectly-thrown over-the-shoulder touchdown pass from Weeden wwith 4:18 remaining in the quarter. Baylor goes three-and-out twice and the 'Pokes turn the ball over one more time on downs, and a quiet first quarter ends in Stillwater. Oklahoma State leads Baylor, 10-1. Brandon Weeden is 11 of 14 for 106 yards and a touchdown.
