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.
