Justin Blackmon caught a pair of touchdowns, Joseph Randle dashed for two scores of his own, and Oklahoma State dominated the Arizona Wildcats for the second straight year, winning 37-14 in Boone Pickens Stadium on Thursday night.
Like the team's last meeting, this contest was over before it could even begin. With the Wildcats' star wide receiver, Juron Criner, sitting out with an injury, the Cowboys jumped out to an early 21-0 lead and never looked back. Brandon Weeden dissected the Arizona defense with tremendous precision, throwing two touchdowns passes while completing 42-of-53 for 397 yards. Randle rushed for 121 yards on 15 attempts, including a pair of first half score that quickly put the game out of reach. And Blackmon finished things off, catching 12 passes for 128 yards and two touchdowns, including an eight-yarder that pushed the Cowboy lead to 21 entering the fourth quarter.
Arizona finally mounted some offense late, as Nick Foles tossed a 54-yard touchdown bomb to Dan Buckner midway through the fourth quarter, but by then it was too little, too late. Foles finished 36-of-50 for 388 yards and the lone score.
