OSU Wins Shootout in Stillwater over K-State
STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) — Brandon Weeden passed for a team-record 502 yards and Joseph Randle scored the final, tiebreaking 23-yard touchdown with 2 minutes 16 seconds left Saturday night, lifting No. 3 Oklahoma State to a 52-45 victory against No. 17 Kansas State.
The Cowboys (9-0, 6-0 Big 12) matched the best start in school history and survived quite a scare from Kansas State (7-2, 4-2), which had three shots at the end zone in the final 12 seconds.
Collin Klein missed on a 5-yard passes intended for Tyler Lockett and Chris Harper, then overshot Tramaine Thompson in the end zone as time expired. Oklahoma State’s players rushed onto the field to celebrate, their national title hopes still intact.
Wide receiver Justin Blackmon caught 13 passes for 205 yards and 2 touchdowns, atoning for a two-fumble game with a 54-yard scoring catch with 4:47 remaining that pulled the Cowboys out of a 38-37 deficit.
Blackmon also caught the 2-point conversion for a 45-38 lead.
