Tulsa, OK –
Weeden's 6 TDs lift Okla. St. past Tulsa 65-28
STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) Brandon Weeden passed for 409 yards and six touchdowns, three to Justin Blackmon, and Oklahoma State set a school record for total offense in a 65-28 victory against Tulsa on Saturday night.
Weeden's left the game after one series in the third quarter, following an 81-yard scoring pass to Blackmon, the sixth-longest pass play in school history. He completed 23 of 32 passes.
The teams combined for 1,150 yards of offense, including 722 by Oklahoma State, breaking the school record of 717 set against Kansas during Barry Sanders' Heisman Trophy season in 1988.
Blackmon had six catches for 174 yards and has nine touchdowns this season.
Oklahoma State is 3-0 for the 19th time and the fourth time in six seasons under coach Mike Gundy.
G.J. Kinne passed for 219 yards but threw three interceptions for Tulsa (1-2).
No. 7 Oklahoma holds off Air Force 27-24
NORMAN, Okla. (AP) DeMarco Murray gained a total of 148 yards and scored three touchdowns to help No. 7 Oklahoma hold off a late charge from Air Force's overpowering run game to beat the Falcons 27-24 on Saturday.
Murray ran for a 5-yard touchdown and scored on a 17-yard screen pass in the third quarter as the Sooners (3-0) reeled off 17 straight points to pull away after Air Force (2-1) had tied it early in the second half.
That ended up being just enough to hold off a late charge by the Falcons.
Jared Tew and Kyle Halderman had rushing TDs in the fourth quarter for Air Force, but Oklahoma was able to pick up two first downs and run out the final 3:39.
The Falcons ran for 351 yards, but the Sooners still extended the nation's longest home winning streak to 33.
