Brandon Weeden, Oklahoma State Handle Tulsa 59-33 Despite Weather Delays

One of the latest college football games of the weekend had the longest delay, but Oklahoma State and Tulsa finally got to play their game when everything was said and done. The Oklahoma State Cowboys were scheduled to play at Tulsa at 9pm CT but weather delayed the game three full hours because of lightning storms coming through Tulsa. Thus the game didn’t even kick off until approximately 12:17 local time. In the end, the Cowboys won 59-33.

Brandon Weeden had three touchdown passes, one to Justin Blackmon. Joseph Randle had three touchdowns more on the ground while earning an impressive 128 yards on 25 carries, his third straight 100 yard game. Jeremy Smith also bolstered the ground game with one touchdown and 52 yards on 13 carries.

Tulsa never got into the game whatsoever, a contest much more lopsided than the score might indicate. They were down 45-6 at one point, so Tulsa got much of its score near the end of the game. Oklahoma State’s win was dominated by its defense as well, which had four interceptions of Tulsa quarterbacks.
