If you were looking for points on the board, you didn’t have to look farther than Stillwater.
Oklahoma State put on their rally caps and came back from a halftime deficit to beat Troy 41-38. Brandon Weeden threw for 348 yards and 2 TD’s and Justin Blackmon had 132 yards receiving along with 2 TD catches. Kendall Hunter continues to shine in the spotlight, rushing for 157 yards and 2 TD’s.
The Cowboys outgained the Trojans 522 to 371, but hurt themselves with 5 turnovers. Troy led 27-20 at halftime, and the second half featured both sides answering each other’s call. The Cowboys score 2 times in a span of 3 minutes to take the lead. With the 4th quarter winding down and OSU trying to run out the clock, Weeden fumbled and the Trojans recovered. But OSU’s defense held and secured the win, pushing the Cowboys record to 2-0 on the season.
Troy was able to upset the Pokes in 2007, but this year Mike Gundy’s squad wasn’t going to let history repeat itself. Hunter’s performance shows that he is one of the best backs in college football and someone to keep an eye on. In fact, after starting the season strong, The Cowboys may be a team to keep an eye.
