Oklahoma State Cowboys Obliterate Texas Tech, Win Big 66-6

Oklahoma State made a statement on Saturday, further proving that they belong in all national title discussion. The Cowboys obliterated Texas Tech, winning 66-6 in Lubbock, dropping Texas Tech's record down to 5-5, and 2-5 in conference.

The Cowboys scored 49 points before the Red Raiders even managed to get on the board. Texas Tech's first touchdown didn't come until the third quarter, when Cornelius Douglas returned a fumble 37 yards for a touchdown. Texas Tech, though, failed the two point conversion, not that it was of any consequence. 

Brandon Weeden was excellent, completing 31 of 37 passes for 423 yards and five touchdowns. Justin Blackmon was the recipient of two of those touchdown passes, as he caught six balls on the day for 103 yards. Josh Stewart also caught a pair of touchdowns for the Cowboys, and added 93 receiving yards of his own.

Oklahoma State also dominated on the ground as well, racking up 183 yards as a team rushing. Herschel Sims led the Cowboys with 109 yards on the ground on only 13 carries while Joseph Randle carried the ball 18 times for 73 yards, scoring three touchdowns. 

Texas Tech's offense, meanwhile, could only muster 270 total yards, 169 through the air and 101 on the ground. 

Oklahoma State will head to Iowa State to take on the Cyclones next week while the Red Raiders head to Missouri to take on the Tigers.
