Red Raiders Struggle in Loss to OSU, 34-17

LUBBOCK, Texas (KCBD) - Justin Blackmon had a career-high 207

yards receiving with a touchdown to lead No. 20 Oklahoma State to a

34-17 win over Texas Tech on Saturday, the Cowboys' first in

Lubbock since 1944.

Blackmon's 62-yard touchdown catch in the third quarter was the

longest play of the game and put the contest out of reach for the

Cowboys (6-0, 2-0 Big 12). Brandon Weeden completed 24 of 35 passes

for 356 yards, the touchdown and two interceptions.

The Cowboys went ahead 21-0 in the first quarter after three

rushing touchdowns - 15 yards by Kendall Hunter, and 4 yards each

by Joseph Randle and Jeremy Smith - and Texas Tech couldn't put

together enough offense in the second half to make it a contest.

Taylor Potts, who had 462 yards in last week's 45-38 win over

Baylor, went 28 of 43 for 226 yards and a touchdown for Texas Tech

(3-3, 1-6).
