OSU's Brandon Weeden scoffs at the wind
By David Ubben
LUBBOCK, Texas -- The wind has picked up in Lubbock, with a few articles of debris making their way on the field and both goalposts wiggling.
There's a thin layer of dust looming over the downtown area, too, which can be seen from the top of the stadium.
Oklahoma State quarterback Brandon Weeden hasn't seemed to notice. Texas Tech's Seth Doege's accuracy has been spotty, but Weeden's playing as well as he has all season.
Oklahoma State leads 35-0 after scoring a touchdown on a fumbled kickoff.
Weeden has thrown the short passes well. He's been precise on intermediate throws, and he's completed long balls to receivers blanketed in coverage (28-yard TD to Isaiah Anderson) and wide-open receivers lost in coverage (27-yard TD to Josh Stewart).
This has been domination, and once again Weeden has been at the center of it.
He's 16-of-18 for 188 yards and three touchdowns in 16 minutes of play.
Sounds like a Heisman-type performance to me.
