Numbers tell most of the Bedlam story
By David Ubben
STILLWATER, Okla. -- Sometimes, this game is pretty simple. So far, Bedlam fits the bill. Oklahoma State is dominating.
All you need to do is glance at the stat sheet to see why the Cowboys lead, 10-0.
Brandon Weeden has completed 8 of 10 passes for 115 yards, and the Cowboys offense has been as sharp as ever. The running game is rolling too. Jeremy Smith and Joseph Randle have run for 53 yards and a touchdown on 10 carries. Everything Oklahoma State has wanted to do offensively is working.
Meanwhile, Oklahoma has made moving the ball on Oklahoma State look pretty difficult. Landry Jones has completed just 9 of his 18 passes for 84 yards and an interception deep downfield in the end zone.
The running game? Nonexistent. Brandon Williams has three carries for nine yards and Trey Franks added four on an end around.
Analyze it all you want. This doesn't take much.
Oklahoma State has sprinted out front and the reasons are obvious.
