Justin Blackmon can run, too
By David Ubben
STILLWATER, Okla. -- Don't worry about Baylor gaining the early momentum in the second half.
Oklahoma State receiver Justin Blackmon took a pitch on an end around down the sideline for a 69 yard-touchdown on the first play of the second half, while plenty of fans were still trying to find their seats.
That has Oklahoma State with a decisive 31-0 lead, 21 seconds into the second half.
The Cowboys' quick-strike offense hadn't been striking so quickly yet today, with all four scoring drives lasting at least six plays and two minutes.
That changed quickly in the second half.
Oklahoma State only scored 24 points last week against Kansas State without Blackmon. It already has 31.
Seems like getting him back was kind of a big deal.
