Sunday Morning Quarter Back
Undated – NORMAN, Okla. (AP) Langston transfer tailback Dominique Whaley ran for four scores in his Sooners debut and top-ranked Oklahoma beat Tulsa 47-14 Saturday night. Landry Jones threw for 375 yards, and favorite target Ryan Broyles came up just shy of his own school receptions record with 14 catches for 158 yards. The Sooners have extended the nation's longest home winning streak with their 37th straight victory at Owen Field.
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott is willing to listen if Oklahoma or anyone else wants to join his conference. Speaking before Number 4 LSU's 40-27 victory over Number 3 Oregon at Cowboys Stadium in North Texas, Scott said "schools have reached out to us." Oklahoma State billionaire booster T. Boone Pickens told reporters in Stillwater before OSU's big win Saturday he thinks both OU and Texas will likely join the Pac-12 after the Big 12 falls apart.
STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) Joseph Randle rushed for 129 yards and two touchdowns, Justin Blackmon had 144 yards receiving and Number 9 Oklahoma State rolled over Louisiana-Lafayette 61-34 last night. Brandon Weeden completed 24 of 39 passes for 388 yards and three touchdowns in Todd Monken's debut as the Cowboys' offensive coordinator.
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) Terrance Walker returned a fumble five yards for a touchdown to lead an opportunistic Langston defense as the NAIA school defeated Arkansas-Pine Bluff 19-12 in Saturday's season opener. Langston forced five turnovers against the Golden Lions in Little Rock.
