Kendall Hunter rushed for 157 yards and
two touchdowns, Justin Blackmon had two touchdown catches and 132
yards receiving and Oklahoma State rallied from a halftime deficit
to beat Troy 41-38 on Saturday night.
Brandon Weeden completed 29 of 39 passes for 348 yards and two
touchdowns for the Cowboys (2-0), including a 53-yarder to Blackmon
with 8:08 left that gave the Cowboys a late cushion. Blackmon has
six touchdowns on the season.
Troy (1-1) beat Oklahoma State in 2007 in Alabama and for a time
it looked like the Trojans might do so again, as they led 27-20 at
halftime. But the Cowboys scored two touchdowns three minutes apart
in the third quarter to regain the lead.
Jerrell Jernigan returned a kickoff 100 yards for a touchdown
for Troy and caught 10 passes for 87 yards and a touchdown.
