"We're going to continue to coach them and try to make them better. We think in the long run it's overall better for our team with those guys out there."

JUMPING FOR JOY

The Cowboys have made the fade route a red-zone favorite thus far, with Brandon Weeden connecting several times with Justin Blackmon and once with Michael Harrison for jump-ball touchdowns.

Blackmon said he relishes such matchups.

"Going up and getting the ball is one of my strong points," Blackmon said. "It's a lot of fun winning the battle one-on-one. When you catch the ball on somebody one-on-one, it takes them down a little bit and picks you up."

NUMBING NUMBERS

Weeden has so far tried to downplay the numbers the OSU offense has compiled.

Still, even he admits that the 722-yard performance against Tulsa was something special.

"That's a pretty good feat for us," Weeden said. "I'd be lying if I said we weren't excited about it.

"It was good going into the off week, too, as a momentum builder."
