STILLWATER — Joseph Randle rushed for 129 yards and two touchdowns, Justin Blackmon had 144 yards receiving and No. 9 Oklahoma State picked up where it left off last season on offense, beating Louisiana-Lafayette 61-34 on Saturday night.

Brandon Weeden completed 24 of 39 passes for 388 yards and three touchdowns for Oklahoma State (1-0) in Todd Monken's debut as the Cowboys' offensive coordinator. Monken replaced Dana Holgorsen, who is now the head coach at West Virginia.

New Louisiana-Lafayette coach Mark Hudspeth is the third coach of the Ragin' Cajuns to make his debut against Oklahoma State, and he fared like the other two, Nelson Stokley and Jerry Baldwin. Hudspeth's team scored two defensive touchdowns but did little offensively until the game had been decided.
