OSU football notebook: Cowboys quarterback Brandon Weeden working Tracy Moore in more

“And then defensively, there's been times where they've played really good. As far as how or why the roller-coaster (season), I can't explain that.”


Of OSU's top 10 passing games ever, Weeden has produced four, with three coming this season.

Weeden's 502-yard effort Saturday against Kansas State ranks No. 1 on the list, followed by his 438-yard performance at Texas A&M earlier. His 397-yard game against Arizona is No. 9.

Despite starting less than two full seasons to this point, he's on the doorstep of more Cowboys history, ranking third in career passing yards and second in career touchdown passes.

Weeden should claim both marks soon. He trails No. 2 Gundy by 52 yards and No. 1 Zac Robinson by 572 yards. He's just two TD tosses shy of Robinson on that list.


It's uncertain where he heard it, but Tech quarterback Seth Doege seems to be taking offense to apparent unflattering comparisons between the Red Raiders offense and OSU's.

We've “kind of been named Oklahoma State's almost JV squad,” Doege said during Tech's Monday press luncheon in Lubbock. “And so we kind of take that personal.”

Doege said the Raiders plan to prove their worth Saturday against the Cowboys.

“We want to get better every day,” Doege said. “And that's our plan is to go out and prove every practice and be ready for this game to show we're not a JV squad, that we're a really good offense and a really good football team. That when we do things right, we're going to be hard to beat.”
