Oklahoma State’s Justin Blackmon: Top WR in Next NFL Draft

Justin Blackmon is a front-runner for the college football top wide receiver award (the Biletnikoff). The junior playing for the Oklahoma State Cowboys is also the top WR in this NFL Draft class. He’ll definitely come out this year, as he seems to be a top 5 pick this April.

In the scouts’ eyes, Blackmon is rated ahead of South Carolina’s Alshon Jeffery currently. Blackmon’s size and agility make him able to stretch out and corral any balls thrown anywhere near his vicinity.

Get ready for a Pac-12 vs. SEC Challenge! Oh wait, not yet.

In a game that could affect both the conference and national title races, Oklahoma State (3-0) will travel to Texas A&M (2-0) Saturday. Brandon Weeden, the nation’s leading passer with 384.7 yards per game, has helped the Cowboys offense collect 157 points and average 601 yards per game, a mark that ranks second in the country. Leading the Aggies, however, Ryan Tannehill holds a 72.3 completion percentage and has yet to be sacked behind the A&M line.

For the first time ever, Oklahoma State and Texas A&M will meet with both teams ranking in the Associated Press top 10. The Aggies lead the series, winning 17 of the previous 28 meetings, but the Cowboys took the 2010 game with a 38-35 thriller in Stillwater, Okla.

State of Oklahoma Football Reaches Zenith; Sooners & Cowboys Rollin

“Texas forever?” Actually, it’s not the Lone Star State, but the smaller border state to the north that is currently on top of the college football world right now. The Sooner state has never seen this much of a boomtown for winning football as they do right now.

Both the Oklahoma Sooners and Oklahoma State Cowboys are winning big, and doing it with powerful, exciting aerial attacks. Oklahoma is a tiny state, with one professional sports franchise (Thunder from the NBA) and only three big name college sports teams. (if you count OSU and Tulsa as big names).

It’s safe to say this the first time both schools have been ranked in the top 7. Sooners #1, Ok. St. #7 and their rivalry bedlam this year will undoubtedly be the biggest in the series history.

Oklahoma, Oklahoma State to Join Pac 12?

If you’ve seen the ESPN 30 for 30 “Pony Excess” about the SMU Mustangs and their receiving of the college football death penalty in the 1980s, you might have noticed former NCAA investigator Dan Beebee. In that role, he truly was a great. In his role as a conference commissioner, he is an absolute train wreck. The Big 12 is utterly imploding, and there’s nothing he can do to stop it.

Oklahoma will apply for membership to the Pac-12 before the end of the month, and Oklahoma State is expected to follow suit, a source close to OU’s administration told Orangebloods.com.
