Oklahoma State offensive coordinator Dana Holgorsen has now seen the University of Tulsa defense three times in his career and each time, Tulsa hasn't had an answer.
Saturday night, OSU put up a team record 722 yards and eclipsed 60 points for the second time this season, crushing TU 65-28 in Stillwater.
The first time Holgorsen's offense was seen by Tulsa, his Houston Cougars put up 70 points in 2008. Last season, the Cougars won on a last second field goal, winning 46-45.
In three contests, it's been no contest -- 2,058 total yards of offense and an average of 60.3 points. And each time, the total yardage numbers have gone up. In the first meeting - 641. Last year? 695. Saturday night, Holgorsen's Cowboys racked up 722 total yards -- breaking the old record which had stood since Mike Gundy and Barry Sanders helped rack up 717 yards against Kansas in 1988.
Holgorsen's attack-style offense has single-handedly vaulted Justin Blackmon from little-known receiver to possible Heisman contender. Blackmon caught six passes for 174 yards and three touchdowns Saturday to run his three-game total to 24 receptions, 431 yards and eight scores -- numbers which rank either tops or among the best in the country. He also has a punt return for a score.
The only person who could possibly be upset? The punter. He's used less often than the treadmill I bought last year. Quinn Sharp only trotted out on the field one time Saturday night.
Next up for the Pokes is the Big 12 Conference opener on September 30th against Texas A&M. The Aggies had to score 21 fourth-quarter points to come away with a 27-20 win at home over Florida International, but are also 3-and-0.
One thing I might mention to Oklahoma State -- you might want to get a bigger trough for Bullet before the end of the month. If the Cowboys keep this up, he's gonna need it.
