STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) — Brandon Weeden threw for 288 yards and five touchdowns before being pulled out of a lopsided game before halftime, and No. 6 Oklahoma State matched its highest scoring total from the last 94 years in a 70-28 rout of Kansas on Saturday.

Jamie Blatnick recovered a fumble and leaped to tip an interception to himself for two of the Cowboys' four first-half takeaways, and Oklahoma State (5-0, 2-0 Big 12) scored touchdowns on all eight of its possessions before halftime against the nation's worst defense.

Kansas (2-3, 0-2) came in allowing a Bowl Subdivision-worst 44.3 points per game, and Oklahoma State had already surpassed that total with 4 minutes left in the second quarter on Weeden's second TD pass to All-American receiver Justin Blackmon.
