(GLENDALE) — The Oklahoma State Cowboys defeated the Stanford Cardinals 41-38 in overtime Monday.
Cowboys quarterback Brandon Weeden threw for 399 yards and three touchdowns in the victory.
The man catching all those touchdowns was receiver Justin Blackmon, who declared after the game that he is leaving for the NFL.
The win puts the Cowboys’ record at 12-1, which leaves the chance that they could become split national champions.
“There is nothing we can do from here,” said Blackmon. “I do think we do have the best team in the nation.”
The Cowboys will have to wait till January 9th when Alabama plays LSU for the title. If Alabama wins, it will have the same record as Oklahoma State, leaving the opportunity for the Cowboys to be ranked number one in the Associated Press poll.
