TULSA, Okla. — Brandon Weeden threw for 369 yards and three touchdowns, Joseph Randle ran for 128 yards and three more scores and No. 8 Oklahoma State waited out a three-hour rain delay before beating Tulsa 59-33 Sunday in a game that didn't start until after midnight.

A change in location, an extended weather delay and a much later than usual start did nothing to change the results for the Cowboys (3-0) in a rematch of a 65-28 win against Tulsa (1-2) last year in Stillwater.

About the only thing missing was a 100-yard receiving game from Justin Blackmon. The Biletnikoff Award winner's NCAA record run of 14 straight games in triple digits was halted. He had a 4-yard TD catch in the fourth quarter but had only 57 yards when the game ended at 3:35 a.m.

The NCAA doesn't keep records showing where the game ranks among the latest to start or finish.
