Big plays for Oklahoma leading to Bedlam Beatdown in Stillwater

Big plays have been the key to a big first half for No. 3 Oklahoma in Stillwater. A 59-yard kickoff return to the Oklahoma State four-yard line set up Oklahoma’s first touchdown of a wild first half, and running backs Samaje Perine (68 yards) and Joe Mixon (66 yards) have ripped off long touchdown runs against No. 11 Oklahoma State and the Sooners hold a 44-20 lead on their in-state rivals at halftime.

Oklahoma’s first three touchdown drives all needed four plays or fewer, but the Sooners also showed it could work a drive and finish it off with a score as well. The Sooners put together a 12-play drive spanning 80 yards, with Baker Mayfield capping things off with a five-yard touchdown pass to Dimitri Flowers. Mayfield connected earlier with Sterling Shepard. Oklahoma State’s lone touchdown of the half came on a J.W. Walsh touchdown pass to Jhajuan Seales from 26 yards out. Walsh got the start instead of an injured Mason Rudolph. Rudolph sprained his ankle, but he did enter the game late in the first half as the Cowboys attempted to spark the passing game. Walsh was 13-of-19 for 133 yards and a touchdown before Rudolph entered the game. It did not go so well, as Rudolph was picked off by Jordan Thomas, who returned the interception 32 yards for a touchdown, giving Oklahoma a commanding 35-10 lead.

Just how bad of a half was this for Oklahoma State? It turns out it was the worst first half in over a decade.

Whichever team wins this game will be awarded the Big 12 championship. That was made clear when Baylor was upset by TCU last night in soggy Fort Worth, Texas. For Oklahoma, a win also likely secures a spot in the College Football Playoff despite being off next week. Oklahoma State may need a few more bounces to go their way given the most recent standings, but it would certainly be within reach if the Cowboys can beattle back to grab the win. Stopping Oklahoma’s offense to makr that happen may not be easy though given how the firts half played out.

Oklahoma State dismisses freshman CB

Oklahoma State has dismissed freshman cornerback Juwan Offray from the football program.

According to the original report published by OColly.com, Offray was let go by the football program following an arrest for public intoxication Sunday morning. Offray was arrested with wide receiver Jhajuan Seales after the two were found passed out in a fast food drive thru. Per the report, this was not the first strike for Offray, but the details of any previous infractions have not been confirmed.

Offray is still enrolled at Oklahoma State, although it is being reported he will pursue a transfer in the future to continue playing football elsewhere in the Big 12.

Offray has appeared in all seven games to this point in the season for Oklahoma State, with three tackles to show for it. Oklahoma State’s secondary should prove to be as vulnerable as ever as the depth thins out following this dismissal. Oklahoma State ranks 10th in the 10-team Big 12 against the pass. The Cowboys have allowed an average of 288.4 passing yards per game, and Baylor and Oklahoma still remain on the schedule after West Virginia today. So do Kansas State and Texas.

Two OSU Cowboys arrested after falling asleep in fast-food drive-thru

In October of 2010, Josh Gordon was one of two Baylor football players charged after falling asleep in the drive-thru lane at a Taco Bell. Three years later, Gordon was named an NFL All-Pro after setting a slew of records.

Fast-forward to October of 2014, a pair of Oklahoma State football players are hoping they can rise above passed-out fast-food circumstances as well.

According to multiple media outlets, wide receiver Jhajuan Seales and cornerback Juwan Offray were arrested early Sunday morning on complaints of public intoxication. Offray was also cited for hampering an officer.

The arrests occurred at a local Whataburger restaurant 12 hours or so after a blow-out loss to TCU. And the arrest report doesn’t paint a pretty picture for either player. From Tulsa World:

After arriving at the restaurant, two officers report having seen two men asleep in the front seats of the car, which, according to the police report, was running and in drive with Seales’ foot on the brake.

“Both males were totally asleep and oblivious to anything going on around them,” one of the officers stated in the report.

The police report indicates that the officers awakened Seales and Offray by knocking on the car windows. Seales and Offray “seemed very lethargic and confused” and “their eyes were red and watery with a glassy appearance,” the report states.

More from the officers’ report: “I observed Seales trying to turn the vehicle off and he seemed very confused and unable to possess even the manual dexterity to simply turn the key to the off position. In fact, (Offray) had to physically help Seales turn the vehicle off.”

“When Jhajuan opened the driver-side door,” one of the officers reported, “I was immediately overwhelmed with a very strong odor associated with an alcoholic beverage coming from the car.”

A tall tale was told by Offray as well, which is why you should click HERE again for the Tulsa World account.

There’s no word yet on what if any punishment either player will be facing. If said punishment involves lost playing time, the loss of Seales and his explosiveness would be the more significant one.

Through seven games, Seales is tied for the team lead in touchdown receptions with three. Among receivers with 10 or more catches, his 18.2 yards per reception is second on the team.

Offray has been credited with three tackles in the seven games in which he’s played.
