OKLAHOMA CITY – The Oklahoma State Cowboys are coming off one of the best seasons in school history, and enter the coming year with unprecedented expectations.
News9.com's Jessica Coody caught up with OSU receiver Justin Blackmon at the Cowboy Hall of Fame Wednesday, and the two discussed everything from dealing with those expectations to the Cowboys' new uniforms.
Blackmon exploded on the scene in his first year of full action last season, catching 111 passes for more than 1,700 yards and 20 touchdowns. He won the Biletnikoff Award as the nation's best receiver, and returns this year to be paired up with quarterback Brandon Weeden.
Blackmon and Weeden are expected to lead one of the most dangerous offenses in the nation, despite the departure of offensive coordinator Dana Holgorsen. The Cowboys will start their season on Sept. 3 – exactly one month from Wednesday – at home against Louisiana-Lafayette.
