STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) _ Bobby Reid threw four touchdown passes and Mike Hamilton rushed for 155 yards to lead Oklahoma State past Missouri State 52-10.
Freshman Perrish Cox returned the opening kickoff 96 yards for a touchdown to give the Cowboys a quick lead last night and the Cowboys increased their advantage to 38-0 by halftime.
A blocked punt by freshman Chris Collins deep in Missouri State territory in the third quarter set up an 8-yard touchdown run by Keith Toston to make it 45-0.
Reid, who was limited by injuries last season to seven games and threw only two touchdown passes, exited the game after that series.
Hamilton averaged 9.7 yards on 16 first-half carries but didn't touch the football after halftime as the Cowboys went mostly with reserves.
Missouri State scored on a 29-yard field goal by Nathan Stokes with 40 seconds left in the third quarter and a 1-yard touchdown plunge by Jonathan Davis with 6:56 left.
