SAN ANTONIO — Justin Blackmon caught two touchdown passes, including a 71-yard strike, and No. 16 Oklahoma State finished its first 11-win season with a 36-10 victory over Arizona in the Alamo Bowl on Wednesday night.

SAN ANTONIO — Justin Blackmon caught two touchdown passes, including a 71-yard strike, and No. 16 Oklahoma State finished its first 11-win season with a 36-10 victory over Arizona in the Alamo Bowl on Wednesday night.

Blackmon, the Biletnikoff Award winner as the nation's top receiver, set an NCAA record with his 12th straight game with at least 100 yards receiving and a touchdown. The sophomore caught nine passes for 117 yards in perhaps his last college game.

Brandon Weeden was 25 of 41 for 240 yards for Oklahoma State (11-2). It was the final game plan for Cowboys offensive coordinator Dana Holgorsen, who is leaving to become the coach-in-waiting at West Virginia.

Oklahoma State never trailed and scored at least 33 points for the 11th time this season.

Arizona (7-6) ended the year with five straight losses.

This last, lopsided defeat made Arizona's 7-1 record and No. 13 ranking in November seem like that was much longer ago. Nick Foles completed 32 of 50 passes for 280 yards and a touchdown, but he threw three interceptions, including one returned by Markelle Martin for a 62-yard score.

The Wildcats had their chances early. But six possessions inside Oklahoma State territory in the first half resulted in just one touchdown.

After Arizona couldn't convert a fourth down at the Cowboys' 29-yard line on its opening possession, Weeden found Blackmon practically uncovered down the sideline. So open was Blackmon that he pulled up before reaching the end zone and trotted parallel along the goal line before finally making the touchdown official.

Blackmon scored for a second time on a 3-yard pass in the third quarter, breaking the game open after Alex Zandejas' 42-yard field goal put Arizona back within two scores.

Illinois 38, Baylor 14

At Houston, Mikel Leshoure ran for 184 yards and three touchdowns as Illinois earned its first bowl victory since 1999, beating Baylor in the Texas Bowl.

The Illini spoiled the Bears' first bowl appearance in 16 seasons.

Maryland 51, East Carolina 20

At Washington, Ralph Friedgen ended his 10-year run at his alma mater with a victory over East Carolina in the Military Bowl.

The Terrapins forced four turnovers, and Da'Rel Scott ran for 200 yards.

New Maryland athletic director Kevin Anderson announced last week that Friedgen was being fired, effective after the bowl game, with the school buying out the final year of the 63-year-old coach's contract for $2 million.
