In 2007, Weeden enrolled at Oklahoma State, and three seasons later, found himself as the starting quarterback for the Cowboys.

In 2011, fans of the program created a Heisman campaign featuring Weeden and receiver Justin Blackmon and the quarterback finished his career with the Cowboys in a 41-38 Fiesta Bowl win over the Stanford Cardinal.
