STILLWATER, OKLA. (AP) - Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy says he’s suspended star wide receiver Justin Blackmon for one game after Blackmon’s arrest on a misdemeanor DUI charge.

Gundy announced the suspension Wednesday after the Cowboys’ practice. No. 20 Oklahoma State will play at Kansas State on Saturday.

Blackmon was arrested at 3:45 a.m. Tuesday on an interstate in Carrollton, Texas, after police used radar to determine he was driving 92 mph in a 60 mph zone.

An officer performed a field sobriety test on the 20-year-old Blackmon. Under Texas law, drivers under 21 can be arrested for having any detectable amount of alcohol in his or her system and Blackmon fell into that category.

Blackmon says he made a mistake and that he takes full responsibility for what happened.
