oil coming from breather

I did a tune up on my Murray mower,Model 287707 B&S 14.5 hp engine.

When I Started it up oil came out of the breather hose.

Can anyone tell me what the problem might be.

Overfilled crankcase (oil); Fuel dumping into the crankcase and "overfilling" the crankcase; Incorrect viscosity oil; Inverted crankcase breather assembly; Air leak at the crankcase; Or, operating at extreme angle.
