OSU-Savannah: What Did They Get Out Of It?

STILLWATER -- The Cowboys beat an outmanned Savannah State team 84-0 in what is the biggest margin of victory in the modern era of Oklahoma State football. So, what did they get out of it? We asked three Cowboys that question.

Cooper Bassett, DE (two tackles, one for loss): "I think a big thing is getting some of the first game jitters out. A lot of the procedure, running on the field, sudden changes and stuff like that, getting all the kinks out. Also, playing all the young guys because we are going to have to rely on some of those guys during the season. They are going to have to fill in. To see guys like Colby Ellis, who works so hard during the week and run down on kickoff, and to see guys like that that work so hard get some love is really good."

Joseph Randle, RB (six carries for 107 yards, two touchdowns): "We got a fresh start, 1-0. It doesn't matter who it is, it still counts. They came down to our place and we did what we were supposed to do."

Jeremy Smith, RB (five carries for 37 yards, three touchdowns): "Today was like coach said, we're not playing the opponent, we're playing ourselves. You know we had a lot of mistakes, some drop balls and other things we need to correct as a team. From a mental standpoint I think we are there, but there are other things we need to correct. We found out what some of those things are and we will get started on that this week."
