Grounding It Out With Desmond Roland

Oklahoma State fans got their wish last week when freshman running back Rennie Childs made his collegiate debut against TCU. This week, the cry was for more Childs. But Cowboys junior running back Desmond Roland was one of the most improved players in fall camp, and the junior from Dallas got his chance to show what he could do Saturday against Iowa State. He took advantage of it.

Against Mississippi State in the opener, Roland ran for 46 yards on 10 carries. At UTSA, he had five carries for 26 yards. In the loss at West Virginia there was the one long run and seven carries for 46 yards.
