Averette Says Richards Owes Him A Pizza

Devante Averette saw nothing but green turf in front of him when he stripped Southeastern Louisiana quarterback D'Shaie Landor of the ball. Instead the play resulted in teammate Ramon Richards scoring for the Cowboys.

Oklahoma State linebacker Devante Averette saw his opportunity to scoop and score early in the third quarter of the Cowboys season-opening victory over Southeastern Louisiana. But the senior from Detroit forgot one thing, the football.

After forcing Southeastern Louisiana quarterback D'Shaie Landor to fumble early in the second half, Averette tried to pick up the loose football but instead bobbled it. The football was bouncing out of bounds, which would have given the ball back to the Lions since Averette had never gained possession of the ball.

But that's when Averette channeled his inner Chris Paul. Listen as he tells how the play resulted in a Cowboys touchdown.
