1988 Mini Reunion
Barry Sanders, the 1988 Heisman Trophy winner and NFL and College Football Hall of Fame tailback, returned to Stillwater with his family for the game. Sanders enjoyed it with several former teammates, including All-American wide receiver Hart Lee Dykes, defensive back Joe King, and former War Pigs (offensive linemen) Chris Stanley, Jason Kidder and Mike Wolfe. It was a mini-reunion of the 1988 Holiday Bowl team.
The Consistency of Woods
How's this for consistency out of a freshman quarterback? Donovan Woods has scored a rushing touchdown in seven of the eight games this season. He has now thrown for a touchdown in the last seven games.
Nine Out of 10 Is Good
Vernand Morency, in part because of a stingy OU defense and partly because the scoreboard dictated the Cowboys throw the ball, had his nine-game streak of 100-plus yard games broken Saturday. Morency finished with 92 yards on 17 carries with two touchdowns. It was a solid game for Morency, but not a member of the century club.
Only the Deep Snapper Injured
There was only one injury for the Cowboys in the game as deep snapper Jacob Dressen injured his foot or ankle on the first punt of the game. Dressen had the injury taped and continued to snap. He should be OK to continue, but won't be helping much on covering kicks. His snaps during the game remained consistent.
Plenty of Recruits Make the Early Start
We know of 31 prospects that were at the Bedlam game as guests of Oklahoma State for an unofficial visit. There were a number of players that have already commited to the Cowboys – Garland, Texas kicker and punter Matt Fodge, Sulphur linebacker Eric Preast, Irving, Texas offensive lineman Chris Hall, and Vinita offensive lineman Noah Franklin.
Alief Hastings defensive tackle Vince Oghobaase was at the game with his mother. Oghobaase is set to make some other visits including Miami (Fla.), but is showing a strong preference toward Oklahoma State. He had earlier made an official visit to OSU the weekend of the SMU game. Some of the other top prospects attending were Edmond Santa Fe athlete Reggie Smith, Carl Albert offensive lineman Dain Wise and Midwest City athlete LaRon Moore.
Out of state prospects included Littleton, Colo., quarterback Zac Robinson; Arlington (Mansfield Summit), Texas, running back Kestahn Moore; Vernon, Texas running back Anthony Hall, and Kansas City defensive lineman Corey Meachum.
Edmond Memorial center and deep snapper Zach Allen has told the OSU staff that he is leaning toward coming to Oklahoma State to deep snap. His teammate Cole Reynolds is strongly considering coming to OSU as a walk-on punter.
