OSU-FAU Game Notes

With linebacker Chris Collins' defensive touchdown and the 70-yard score by Dantrell Savage the number of Cowboys scoring this season is up to 13. Twelve Cowboys have scored touchdowns and Jason Ricks is now 3-of-4 on field goals and a perfect 18-for-18 on extra points. Last year OSU was 23-of-24 on extra points for the entire season.

Better Blocker
Wide receiver Adarius Bowman credited downfield blocking from his fellow wide receivers D'Juan Woods and Ricky Price for his 69-yard touchdown catch and run. The OSU wide receivers have been outstanding in their blocking so far this season causing us to ask Bowman how good a blocker was he at North Carolina before transferring to OSU. "Let's just say I'm a better blocker now," said Bowman.

Lots of Recruits
This was the biggest turnout of recruits in the young season. Prospects are allowed to accept up to three tickets to the game as unofficial visitors on campus. There were 27 prospects on hand for the FAU game including Norman star wide receiver and cornerback Ryan Broyles. Broyles, who lists OSU as his leading school, was the star in the Tigers win over Enid on Friday with two touchdowns and an interception. Broyles has visited Texas A&M officially, will visit South Carolina next week, and has said he will also visit Texas Tech and Oklahoma State.

Verbal commitments Kenny Alexander and Jamie Blatnick were also on hand. Alexander is a linebacker from North McKinney High School in Texas and Blatnick is a offensive and defensive lineman from Celina, Texas. Other notables on the list included Broyles' junior teammate at Norman and fellow wide receiver and corner Chika Madu, Putnam City North kicker and punter Stephen Hoge, Foyil wide receiver Taylor Antle (the son of former Cowboy Rick Antle), Celina defensive lineman Troy Franklin, and offensive lineman Steven Good and safety Keon Furtch from Paris, Texas.
