Reynolds Stadium. First pitch is scheduled for Noon.
After winning a lengthy QB competition with Hawaii grad transfer Dru Brown, Sanders stepped into the spotlight Friday night and completed 19 of 24 passes for yards and three touchdowns, while also rushing for yards on 13 carries.
I thought he had enough energy to bring a lot to our team but not so much that he got out of control. I think that's important to play the position.
We'll see how he develops as the season goes on, but we were pleased with what we were able to get out of him last Friday night.
Oklahoma State scored on all five of its drives in the first half, four of them touchdowns. The field goal it settled for, a yarder by Matt Ammendola early in the second quarter, came only after a Sanders pass to Tylan Wallace in the end zone on third down was reversed from a touchdown to an incomplete pass following a video review that showed Wallace's foot came down out of bounds.
OSU then scored touchdowns on its first two drives of the second half, not needing to punt until remained in the third quarter. Brown ended up getting just two snaps, handing off the ball both times in the final minute to drain the clock.
Walsh had in He had individual rushes of 23 yards, 12, 9, 21, 8 and a high of 30 in the fourth quarter, and even had one highlight-reel play where he completely leapt over a defender. Gundy was slightly concerned about a couple of the hits he took but wasn't about to limit Sanders in any way.
We just got to let him play. Gundy noted that was an important part of the job for an Oklahoma State quarterback.
It's safe to say there won't be nearly as much deliberation when determining the starter for the Cowboys' home opener on Saturday against McNeese. So I wasn't really surprised, because he's played in high school at such a high level, in really, really competitive games.
That obviously helped him some, in my opinion. All rights reserved About Us. The material on this site may not be reproduced, distributed, transmitted, cached or otherwise used, except with the prior written permission of NJ.
