4 Things To Ponder About OSU Football Two Games In

Oklahoma State’s 32-8 win over Central Arkansas on Saturday night at Boone Pickens Stadium in Stillwater may not have been the rout Cowboy fans expected.

The second half was much better than the first on offense, as OSU used big plays to pull away from the Bears.

Here are four things OSU can be excited about, or concerned about, two games into the season:

  1.  Mason Rudolph’s consistency isn’t quite where OSU coaches would like it to be.    He missed on several passes in the first half before finding his rhythm in the second half as OSU began to move the ball and make big plays.
  2.  Chris Carson’s big play ability was on display a couple times, with a 21-yard touchdown run, and an impressive leap of a UCA defender.    He’ll make more big plays as he gets comfortable and gets more chances.
  3. OSU’s defense was solid again, allowing only a flea flicker touchdown pass in the second half.    The Cowboys have a solid foundation two games into the season.
  4. The kicking game is suspect.   Ben Grogan did bounce back with two made field goals after missing two last week, but the Cowboys had two extra point attempts blocked in the second half.    Those things will need to be cleaned up before Big 12 play begins.

OSU is home again next Saturday, Sept. 19 to host Texas-San Antonio at 2:30 in Stillwater.
