Nobody quite capitalizes on turnovers like the Cowboys.
They’ve forced at least one in 17 of their last 18 games, and over the last eight years they’ve won 92 percent of their games win they win that battle.
That was the case Saturday against the Jayhawks as they forced three take aways, and had a goal line stand to add with it.
“Really the ball was supposed to end up in Devante’s hands because he was the one who got Sterns attention, but I was in the right place at the right time and the ball somehow got in my hands,” said Vincent Taylor, OSU defensive tackle.
“I’m going to try and tell those guys let’s not do that again,” said Mason Rudolph, OSU quarterback. “I know Coach Gundy was about to have a brain aneurysm, but they pulled it off. Big time momentum swing for us. Great job of Jarrell, Vincent and Sterns taking care of the ball.”
“We are becoming the lateral kings,” said Mike Gundy, OSU head football coach. “I’m guessing we’ll probably make national media. I was ok with one. I’m not sure how many we actually lateraled because I lost sight of the ball. I vote for one lateral, and then tuck it away, and get what you can get. It’s almost like Vili and Mote have been teaching them how to play rugby. The turnovers were very important. Nice play by D.Q (DeQuinton Osborne) at an important part of the game. I think a ten point game when he makes his interception on the all drop look.”
“I didn’t know what was going on,” said Devante Averette, OSU linebacker. “I just saw him running with the ball. He looked good! He looked like a big fullback. It was pretty impressive. Definitely pretty impressive.”
As you can tell there were some mixed reviews on that lateral interception.
We’ll see if they can stick to that one going forward.
