OSU survives sloppy game in Kansas

(Continued)

LAWRENCE, Kan. — Charlie Moore got OSU back on the board in the third quarter when he caught the ball just past the line of scrimmage, broke a tackle and raced up the sideline for a 72-yard touchdown — OSU’s longest play this season from scrimmage. It was his first touchdown since scoring against Tulsa last season in garbage time.

“It was just a base play in our system. ... Josh Stewart made a great block on the other side of the field and Charlie is really fast when he gets going,” Gundy said. “He is strong, so once he got out there I was sure they would have a hard time catching him.”

Kansas attempted to make a late comeback behind backup freshman quarterback Michael Cummings, who came in for starter Dayne Crist in the fourth quarter as a change of pace. Cummings put together KU’s first scoring drive early in the fourth by completing 3 of 4 pass attempts for 41 yards — capped by a 21-yard touchdown pass to Jimmay Munine.

“They were running the same plays we had been working on for two weeks. So we knew the looks but (Cummings) did a great job coming in and making big plays,” said OSU defensive end Nigel Nicholas, who had seven tackles and a sack.

On KU’s next drive the Jayhawks cut the lead to 20-14 with a two-play, 73 yard drive that took just 42 seconds to score. Aided by a 15-yard face mask penalty, KU got a 28- and 30-yard rush by running back James Sims — the second going for a touchdown.

Kansas had another shot in the final minutes to claim the lead, but OSU's defense came up with a big fourth-down play in OSU territory to force the turnover and help milk the clock.

Oklahoma State will now turn its attention to Iowa State and Homecoming on Saturday at Boone Pickens Stadium.

    When Claremore’s Matt Whatley takes his place behind the plate tonight in the Oklahoma Coaches Association Large School East-West All-State baseball game, the former Zebra catcher will be right at home.
    Whatley, who started four years as the catcher for the Zebras, finds his final high school baseball game taking place in his future college ballpark.
    Last November, Whatley and his long-time friend, Bryce Howe, signed NCAA Division I baseball scholarships to play for the Oral Roberts University Golden Eagles.
    Tonight, those dreams come true for Whatley and Jenks outfielder Cadon Owens, who will be joining his former Bearcats teammate on the East squad. Also, Verdigris' Ryan Skalnik will start at third base for the Large East All-State team.
