STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) — After No. 24 Oklahoma State lost multiple senior receivers, most observers didn’t think much of the Cowboys’ group of inexperienced wideouts this year. But Tylan Wallace and Tyron Johnson among others have proven to be almost as dynamic as their predecessors so far. Both had career-high days in Saturday’s 55-13 victory over South Alabama. Wallace amassed 10 receptions for 166 yards and one touchdown, while Johnson hauled in five passes for 137 yards.
NORMAN, Okla. (AP) — Oklahoma has lost star running back Rodney Anderson for the season. The fifth-ranked Sooners have quality depth at the position. Trey Sermon, Marcelias Sutton, Kennedy Brooks and T.J. Pledger are ready to fill the void heading into this weekend’s game at Iowa State.
UNDATED (AP) — Iowa State quarterback Kyle Kempt is considered “day-to-day” with a knee injury and it is unknown whether he will play Saturday against No. 5 Oklahoma. Coach Matt Campbell says Kempt injured the MCL in his left knee in the fourth quarter of Saturday’s 13-3 loss to Iowa. He says the injury is not considered a long-term issue and the Cyclones dodged a “big bullet.” The game will be the Big 12 opener for both the Cyclones, who are 0-1, and the Sooners, who are 2-0.
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — No. 4 Ohio State will get a better opportunity to gauge its potential this week against No. 15 TCU. The Buckeyes have been offensively prolific in the first two weeks, ranking second nationally with 650 yards per game. Quarterback Dwayne Haskins Jr. has thrown for 546 yards with nine touchdowns. Acting coach Ryan Day says TCU’s experienced defense will pose a stiff challenge.
PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) — Rutgers freshman quarterback Art Sitkowski is feeling better and coach Chris Ash expects him to play this Saturday against Kansas. Sitkowski hurt his right shoulder in Saturday’s 52-3 loss at No. 4 Ohio State when sacked by Nick Bosa in the waning seconds of the first half.
