INSTANT RECAP: OSU 56, UTSA 35

We saw what we should have expected given the Roadrunners' weakness, but did we really learn anything?

For everyone getting all gaga over J.W. Walsh's passing performance...take a chill.

For everyone getting all worked up over the defense...take a chill.

The only other team that may display a worse pass defense than UTSA will come to Stillwater next week. Walsh did make some really good throws, twice had 10 completions in a row, and broke Brandon Weeden's single game completion % record.

The score was 42-7 at the end of the 3rd quarter. UTSA, which does NOT have a wallflower offense, scored some quick points against the 2nd and 3rd string defense.

What did concern me was our defense's struggles on the perimeter in the first 3 quarters. Need to get that cleaned up before Big 12 play.

Offensively, how could OSU struggle so mightily running the ball? No problem throwing, as the aforementioned Roadrunners' secondary was not going to offer much resistance.

A little like Mississippi State, we saw some good stuff and we saw some things that need attention.

The only real disaster? Cincy laid 26 points...he's ready to fire Glenn Spencer and kick Ryan Simmons off the team.

GO POKES!!!
