Another game, another loss. Five consecutive to be exact. First time since 2005 (Gundy's first season as HC).
Despite that, we somehow came out with a somewhat positive vibe, not just for next season, but also for Bedlam.
That would mean some good things happened during the loss in Waco.
P Kip Smith
After a couple of early season shanks, Smith has been really solid, and the Baylor game might have been one of his best. The UCLA transfer had 8 punts for a avg of 43.4 yds, and OSU ended up with a solid net of 40+. On several occasions he kept Baylor from flipping the field.
LB Ryan Simmons
Despite the defense allowing almost 600 yards, Simmons tallied 13 tackles, including 9 solo and 1 for a loss, as well as a pass break up. Lord knows he should have, as the defense was on the field for 90 plays (22 more than the offense).
WR David Glidden
The man from Mustang pulled down 5 catches for 99 yards and a TD.
WR James Washington
The true freshman continues to impress, and he was really tough for Baylor's corners and safeties to handle. Washington registered 4 catches for 114 yards, none of them bigger than the beautiful 68 yard pitch and catch from Rudolph for a TD.
QB Mason Rudolph
The long awaited appearance of the 4 star true freshman did not disappoint. While committing a couple of rookie errors that did cost the Cowboys points (Baylor would score off both interceptions), he was never rattled and directed the offense well, when allowed. He finished 13-25 for 281 yards, 2 TD's, 2 INT's, and 3 sacks. His mobility made a difference, and he wasn't easy to bring down.
