The Oklahoma State MVP Draft: Week 11 Recap

This thing just got a whole lot closer!

NCAA Football: Oklahoma State at Texas Christian Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

Week 11 is done and like the Cowboys season, our MVP Draft is nearly complete. All that’s left is a bye week, Bedlam, and a bowl game. Let’s take a look at how everyone did last week.

Oklahoma State

Offense: Rudolph had a nice day with 207 yards and a touchdown on 17/34 passing, plus 23 yards and two TDs on the ground. This week though, belonged to the running backs. Hill officially passed Thurman Thomas for most yards by a true freshman with 154 yards. I’m giving the point to Carson though. He has been great since returning from injury, and this week might have been his best performance since arriving in Stillwater. The 146 yards and a touchdown were nice on their own, but how he scored the TD (and the absolute trucking of defenders on his run in the 4th) are why he wins the point.

Defense: This one is between Sterns and Taylor. Sterns led the team in tackles with nine and added a TFL and a pass break-up. Taylor had five tackles, and two TFLs. I want to give him the point for the blocked extra point, but technically that falls under special teams, so I’m going to have to go with Sterns. That blocked kick was nice though! (first play in these highlights)

Special Teams: This is pretty simple; Grogan went one 1/2 on field goals. Sinor continued to show why we love him, by planting all three punts inside the TCU 20 yard line. Point Sinor.

Texas Christian

Offense: Neither Kyle Hicks or Kenny Hill played particularly well. Hicks had only 47 yards on 25 carries. That’s 1.9 yards a carry. Hill tossed for 166 yards and one TD on 18/27, but also threw two interceptions. He added 79 yards on the ground. He wasn’t great, but he did a lot more than Hicks did.
Defense: Texada and Orr had nearly mirror performances. Both had five total tackles (2 solo, 3 assisted). Texada also had a pass break-up. It’s Howard who wins the point though with his 8 tackle, .5 TFL, .5 Sack performance. He also forced a fumble and added a pass break-up.
Special Teams: Well this is awkward. Turpin had -8 yards on two punt returns and 26 yards on two kick-off returns. That does not deserve a point. However, Hatfield did nothing. I mean, literally nothing. Which is better doing nothing at all, or not being helpful? Point Turpin.

With that let’s check out the updated standings.

Cade - 32 points
Dustin - 31 points
Phillip - 31 points
Christopher/Kyle - 27 points
Joel - 26 points

Cade still holds the lead, but it shrinks to one point. Christopher/Kyle jumps Joel to get out of the basement for the week. With three more drafts to go, things are getting interesting!

Come back Thursday for another Bye Week Special Edition of the MVP Draft.
