MVP Draft Recap: Week 4

Well, Saturday sucked. However, it’s not time to throw in the towel quite yet. The College Football Playoff dreams may be dead for the Cowboys, but Oklahoma State still has a lot to play for.

Along a similar line, our pickers still have plenty to keep picking for. Speaking of, I’m still not sure what to do for both the first place and last place finishers. If you have any ideas, send ‘em my way!

Now, let’s move on to the MVPs from Saturday’s game.

Oklahoma State Cowboys

Offense

Despite the humbling game, plenty of players had a good showing. Mason Rudolph still threw for 398 yards on 22 completions and two TDs. However, his two INTs and a lost fumble means he won’t get the point this week.

Justice Hill had 25 carries for 102 yards and a score, but it wasn’t quite enough.

Marcell Ateman had six catches for 100 yards, but he wasn’t the leading receiver this week.

Therefore, my offensive MVP is James Washington.

“The President” had six catches for 153 yards and an 86-yard touchdown pass to give the Cowboys an early lead.

Defense

It was Week 3 MVP Chad Whitener who led the Cowboys in tackles against the Horned Frogs with nine total, but this week’s MVP wasn’t far behind.

Tre Flowers had five tackles (four solo) from his safety spot for Glenn Spencer’s defense. He also intercepted Kenny Hill and stopped a TCU drive dead in its tracks.

TCU Horned Frogs

Offense

This one was simple. Kenny Hill all the way! Just kidding. However, the QB did have a respectable day, 22-of-33 for 228 yards, a touchdown and an interception. However, with the explosive and elusive Kyle Hicks out for the game, TCU needed backup RB Darius Anderson to have a good day, and boy, did he.

Anderson rushed 26 times for 160 yards and three TDs, including a 42-yard dagger to slam the door on the Cowboys. He also added four catches for 41 yards, giving him 201 all-purpose yards on the afternoon. Ouch!

Defense

Travin Howard led the team in tackles with eight total, seven solo. However, right behind him was senior safety Nick Orr.

Orr had six tackles against the Cowboys, five of which were solo. He also picked off Jalen McCleskey’s pass to end the Cowboys’ drive that would have cut the game to one score and killed the Cowboy momentum.
