Here’s what they had to say about coach Gundy:
“Mike Gundy is one of the most recognized names in college football and has shown a commitment to not only the football program, but to his community and to the young men who he coaches,” said Peach Bowl, Inc. CEO & President Gary Stokan. “Coach Gundy lives up to Bobby Dodd’s belief that coaching football is about more than just wins and losses. We’re proud to name him Coach of the Week.”
And interesting stat:
Stadium’s Brett McMurphy tweeted a neat stat this morning. Oklahoma State is third on the list for number of consecutive games scoring 30 points or more,
Consecutive games scoring at least 30 points:— Brett McMurphy (@Brett_McMurphy) September 19, 2018
Oklahoma State 9
Penn State 7
Appalachian State 5
Mississippi State 4
North Texas 4
They’ve done it nine games in a row. University of Central Florida leads the category with 15 and Oklahoma comes in behind them with 11. (Make that 10 total for Oklahoma State after this weekend.)

Against Boise State on Saturday, Jim Knowles finally got to show us what he was all about. Knowles talked to Max Olson about what exactly they did on defense on Saturday.
“We broke out some things,” Knowles said after the win. “We move Brailford around a little bit. We moved Calvin around a little bit. We moved our pass rush around. We got creative when it turned into a passing game, and that’s because we were so effective stopping the run. When we do that, I think we have the guys who can really light things up in the passing game.”
Bonus: Please keep the Iowa State Cyclones Women’s Golf team in your thoughts:
Our friends over at Wide Right Natty Light shared a report for Matt Campbell’s press conference this week. The team will wear a decal honoring Celia Barquin Arozamena. She was tragically found dead Monday morning on the Coldwater Creek golf course in Ames.
