Chris Carson’s game winning catch on Thursday Night Football

The former OSU running back capped off a 27 carry, 118 yard performance with a game winning touchdown catch, though with a scary bobble.

“I couldn’t see, ” Carson said of the bobble catch. “The lights in the stands were just so bright that I couldn’t see the ball coming my way. But, I was glad that I hauled it in for a touchdown,” he said after the game.

“Cast Brothers” Devin Harper and Amen Ogbongbemiga have been source of strength for OSU defense.

Linebacker might have been the biggest question mark for the Pokes’ defense coming into this year. But even through a couple of injuries, it has been a strength.

As No. 21-ranked OSU travels to Texas Tech at 11 a.m. Saturday on FS1, the Cowboys’ linebacker corps’ biggest boost comes from two roommates wearing a cast on one hand. Ogbongbemiga and Harper have similar injuries that have formed a unique bond.

“We are the Cast Brothers,” Ogbongbemiga said. “Hopefully, we can get a little thing started. It’s just a joke, though. Hopefully, we call keep doing well and make a name for ourselves as a unit.”

The Cowboys’ linebackers entered the year with more questions than certainties. Instead, they’ve become a source of strength through five weeks. The Oklahoman

A Mike Holder appreciation post

The Tulsa World’s Bill Haisten wrote a column praising Mike Holder and contemplating his inevitable retirement, but Holder doesn’t appear to be slowing down.

If Holder eventually decides that he wants a contract extension, the educated guess here is that he would get it.

Recalling how he was targeted for criticism after Underwood quit in 2017, and how the fairly immediate university response was to recruit Weiberg away from Texas Tech, Holder said, “When you have a passionate fan base, it goes with the territory. If people didn’t care, you wouldn’t sell any tickets.”

Without Holder, Boone Pickens Stadium doesn’t look the same. There wouldn’t be 123 football suites that provide big revenue. There wouldn’t the Sherman E. Smith Training Center, the Greenwood Tennis Center, the track-and-field complex or the renovated Patterson Stadium for soccer. Tulsa World
