It’s high noon...

Chuba Hubbard’s carries could be a problem against Kansas State ($):

Riley Gates with wrote about Chuba Hubbard and whether or not he would be able to keep up his production against Kansas State this weekend.

“That’s five more than I thought was too many,” head coach Mike Gundy said when asked about Hubbard having 37 carries against the Longhorns. “Trust me, it’s been a conversation. We want to keep him healthy, we want him to be fresh, but he’s clearly the best runner. So we do what we think we need to do to give us the best chance to score points. But it’s not like it’s not something that hasn’t been discussed.” {}

Grace Yochum earns offensive player of the week:

Cowgirl soccer’s Grace Yochum got her second career award this week as the Big 12’s offensive player of the week.

Yochum received Offensive Player of the Week honors after leading the league with six points over the weekend. The sophomore scored three goals on just four shots, including a brace in OSU’s 3-0 win over Kennesaw State and one goal in the Cowgirls’ 2-2 tie with SMU. The offensive outburst pushed Yochum into a tie for eighth place on the Big 12 leaderboard with five goals scored this year. This is Yochum’s second-career weekly award, after previously being named Freshman of the Week in 2018. {}

Spencer Sanders learned form loss ($):

Spencer Sanders found himself responsible for Saturday’s loss. The Athletic wrote about his reaction to the game.

“I gotta do better for this team,” Sanders told reporters. “I gotta do better for everybody. So if anybody wants to point fingers, you can point ‘em on me.”

When asked about that view Monday, Mike Gundy acknowledged his redshirt freshman is young, emotional and competitive. The head coach then grinned and joked that he’ll figure out a better way to cope as he gets older.

“He needs to learn to point fingers at other people,” Gundy said. “Spread the wealth. That’s what I do.” {The Athletic}
