Amen Ogbongbemiga talks getting the Coronavirus:

During Oklahoma State’s last media availability. linebacker Amen Ogbongbemiga talked more about his experience with quarantining as one of the first student athletes to test positive for Covid-19.

“The first day was crazy,” Ogbongbemiga said. “I was sitting around a bunch of dudes and they heard me get on the phone with the health department. I hung up the phone slowly and they all looked at me like, ‘What happened?’ and I was like, ‘Get away from me.’ They ran and were like, ‘Bro, you got to go.’” {O’Colly}

Can the defense keep up the way they’re playing?:

The O’Colly wrote about the much-improved defense and if they will be able to keep it up through the rest of the season.

“Years ago, everybody played fast, teams have slowed down some,” Gundy said. “We still play fast. I don’t know what everybody else — Yurcich must be playing fast ‘cause he’s burning some bulbs out down there on their scoreboard at Texas, but it’s just changed over the last couple of years and defenses have made an adjustment.”{O’Colly}

Precautions become more important as first away game looms:

As Oklahoma State prepares to head for Lawrence for their first road game of the Covid-19 era, they will try to be as safe as possible.

Oklahoma State tight end Jelani Woods just hopes to have two seats to himself on the bus.

“More room to sleep,” Woods said.

At 6-foot-7 and 275 pounds, Woods needs his space for long bus rides. It was never much of an issue before, but this season it certainly won’t be either.

He’s going to get more than enough room. Try an entire row, maybe two or three.

The Cowboys will load eight buses as part of its travel convoy Friday and drive 280 miles to Lawrence, Kansas, for their first road trip of the season. {Oklahoman}
