STILLWATER — It was a happy homecoming for the Oklahoma State Cowboys, who beat the Texas Christian University Horned Frogs 24-10 Saturday in front of a record-setting crowd of 59,638 at Boone Pickens Stadium.
Still, the offense for the Cowboys (5-1 overall, 2-1 in Big 12 play) is sputtering. It most certainly did in the opening quarter as starting quarterback J.W. Walsh threw two interceptions — granted one happened as he was hit while making his throw.
So, when OSU got the ball next, which came in the early moments of the second quarter, Enid senior Clint Chelf was inserted into the game. While on the first play he threw an interception, he was hit as he made his throw. However, after that drive, Chelf did a good job moving the Pokes, and finished the game 10-of-25 for 178 yards.
“We felt like we needed a spark on offense,” OSU coach Mike Gundy said. “At that time [J.W. Walsh's second interception], it was [the last straw]. I thought [Chelf] played pretty good. I'll have to watch the tape this week. I know the one interception he threw, he got hit. Then, there were a couple of throws that didn't look good, and I'm sure there's a reason for that. Overall, I thought he managed the game pretty well. There were different ways in which we had to attack them. In this game, Clint gave us some advantages in attacking their defense. We'll evaluate our offense this week, and our game play for the next game [next Saturday at Iowa State]. We'll see which direction we want to go.”
