Week 1 recaps

• Pittsburg State 45, Northeastern State 6:
The Gorillas scored 45 unanswered points to start the game, thanks in large part to 582 yards of total offense. Running back Jeff Seybold ran for 132 yards and a touchdown on six carries, and Pittsburg State quarterback Anthony Abenoja threw for three touchdowns while also running for a score in the fourth quarter.

• Missouri Southern 52, Central Oklahoma 38: A typically run-first team, Missouri Southern used a balanced offensive effort (241 rushing yards, 232 passing yards) to turn back the Bronchos, who did get 169 yards and four touchdowns on the ground from tailback Josh Birmingham. Also, the Lions capitalized on three UCO turnovers.

• Washburn 58, Nebraska Kearney 13: Kearney was within 10-6 early in the second quarter, but Washburn responded with 41 straight points to put the game on ice. Willie Williams had two interceptions for Washburn, who capitalized on seven turnovers by the Lopers.

• Missouri Western 26, Central Missouri 23: There were three lead changes in the fourth quarter, with Missouri Western going ahead for good on Reggie Jordan’s 5-yard touchdown reception from quarterback Travis Partridge with 14 seconds left. Partridge passed for 198 yards and three touchdowns while also racking up 57 yards on the ground.

• Northwest Missouri State 45, Saginaw Valley State 24: The third-ranked Bearcats used 181 rushing yards and 285 passing yards form Trevor Adams to win the top-25 showdown against No. 18 Saginaw Valley.

• Emporia State 43, Fort Hays State 13: Brent Wilson, a former Ponca City quarterback, led the Hornets with 301 yards and three touchdowns through the air. He also had 74 yards and two touchdowns on 13 rushes.

• Lindenwood 24, Lincoln 22: The Lions were squarely in control, leading Lincoln 24-3 in the third quarter. Lincoln, however, rallied and got to within two with 18 seconds left. The Blue Tigers, though, couldn’t recover the ensuing onside kick. Lindenwood quarterback Dillon Miller finished 34 of 52 for 363 yards and two scores.

• Truman 40, Southwest Baptist 37: Truman won the battle of former conference foes with a 39-yard field goal by Derek Koon with six minutes left in the game. The two teams combined for 918 yards of total offense.

  • Sooners shifting several positions

    Experience comes from encountering the same things in the same ways over and over again. Oklahoma’s Geneo Grissom and Julian Wilson have that at defensive end and nickleback in bunches.
    However, both will be seeing new things when practice begins. Grissom is moving to outside linebacker. Wilson will be getting a look at cornerback as his senior season begins

  • Lindley, Tom.jpg Better police needed for college teams enticed to cheat

    The NCAA once cracked down on colleges that went too far luring top prospects, then it targeted teams that lathered players with special treatment. That was until the NCAA's get-tough approach backfired, rendering it ineffective and creating an opportunity for those who want to play dirty.

  • Peterson.jpg Cowboy quandary: OSU defense trying to replace seven starters

    A year after the best defensive team in the Mike Gundy era, the questions now surround how those few returning starters and second-year defensive coordinator Glenn Spencer can maintain that high level of efficiency.

  • Really one true champion?

    I decided to spare the colleagues in front of me – and myself from making a scene – by holding back flipping my table at the Big 12 Conference Football Media Days in Dallas.
    I had become exhausted by the constant use and misrepresentation by the Big 12 with their moniker of “One True Champion.” If they are going to live with the slogan, then they need to abide by that slogan.
    Perhaps its a simple case that they are keeping constant with the poor math of the 10-team Big 12 Conference.

  • Hill expected to be used in multiple facets

    The picture became a little clearer recently of how Big 12 Conference Newcomer of the Year Tyreek Hill will be utilized in the Oklahoma State offense.
    And the picture is rather wide.

    Tiger Woods finished near bottom last weekend at Royal Liverpool, drawing out his drought of major tournament wins. Despite the disappointing showing, Woods' return to form remains a matter of when, not if.
