STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) - After blocking a punt for the first time in his career, Oklahoma State's Zack Craig was a bit surprised when he was asked to try for another in the same game. He was even more shocked when he turned his second block into a touchdown.
Craig, a third-down linebacker when he's not serving as the Cowboys' special teams ace, says ``to get in the end zone was just nuts.''
Craig's two-block game was the latest standout performance on special teams for No. 22 Oklahoma State (7-3, 5-2 Big 12) heading into this Saturday's rivalry game at No. 14 Oklahoma (8-2, 6-1).
The Cowboys have scored special teams touchdowns in three straight games, with Craig's return following kickoff return scores the previous two weeks by Justin Gilbert and Desmond Roland.
