Oklahoma State Cowboys Game Notes
Alan Bowman completed 19 of 36 passes for 225 yards and three interceptions during Saturday’s 45-3 defeat versus UCF.
Bowman and the Cowboys let the game get out hand early as UCF jumped out to a 24-0 lead before halftime. Moreover, heavy rains ensued during the second quarter which took Oklahoma State completely out of their offensive game. UCF was able to load up against the run and Bowman wasn’t able to get the ball out to his receivers. Back-up QB Garret Rangel saw a little playing time but was not able to complete any of his three passing attempts. Oklahoma State will look to have a much better performance at Houston next week.
Houston Cougars Game Notes
Donovan Smith was 16-for-28 passing for 102 yards, two touchdowns and three interceptions during Saturday’s 24-14 defeat against Cincinnati. He also had 13 rushes for 88 yards.
Smith had a tough time against the Bearcats with a season-high three interceptions. He did salvage his fantasy performance with a season-high 88 rushing yards, but it wasn’t a good look to allow Cincinnati their first ever Big 12 conference win. Smith has been hot and cold in 2023 with 25 total touchdowns and 10 interceptions in 10 games. Houston will play Oklahoma State next week.
