Hard to defend
by Brandon Chatmon
Oklahoma State ranks No. 1 in passing offense, No. 2 in scoring offense, No. 2 in total offense after three games under first-year offensive coordinator Dana Holgorsen.
And running back Kendall Hunter isn’t surprised.
“If we all come together as one unit, anything is possible in this offense,” he said. “Once they key on something, the other will open up.”
Hunter has been a main reason for the Pokes offensive success with 60 carries for 473 yards (7.88 yards per carry) and six touchdowns. The senior averages 20 carries and 157.67 yards per game.
The emergence of Justin Blackmon on the outside combined with Brandon Weeden’s excellence behind center could help Hunter become even more explosive in Big 12 play. If Weeden continues to make defenses play for trying to stop Hunter and Blackmon continues to win one-on-one battles, thus forcing safety help, the running lanes will reopen for Hunter.
