Here is a look at Berry Tramel's Report Card for Oklahoma State's 59-38 loss to Arizona:
WES LUNT: B
Lunt played well for his first real collegiate competition. Lunt made a couple of poor decisions and a couple of poor throws, and the blitz-induced interception he threw in the fourth quarter was returned for a touchdown by Jonathan McKnight and effectively sunk OSU. But Lunt mostly stayed poised and delivered the ball on target. Lunt didn't get much help from his receivers. On Lunt's first interception, Tracy Moore fell down, giving two Arizona defenders free reign at the ball, and on Lunt's final pick, the ball ricocheted off the hands of OSU flanker Josh Stewart.
PASS DEFENSE: D
The Cowboys did a decent job of stopping Arizona's run game. But Wildcat receivers ran free all game long. When OSU produced a decent pass rush, quarterback Matt Scott quickly hit open receivers. When the Cowboys produced decent coverage, Scott waited patiently for a receiver to break open.
Lay aside the 167 penalty yards called against OSU. The Pac-12 crew didn't seem to have control of the game. Classic example – after the first quarter clock reached zero, Arizona snapped the ball a second or two later and scored a touchdown. It took replay review to correct the obvious. The referee was Shawn Hochuli, son of talkative NFL referee Ed Hochuli.
The Cowboy receivers were not good. Blake Jackson dropped two passes; Isiah Anderson dropped what would have been a 49-yard TD pass. Perhaps worse, Joseph Randle lost a first-quarter fumble, which squelched OSU momentum. Randle also lost a fumble a week ago against Savannah State, though it was negated by penalty.
The look of the Cowboys' white helmets, white jerseys and gray pants is fine, but it's the same combo OSU wore in Lubbock last November. With only 14 of the 48 combinations of the new-look uniforms used, let's see some others before we see reruns.
OFFENSIVE LINE: A
The Cowboy protected Lunt well. He mostly had plenty of time to throw and was not sacked. And it didn't come at a cost to the run game. OSU tailbacks combined for 196 yards on 33 carries.
Tucson is not exactly a picturesque city, but from above, it has its merits. Sitting high in Arizona Stadium, the view of the Santa Catalina Mountains at dusk was a vintage Arizona scene, and vintage Arizona is quite fetching.
