Gundy: 84-0 blowout may have hurt Oklahoma State

STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) — Can an 84-point blowout be bad for the winning team? Just ask Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy.

The Cowboys (1-1) put up the gaudy shutout in their opener against Savannah State. Many starters were on the field for only about a dozen plays, and Gundy believes there was a carryover that led to the 59-38 loss at Arizona last week that ended a two-year run in the Top 25, the program's longest ever.

The Cowboys had such an advantage against Savannah State that most starters didn't play beyond the first quarter.

When it came time to review the game tape and correct mistakes, there simply wasn't much to look at for the starters who'd be called on for much bigger roles against Arizona.
