“I mean, he's a very, very good kicker. He really takes you out of your punt return game and your kickoff return game a lot of times, because of how good a player he is. He's exceptional.”

FAIR DAY FOR ANDERSON

Bye weeks are officially over for the Cowboys, after their schedule featured two open dates in three weeks. OSU's game at Kansas on Saturday marks a stretch of eight games in eight weeks to finish off the season.

So how did the Cowboys take advantage of their final weekend off until December? Wide receiver Isaiah Anderson, a Wichita Falls product, went to the Texas State Fair. “It was a little cold out there, a little rainy, but I still had a good day,” Anderson said. “Spent all my money on food and rode a couple rides, so I got my money's worth.”

Anderson sampled several of the various interesting eats.

“I'm a big turkey leg man,” Anderson said, “but my favorite thing out there was the fried jambalaya. It was the first time I had had it, and it was actually really good.”

COWBOYS HAVE DOMINATED KU

As if KU's early season struggles don't suggest a decided OSU edge, recent series history also tilts heavily toward the Cowboys.

In the Big 12 era, OSU is 7-1 vs. Kansas, with KU's 2007 Orange Bowl team the only Jayhawk squad to beat the Cowboys, 43-28. That's OSU's second-best record against a Big 12 foe. The Cowboys are 15-1 against Baylor.
