Oklahoma State football: Josh Stewart, Charlie Moore step up to fill Cowboys' WR void

by John Helsley Published: October 20, 2012

“They did that very well.”

The other Moore – Charlie Moore – has reappeared as a big-play option. A spring sensation, he'd been quiet during this regular season, until the injuries hit Anderson and Tracy Moore last week at Kansas.

Immediately, Moore provide the signature highlight in Lawrence, a 72-yard pass and run for a touchdown that stood as OSU's longest play from scrimmage this season – before Saturday.

“Maybe we can get 76 next week,” Moore said with a grin.

Maybe indeed.

Much like at KU, Moore's big play gave the Cowboys – and Cyclones – a jolt Saturday.

On the play, Walsh rolled to his right, buying time for Moore to blow past his defender with a double move. Running clear, all Walsh had to do was deliver, which he did.

“We practice it a lot,” Moore said. “It was a perfect call. With J.W. getting out there, a quarterback who can run, he's going to have space and he's going to give me time to make a double move and get open.

“Just a little pump and go.”

Said OSU offensive coordinator Todd Monken: “We've had it in for five weeks, about time we got it called.”

Wrong time for Iowa State.

“We came in at halftime and the difference was a big play, the double-move play” said Cyclones coach Paul Rhoads. “It was a well-conceived play.”

For the Cowboys offensively, the difference was the passing game.

Crisis averted.

“Me and Charlie always talk,” Stewart said. “‘We've got a lot of people out and we've got to go, we've got to really step up.'

“We're just really trying to step up for those guys who were missing.”
