Gundy recently announced that true freshman Ben Grogan would kick field goals and extra points and that Smith would be responsible for kickoffs.
Gundy also said Saturday that he does not expect kicker Bobby Stonebreaker, who had previously been competing with Grogan and Smith for their respective jobs, to return to the team. The coach said last week when announcing Grogan as the kicker that Stonebreaker was “not with us right now.”
GUNDY ‘PLEASED' WITH ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING
The preseason Associated Press poll was released Saturday, with the Cowboys coming in at No. 13.
Gundy said his feelings on the ranking are the same as when his squad was picked to win the Big 12 in the preseason media poll and was ranked 14th in the preseason USA Today coaches' poll.
“It obviously shows people now have a lot of respect for Oklahoma State football,” Gundy said. “The players that are on this team worked hard to get to this point, and the players before them had worked hard. So we're pleased that people see us as a quality football program, and obviously you've got to play all the games.”
