Oklahoma State football notebook: Depleted receiving corps limiting Joseph Randle in passing game

Joseph Randle had five catches for 37 yards against TCU, his best receiving performance since he caught eight balls for 70 yards against Arizona in Week 2.

Lockett has 29 catches for 453 yards and three touchdowns this season and averages 29.7 yards per kick return.


The past three Saturdays, the Cowboys have worn a new or altered helmet.

Against Kansas, the gray helmet featured a white OSU logo with orange trim. Then the orange helmet with the Pistol Pete logo debuted against Iowa State. And last week against TCU, the black helmet sported a gray “Phantom” Pistol Pete logo.

Gundy said he often isn't told about all the uniform changes, though he did voice his desire for an orange helmet. And he thought the all-black uniform worn against TCU was particularly sharp.

Gundy did hint, however, that we probably haven't seen the last new or tweaked helmet.

“They've got another one coming out,” Gundy said. “I don't know what it is, but I heard them say it. They're going to change them kind of consistently.”


Former Cowboy quarterback Brandon Weeden took to Twitter during the TCU game last week to express a bit of support and frustration, tweeting “I'm getting sick of @JRAN_1 (Randle) running his tail off and no one helping him up off the ground.”

Randle was clearly a bit busy when the message was posted, but still felt the love after the game.

“I had like 500 (new) followers,” Randle said. “I was like, ‘Dang, thanks Weeden.' Weeden has always been a good teammate, and I'm happy he's doing well in the NFL.”
