"It's my job to get them the ball and it's their job to make plays after the catch."
Cooper is OSU's second-leading receiver, while Harrison and Anyiam seemed to be on the verge of breakouts, combining for seven catches, 92 yards and two touchdowns against Lafayette.
The Cowboys will still feature Justin Blackmon, the nation's leading receiver. But if Cooper and/or Anyiam can't go in Lubbock, it'll be up to Bowling, Chelf, Tracy Moore and Isaiah Anderson to balance out the passing attack and make the Red Raiders reconsider extra attention on Blackmon.
OSU could also look at involving running backs Kendall Hunter and Joseph Randle as receivers. Randle, a true freshman, has proven more than capable in that role. His 11 receptions rank fourth on the team and his 146 receiving yards trail only Blackmon and Cooper.
"It's just another thing we can throw into our bag and use to our advantage," Weeden said. "With the guys who are dinged up, they can catch it out of the backfield, get more carries, whatever it may be.
"It's good to have both those guys back there."
