OSU football notebook: Backfield in motion: Pokes find balance

For a lifelong OSU fan like tight end Cooper Bassett, Saturday’s touchdown catch provided a new life highlight.

"On the field, I can’t really describe what I was feeling,” said Bassett, from Tuttle. "It’s an awesome feeling.”

Quarterback Zac Robinson saw it coming, peering at the defense before the snap.

The play called for both tight ends, Bassett and Wilson Youman, to break down the middle of the field, forcing Bears safety Jordan Lake to choose one. Lake chose Youman.

"Cooper Bassett was my second progression,” Robinson said, "and I looked up before the snap and thought, ‘There’s a good chance Cooper may catch a touchdown here if they play it the way I think they might.’

"Sure enough, he did.”
