OSU faces another upstart program Saturday, with Football Championship Subdivision opponent Lamar coming to Boone Pickens Stadium in its fourth season since a 20-plus-year hiatus from football.
In their first two games, the Cardinals blew out Division II's Oklahoma Panhandle State 75-0 and lost 27-14 on the road at Louisiana Tech in a game where they trailed by just three points early in the fourth quarter.
What's the scouting report on Lamar?
“They are spreading it out (on offense) and looking to the sideline and getting plays and play fast and try to run the ball,” Gundy said. “So it will be a good week for us. Our guys, we have got areas we need to improve in.
“We have got to become better tacklers and certainly have got to be more disciplined and stay onsides. And offensively, we have to be able to get the ball thrown downfield and play fast.”
