Sam Houston State, 2-1, is ranked No. 15 in the latest NCAA Division I-AA poll. OSU coach Mike Gundy
said Rhett Bomar
, the former Oklahoma quarterback, is a perfect fit for the Bearkats' offense.
"Bomar helps them tremendously because he can make plays,” Gundy said. "Any time you play a team that has a quarterback like him who touches the ball every play you better be ready to play.”
Defensive coordinator Tim Beckman
said coaches take away black jerseys if a player has three consecutive sub-par performances. Last week, Beckman stripped all the defense's black jerseys that were awarded during fall camp.
After making some key plays in Saturday's win at Texas Tech, Beckman re-issued black jerseys to cornerback Jacob Lacey
, defensive end Nathan Peterson
and linebackers Patrick Lavine
and Chris Collins
Backup quarterback Bobby Reid
, who has declined interview requests "for a couple of weeks,” won't be sitting on the sidelines the entire game.
Offensive coordinator Larry Fedora
said he will continue to find ways to get Reid involved as a wide receiver, a role Fedora devised in the off-season for current starter Zac Robinson
. Reid played six snaps at wideout against Texas Tech.
"It will definitely evolve as we go,” Fedora said. "We have spent a lot of time and invested a lot of reps in that (two-quarterback) package. I want to use it.
