Well, at least Barry Sanders was in the house? And the first 10 or so seconds of the game were exciting?

Still, let’s look back at Oklahoma State’s 42-6 win over Kansas before fully turning our attention to what should be an exciting stretch run.

The links

I lied. Let’s already look ahead to Texas with this Berry Tramel column.

A look at how the Cowboys made up for the loss of Josh Stewart.

Again, Justin Gilbert made the opening seconds of the game exciting.

News and notes, including video of Barry Sanders’ postgame speech to the Cowboys.

Three questions with that Barry Sanders guy. We’ll have the full Q&A up later today.

Berry’s report card. Like that he led off with the two-minute drill. That was a positive sign for an offense that went very vanilla for most of the day.

By the numbers includes stats on yards per carry, first-half shutouts and time of possession.

Answering the three questions

Will the offense put together back-to-back strong performances?

Not exactly. Mike Gundy and Mike Yurcich both admitted the Cowboys, by design, did not open up the playbook. And they were missing their best playmaker in Josh Stewart. We’ll find out soon if OSU’s performance at Tech, where the Cowboys were potent and balanced, was an exception or will become the rule down the stretch. Gundy and Yurcich didn’t seem concerned about the offense “taking a step back” against the Jayhawks.

What does the secondary look like?

Shamiel Gary missed the game with injury and Lyndell Johnson filled in nicely, coming up with eight tackles (three for loss). But corner Kevin Peterson returned and made an immediate impact, snagging a first-quarter interception that he returned 38 yards to help set up the Cowboys’ second touchdown.

More “special” teams?

Wrote this Saturday morning: “Is this a game where Justin Gilbert finally breaks free on a kickoff return?” Patting myself on the back now.

Key moment

The opening kickoff.

Player of the game: Tracy Moore

Let’s give it to the senior receiver, who tallied six catches for 77 yards and two touchdowns.

Up next

The Cowboys travel to Austin to face Texas Saturday afternoon.
