OSU looking to clean up penalties

On Thursday, Oklahoma State defeated Central Michigan 24-13. Many people thought this game would be more Cowboy heavy, but the Chippewas made it a game. For the Pokes coaching staff, a few first half penalties prevented them from opening up the offense early.

"We never really got to it in the first half, but we should have. And it just didn't pan out that way because of penalties,” said Mike Gundy, OSU Head Coach. “The last three series, I believe we ended up in long yardage situations because of penalties. And it's difficult to be a little more open when you're behind the chains like we were."

"Would have been better if we could have kept it moving. I mean, the first couple times we did it we just, one we jumped offsides. We had them. half the team was on the other side of the field and those things are going to happen. You got to minimize those, but at times the tempo was good. The important thing is to get more plays in the first half and it could have went faster. Moving the ball is critical. Getting first downs. Playing fast. It's all about snaps and you want more of them,” said Mike Yurcich, OSU Offensive Coordinator.

Now the Cowboys look to regroup and prepare for their home opener next Saturday against Central Arkansas.
