OSU coaches pleased with resilience of defense

In Oklahoma State's game against Central Michigan, they faced a quarterback in Cooper Rush, who threw off the Cowboy defense in the first half with his IQ and skill set. OSU's defense responded well overall racking up four sacks and intercepting rush once.

"Rushing the passer is tough with that guy because he is going to let it go at the last second. Couple times we brought pressure, he knew where the scramble lane was, you know. And if you're locked up man behind it, it's tough,” said Glenn Spencer, OSU defensive coordinator. “So, we have to do a better job of collapsing those scrambling lanes. Correctable stuff. There's so much for us to correct, but it's a win on the road against a good quarterback. And great tape to learn from."

"We gave up some big plays. But you're going to give up some yards against a quarterback like this. I mean, he's a good player and, in college, quarterbacks make a big difference. He throws the ball really nice. I was impressed wit he the way he sees coverages and he's, he can scramble. He moves around and it's hard to get your hands on him," said Mike Gundy, OSU Head Coach.

Aside from facing Cooper Rush, Oklahoma State held the Chippewas to only 78 total rushing yards.
