ORLANDO, Fla. – On OSU’s first offensive play, Oklahoma State quarterback Spencer Sanders passed a pass for Tylan Wallace and gave the senior receiver his 200. Career Reception – and became the fifth player in cowboy’s history to hit the mark.
Wallace ended up with six receptions for 45 yards and stopped playing after halftime in the Cowboys’ 37-34 Cheez-It Bowl win on Tuesday at Camping World Stadium.
His early departure was discussed as a possibility in pre-game talks between Wallace, coach Mike Gundy and offensive coordinator Kasey Dunn. Gundy admitted that Miami quarterback D’Eriq King’s injury in the second quarter reinforced the decision.
« We had just spoken to (Wallace) that at some point we wanted to have some of the other players in the game who would be there next year, » said Gundy. “And we want to protect him. There are always things in mind that are happening. I’m not sure what happened to Miami’s quarterback affected us a little. I’m not saying we had a plan for an exact point in the game.
« Obviously he has a future that very few people have a chance for, so I and Coach Dunn were very protective of him. We made the choice back then to join some of the other players and compete against each other, so we just didn’t have to hold our breath in this situation. ”
« I definitely want to protect this kid, » said Dunn. « I told him early on when I went into the bowl, » I will protect you. I know you have a future in this game. « So it’s 100% up to me who played when. « . I told him before the game, even before we left the hotel, that I wanted to see Tay (Martin) in the second half and that Tylan should be ready to sit down. ”
Wallace ended his career behind Rashaun Woods (293 receptions), Justin Blackmon (253), James Washington (226) and Hart Lee Dykes (224). .
Already in the second quarter, 21: 7 behind, the crime was hit in Miami when King sustained an injury to his right knee. He was injured just moments after rushing to a touchdown that was negated by a suspension penalty. After the injury, Miami was held to a field goal.
King’s right knee seemed to buckle just before he was attacked by OS Sterling Tre Sterling. King immediately grabbed the knee and rolled on the floor in pain. Shortly before half-time, he was slowly helped into the locker room and later returned to the sidelines wearing street clothes and crutches.
By this point, King had completed 10 of 13 passes for 113 yards and one touchdown to start at 18 rushing yards.
N’Kosi Perry replaced him, finishing the 19-of-34 for 228 yards and two touchdowns, bringing the Hurricanes to a point in the final minutes.
Senior linebacker Malcolm Rodriguez is returning for the fifth time, he told Pokes Report and the OSU radio show ahead of Tuesday’s Cheez-It Bowl against Miami.
Rodriguez is a 5-foot-11, 220-pound wagoner product and a model of consistency right in the middle of defending the cowboys.
« I spoke to my family and the biggest thing was to come back and graduate, » said Rodriguez. « Since I changed my major so late, I should be ready next fall. So that was the big, important part. « . And I feel like I can work on some important points in my game. ”
He switched to linebacker last season and led the team with 103 tackles, which was fourth in the Big 12. He has been named the Leslie O’Neal Award winner of the team given to the defensive MVP.
This season, Rodriguez is second on the team with 81 tackles. He’s also got three sacks, two forced fiddling, and a fiddly recovery. Rodriguez began his career as a security guard.
The NCAA granted all players an additional year of eligibility due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Rodriguez likely won’t be the only OSU player taking advantage of the extra year.
Sterling, who is fourth year younger, announced after the game that he would return next season.
Other cowboys stars have chosen the NFL, however. Chuba Hubbard, Teven Jenkins and Rodarius Williams have all prepared for the draft. Dillon Stoner also announced that the bowl game would be his last.
