OSU football ended the 2015 season on a sour note with three straight losses, including a Sugar Bowl loss to Ole Miss; but against Southeastern Louisiana the Cowboys wouldn’t continue the streak with a 61-7 win.
Within four minutes, the Cowboys scored on a muffed punt, recovered a fumble and scored on a Chris Carson run. This pace slowed down but the Cowboy defense stopped the Lions on six straight drives.
Along with the stout defense and scoring offense, the special teams made itself know a couple of times; highlighted when Barry J. Sanders ran back a punt to the 1-yd. line, similar to a punt return his dad had when playing for OSU.
The Cowboys dominated the first half 31-7 and came back in the second half when LB Devante Averette stripped the ball but while trying to pick it up threw it backward where CB Ramon Richards caught it and ran into the end zone. The Cowboys continued the scoring through the second half and won 61-7.
The offense and defense of the Cowboys looked promising, but until they play better quality of teams we won’t truly know how good the offensive line or secondary are.
