Bulldogs waste little time blasting away at OSU defense

STILLWATER, Okla. -- Mark Richt has the reputation of trying to be "cute" with his running game by using various trick schemes.
The Bulldogs showed a heavy dose of that in their first drive as they marched 80 yards for a touchdown capped by a 5-yard toss from Joe Cox to Michael Moore for an early 7-0 lead.
Three different Bulldogs took snaps from center on the drive -- Cox, backup quarterback Logan Gray and Brenden Smith on a "Wildcat" play.
Taking the lead was paramount for the Bulldogs. And they also showed enough different looks to give new Oklahoma State defensive coordinator Bill Young something to think about as his team comes to the sideline.
