Special teams breaks it open for Cowboys

11/20/2010

Michael Harrison seems to have a knack for making his biggest plays when Oklahoma State needs them most.

The freshman receiver blocked a Kansas punt and scooped it up to score from 20 yards out, giving Oklahoma State a 34-14 lead that looks insurmountable for a Kansas offense that's been held scoreless in the third quarter.

Playing without Justin Blackmon at Kansas State earlier this season, Harrison hauled in a 13-yard touchdown on a third-down jump ball, filling Blackmon's void in the secondary to make the biggest play of the Cowboys 24-14 road win.

Making Harrison's play this week even bigger for the Cowboys was its timing. Oklahoma State's previous drive ended with a missed 50-yard field goal from Dan Bailey that did nothing to amp up what looks like a low energy level from the Cowboys in the second half.

Somebody needed to make a play on what hasn't been a very good day for Oklahoma State. Once again, it was Harrison.
