There was a lot going on at Boone Pickens Stadium on Saturday afternoon in OSU’s first game of 2016, but here were six numbers that stuck out to me (most of them participation-related) in Game 1.8: Twenty freshmen – 12 redshirts and eight true – played on Saturday. The eight freshmen are as follows:Calvin BundageMadre HarperJustice HillA.J. GreenDillon StonerObi ObialoMax AllanChance CookThat’s pretty impressive considering how much depth and how many veterans this squad was returning.1: Freshman cornerback Madre Harper recovered a fumble in the end zone on OSU’s opening punt, marking a touchdown on his first career touch. I wonder how many times that has happened. Can’t be many, especially for OSU.2: Vincent Taylor’s blocked field goal in the third quarter was the second block of his career. He’s making hay on his preseason prediction for himself.last_img
