Kansas Football: Oklahoma State Defense Is the Weak-Link


Kansas hosts Oklahoma State on Saturday, Oct. 13th at 1:30 central time. Yesterday, we broke the down the Cowboys offense, here is a look at the teams defense.

Oklahoma State at 2-2 on the season average 55 points per game for the offense, and give up 31 points. The defense has given up a combined 100 points in the two Cowboys losses to Arizona and Texas. The team’s victories, only 24 points have been given up against Savannah State and Louisiana-Lafayette.

Daytawion Lowe leads the Cowboys in tackling with 21 on the year. The junior led the team last season in tackles with 97 and hasn’t missed a beat yet for head coach Mike Gundy’s team. Lowe is a sideline to sideline player with a non-stop motor.

Ryan Robinson has one and a half sack on the season, tops on the team. Junior Shaun Lewis is another big time player for the Cowboys defense at an outside linebacker position. Lewis has made 17 tackles and three and a half tackles for loss.

This Cowboys team doesn’t force many turnovers. Just three forced fumbles and three interceptions. This could bode well for Kansas who have issues with coughing the ball up.
