For the Oklahoma State Cowboys, there is seemingly no shortage of talent on the offensive side of the ball. Preparing to take the field in the Cheez-It Bowl against the Miami Hurricane, Tylan Wallace and Dillon Stoner headlined the group of receivers. However, it would be an unheralded name leading O-State on a Tuesday night.
From the onset of the contest, Brennan Presley made himself available downfield. Quickly realizing the opportunity, quarterback Spencer Sanders hurled the ball in the freshman’s general direction. Consistently coming down the ball, Presley crossed the goal line twice — both 30+ yard receptions — in the opening fifteen minutes of play. The effort helped OSU build a 21-0 lead at the close of the first quarter.
Previously, Presley accounted for two touches — a rushing attempt on November 7 and a catch late in the month on November 21. By the time the game ended, the Cowboy fan base became well acquainted with the freshman wideout. Finishing the outing with 118 yards and three touchdowns on just six catches, the youngster clearly has a bright future.
Despite allowing 19-unanswered points through the second and third quarters, the Cowboys maintained the lead from wire to wire. After trading scores in the final fifteen minutes of play, OSU capped the year off with a 37-34 victory over a non-conference opponent.
