Oklahoma State will face Baylor Saturday evening in Waco.
When the Cowboys lost at home last year against the Bears, they ran for just eight yards total.
In the loss, Childs tallied only five yards. But last week, he had four touchdowns and 101 yards rushing against Pitt.
So, maybe this season Rennie Childs can lead the Cowboys to more than eight yards, and his team hopes so as well.
"He made a guy miss and outran him for 70 yards and that's what we brought him here to do,” said OSU head coach Mike Gundy. “It hasn't happened as much as it did his true freshman year. Hopefully, that will kick start us a bit and help us."
Quarterback Mason Rudolph added,
“He gets into a rhythm and he gets so many of those carries in a row that he starts chipping away. He runs so hard, man. He lowers his shoulder. Well, he's just a big dude, and he’s very calm, quiet guy, but sarcastic at times."
