OSU's Rashaun Woods prefers playing to talking

(Stillwater-AP) -- Oklahoma State's Rashaun Woods appreciates a lake teeming with fish. He understands a one-on-one matchup with a cornerback.

What Woods doesn't like is chatting with the media -- he prefers to let his play do the talking.

And that could hurt his chances at winning any of the honors worthy of his considerable receiving talent.

Woods will step into the spotlight Saturday when the 14th-ranked Cowboys go for their first three-game winning streak over in-state rival Oklahoma.

Woods is third in the nation in receiving yards per game with 114-point-one. Another dominant performance against the nation's top-ranked team would give Woods an edge for the Biletnikoff Award for the nation's best receiver, even perhaps All-America honors.
