Seales, Sanders help No. 21 Oklahoma St. beat SE Louisiana
OKLAHOMA CITY - Jhajuan Seales caught two touchdown passes, helping No. 21 Oklahoma State roll past Southeastern Louisiana 61-7 on Saturday afternoon.
Seales finished with three catches for 61 yards.
Barry J. Sanders compiled 76 all-purpose yards and scored a touchdown. Sanders, whose father, Barry, won the Heisman Trophy for Oklahoma State in 1988, is a graduate transfer who played for Stanford last season. The younger Sanders scored on a 1-yard run in the first quarter and nearly scored again later in the quarter. He was stopped at the 1-yard line after weaving through the Lions for a 57-yard punt return.
Mason Rudolph completed 18 of 26 passes for 188 yards and two touchdowns for the Cowboys (1-0).
Kaelyn Henderson ran 13 times for 68 yards and a touchdown for Southeastern Louisiana (0-1).
Madre Harper recovered a muffed punt in the end zone for Oklahoma State's first points of the season. Chris Carson barreled through several Lions on a 9-yard touchdown run, and Seales stretched out for a 24-yard scoring grab to make it 21-0 with 8:10 left in the first quarter.
Henderson scored Southeastern Louisiana's only touchdown on a 26-yard touchdown run in the second quarter.
SE LOUISIANA: Very little. The Lions brought in a new offensive coordinator Matt Barrett from Georgia Southern, and they netted just 194 yards.
OKLAHOMA STATE: The Cowboys did what they were supposed to do against Southeastern Louisiana, an FCS program that went 4-7 last season.
SE LOUISIANA: The Lions play at Southern Utah.
OKLAHOMA STATE: The Cowboys will host Central Michigan. The Chippewas made the Cowboys work to escape with a 24-13 win in Mt. Pleasant, Mich., last year.
