STILLWATER, Okla. — Jeremy Smith is shattering his reputation as the short-yardage specialist for No. 6 Oklahoma State.
After scoring on runs of 74 and 30 yards in a victory against Texas on Saturday, Smith now has the three longest rushes of the season for the Cowboys (6-0, 3-0 Big 12).
Smith is using his powerful, downhill running style to thrive as the backup to starter Joseph Randle. The Cowboys usually start out games with Randle, then bring in Smith once the defense starts to show fatigue.
Heading into Saturday's game at Missouri (3-3, 1-2), Smith has scored a touchdown in 10 straight games. That's the longest such streak at OSU since Barry Sanders scored in 15 in a row in 1987 and '88, his Heisman Trophy season.
