Cowboys running back Carson looking to biuld on solid debut

BY foxsports • September 8, 2015

Chris Carson received plenty of preseason accolades for Oklahoma State, but sooner or later, he needed to prove his worth on the field.

That's exactly what he did on Thursday night against Central Michigan. Now, he looks to build on that success.

Carson gained 89 yards on 21 carries in the Cowboys' 24-13 victory at Central Michigan last Thursday.

"I thought Chris Carson had what I would consider a good game," head coach Mike Gundy said. "There were times he was a little hesitant to accelerate through a hole, in my opinion, but he made moves, made guys miss, made spin moves, jumped outside, got us some key yards at times.

A junior college transfer, Carson had 994 rushing yards and nine TDs for Butler Community College last year.
