Carson looking to build on solid performance in opener

Chris Carson's Oklahoma State debut was a big success.

Carson was voted the Big 12's preseason newcomer of the year, but coach Mike Gundy maintained he wouldn't know what the running back could really do until he performed in a real game.

Gundy got the answer he was looking for when Carson gained 89 yards on 21 carries in the Cowboys' 24-13 victory at Central Michigan last Thursday.

Gundy says Carson "made moves, made guys miss, made spin moves, jumped outside, got us some key yards at times."

Oklahoma State hosts Central Arkansas (0-1) on Saturday.
