Cowboy coaches explain why Tyreek Hill had just four offensive touches in the second half against Kansas State

On Oklahoma State’s lone touchdown drive Saturday night, there was no secret to the Cowboys’ success. Give Tyreek Hill the ball. Then do it again. And again.

Of that opening scoring drive’s eight plays, six were to Hill including a long reception that help set a two-yard touchdown run.

By the end of the first half, the Cowboys ran 39 plays and Hill accounted for 15. In the absence of starting running back Desmond Roland, who did not play after the recent passing of his mother, Hill emerged as more than capable as OSU’s featured back.

Hill’s first half stats: 14 carries for 93 yards and a touchdown. One reception for 34 yards.
