In that homecoming effort, he book-ended Mike Gundy’s 100th win with the Cowboys’ first touchdown and another one late to give OSU a two-score lead, essentially sealing the victory over the No. 10-ranked Mountaineers.Lacy’s other catch in that game? A 19-yard drive-saving play on 3rd and eight. Two of his three best games in terms of yards have come this season. Throw in the Texas, KSU, Baylor and WVU games, and Lacy is putting together a pretty great season for a fourth option at WR.screen-shot-2016-11-13-at-7-44-38-amAnother cool note. Lacy was instrumental in another significant win for Gundy. OSU has now won eight straight against Texas Tech. That’s the longest streak against any Big 12 school. It doesn’t seem right, does it?But even when he wasn’t getting targets, Lacy finds a way to keep himself on the field by doing the dirty work.Watch the Chris Lacy block. https://t.co/LlWJIlkeVY— Pistols Firing (@pistolsguys) November 12, 2016It pays to be efficient and to wear your hard hat when you’re in the middle of a deep pool of wide-receiver talent such as Oklahoma State’s. Lacy is fourth in receiving yards at 360 behind James Washington, Jalen McCleskey and Jhajuan Seales.“We just took what they gave us,” said Lacy on Saturday. “Whenever they were playing back, we took the underneath routes and whenever they came up, we went over their head. We have a very explosive offense. We had a few turnovers but we were able to rally back and get the win.”With Seales carrying a rose Saturday for senior night and the possibility of James Washington playing Sundays in 2017 if he is so inclined, look for Lacy’s role to increase moving forward and into next year.last_img
