first_imgHill (403 yards)Childs (178)Carr (86)Carson (45)Sanders (41)Cornelius (28)2. The OSU defense will once again finish top 20 in turnover margin — Currently No. 22 so this is looking pretty solid.3. Vincent Taylor will be an All-American — Taylor has been pretty strong so far. He has 20 tackles, three TFLs, two sacks, two QB hurries and three blocked kicks. Not sure about All-American, but he should be an All-Big 12 player..Kyle P.1. Rudolph will join the 4,000 yard club — He has 2,039 through six games. And he barely played in one of those. So he’s tracking. It could come down to the bowl game.2. Jeff Carr will finish with more TDs than any of the 394 other running backs — Nope! Carr has one total TD. Childs has six, Hill has three, Sanders has two and Carson has one. Nice.3. Tre Flowers will lead the team in INT with four. He currently has zero and trails Jordan Burton (2), Ramon Richards (2), Jordan Sterns (1) and Derrick Moncrief (1). The staff writers here at Pistols Firing made 12 predictions before the season started. Stuff we figured would come to fruition over the course of OSU’s season. Let’s take a look back at those predictions and how they’re looking at the halfway point.Kyle Boone1. Jarrell Owens will lead the team in sacks — Owens has 2.5 sacks which is third on the team behind DeQuinton Osborne (3.5) and Tralund Webber (3.0). Webber had two against Iowa State and Osborne had 2.5 which means Owens was actually leading the team going into the sixth game.2. Dillon Stoner will finish the season as the second most productive freshman receiver in OSU history — Stoner finished the season with five catches for 27 yards and a TD pass before getting injured in the Baylor game for the remainder of the season.#Big12FB: @CowboyFB on 4th and 1? Call on Washington for the TD. pic.twitter.com/n5IqgaXZ2g— Big 12 Conference (@Big12Conference) September 10, 20163. James Washington will be a Biletnikoff Award Finalist — Yes.Sam Aldrich1. Barry J. Sanders will not rush for 400 yards this season. — He has 21 carries for 41 yards so I would say this is accurate. Ack-rut.2. A freshman start at CB at some point in 2016 — Not yet, but with the way things are going I wouldn’t be all that surprised. 3. Stoner will have 25 catches and 3 touchdowns at the end of September — Unfortunately no. He had five for 27 yards and zero TDs, and he played all the September games.Thomas Fleming1. Rennie Childs will finish the season with the most yards on the ground, then Barry J., then Carson — Not looking great.
