OSU football: Johnny Wilson sees improvement in OU defense
STILLWATER — Oklahoma State offensive lineman Johnny Wilson loves the Bedlam game.
He loves the rivalry. He loves the intensity. He loves playing Oklahoma’s defense.
“Those guys are really, really athletic and hard-playing,” Wilson said. “It’s a challenge and I like it. Last year and the year before last, my best games were against OU. I kinda hope to do the same thing this year.”
But when the Cowboys host OU at 7 p.m. Saturday, they’ll see a red-hot Sooners defense.

Throughout the past six quarters, OU held its last two opponents — TCU and Baylor — to just 273 yards.
Wilson said the Sooners have improved from years past.
“They’re not just running blindly in the gaps anymore,” Wilson said. “They’re moving with a purpose, and I think that’s really key to know for me knowing where these guys are going to go and how they’re going to get there.”
