This is the fifth story in a six-part series reviewing Oklahoma State's spring practice, and what we learned over the past six weeks. This edition takes a look at the Cowboys specialists and how they'll be attempting to replace All-American kicker/punter Quinn Sharp.
Quinn Sharp was one of two Oklahoma State players at the NFL Combine last week in Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. Joining Sharp was former Cowboys running back Joseph Randle. Next to Heisman Trophy winner and Pro Football Hall of Famer Barry Sanders, Sharp's name probably appears in the Oklahoma State football record book more than any other.

Oklahoma State never led -- until it counted. After Stanford's Jordan Williamson missed two late FGs, Quinn Sharp made a 22-yarder in OT to clinch a wild 41-38 Fiesta Bowl victory.
