Coming into Saturday's game against Utah, Cummings had just six catches for 69 yards, but on a day in which sophomore receiver Brandin Cooks was missing in action, it was Cummings who came up with two huge catches in the fourth quarter, helping OSU to its third touchdown of the night, giving the Beavers a 21-7 lead and, ultimately, another win.
