College Football Week 13: #22 Oklahoma State At #14 Oklahoma
|The Cowboys smacked Texas Tech last week and head into Bedlam having won five of their last six and looking for their second straight win in the series.||Coaching||Oklahoma survived on the road against West Virginia last week, scoring a touchdown with 24 seconds left to win. A win here and a Kansas State loss to Texas would mean the Sooners are Big 12 champs.|
|It doesn’t seem to matter who is playing quarterback for the Cowboys. Clint Chelf led Oklahoma State to 487 yards of offense last week, with J.W. Walsh playing in short yardage situations.||Offense||Time for a data dump: 554 passing yards, 662 total yards, and 7 touchdowns. Those are the offensive numbers the Sooners posted last week, as Landry Jones broke his own school record for passing yards.|
|Considering some of the offenses in the Big 12, the Cowboys’ defense hasn’t been that bad. It will take a great effort to slow down OU.||Defense||The Sooners got the win, so all sins are forgotten, right? They were absolutely shredded by West Virginia last week and will have their hands full with Oklahoma State’s high-octane offense as well.|
|Zack Craig blocked two punts last week, returning one for a score. The Cowboys are ranked fourth in special teams play according to Football Outsiders.||Special Teams||OU’s special teams have been decent, though their punting and punt returns have been awful.|
The winner is
