Oklahoma State is kind of a newcomer to this football powerhouse thing. OK-State has been to bowls in seven consecutive seasons, a first for them. Last season they went 7-5 under three quarterbacks, winning in the Heart of Dallas Bowl. Call them crazy, but that quarterback trio actually worked, and two of them were freshmen. All three return, but J.W. Walsh was the most effective last year. Keep an eye on him this season. 1400-yard rusher Joseph Randle will need to be replaced. The balanced receiving core’s only outlier was Josh Stewart with an unbelievable 101 receptions and 1,210 yards. Stewart saw an increase of 82 receptions from freshman to sophomore year, so this year he’s on pace for…183 receptions! But seriously though, Randle is making everyone forget about Justin Blackmon. With an offense that scored 45.7 points per game (3rd in the nation), the Cowboys were able to outscore their mediocre defense (64th) almost every time. A strong recruiting class, mostly defensive, sets them up for continued success. They’ll need it too, as a brutal final three games at intimidating Texas and at home against high-powered Baylor and elite Oklahoma will test their defensive mettle for sure. But overall, OK-State is poised for a great season, will definitely make a bowl, and could push themselves into conference title contention.
The Oklahoma State Cowboys are now a college football powerhouse out of the Big 12 conference. Led by head coach Mike Gundy, the Cowboys play at the beautiful Boone Pickens Stadium, which holds just over 60,000 fans. The Cowboys boast the 1988 Heisman Trophy winner and former NFL standout running back, Barry Sanders. In addition, the Cowboys have many notable players currently playing in the NFL including: Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant, Dallas Cowboys kicker Dan Bailey, and Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Justin Blackmon. In 2011 the Oklahoma State Cowboys went on to win the Big 12 for the first time in school history, and then defeated #4 ranked Stanford in the BCS Tostitos Fiesta Bowl. This season the Cowboys look to return to that success and Gold Coast Tickets has all the tickets so that you can watch them do it.
