Oklahoma State Cowboys Betting

Oklahoma State has had a remarkable run over the last two decades. The Cowboys were a largely moribund program for most of their history, but T. Boone Pickens changed all that. Pickens became the biggest athletic booster in the country, turning Oklahoma State into one of the better programs in the Big 12. That has led to Oklahoma State making a bowl game for 14 straight years, and they are guaranteed to have a winning record for the 14th consecutive season as well. Mike Gundy has led the Cowboys to three straight bowl game victories, and Oklahoma State is 7-2 in bowl games this decade. Despite all that past success though, the Cowboys are nearly a touchdown underdog on the college football betting line against the 7-5 Texas A&M Aggies in the Texas Bowl.

Gundy will be without two of his three best offensive weapons in the Texas Bowl. Freshman quarterback Spencer Sanders suffered a season-ending injury in mid-November against Kansas, and wide receiver Tylan Wallace was lost for the year in early November after tearing his ACL in practice.

Sanders was interception prone, but his ability to run led to Gundy sticking with the young quarterback. He was the team’s second leading rusher this season with 625 rushing yards, and Dru Brown is nowhere near the runner.

Brown was the preseason favorite to start as a graduate transfer from Hawaii. However, he lost out to Sanders and played sparingly until forced into action due to injury. Brown has fared well, completing 72.2 percent of his passes for 626 yards with five touchdowns and an interception, but he is not a threat to move the chains with his legs.

Wallace’s injury led to Oklahoma State turning to Dillon Stoner as the new receiver. Stoner is the only other receiver on the team with more than 25 receptions, catching 49 passes for 598 yards and five touchdowns this year. However, the real star on offense has been running back Chuba Hubbard.

Hubbard has had a standout season. The nation’s leading rusher has carried the ball 309 times for 1,936 yards and 21 touchdowns, and he has 21 receptions for 183 yards. He was disappointed not to be invited to New York as a Heisman Trophy finalist, but his prodigious workload is largely to thank for his stats.

Texas A&M’s defense was routed by LSU, but defensive coordinator Mike Elko’s unit should have a much easier time against Oklahoma State. Elko is a finalist for a couple head coaching gigs though, and his departure would throw things out of whack.

The Aggies did not have a good end to their season. They lost their last two games to Georgia and LSU, and they failed to beat a quality opponent all year. Kellen Mond regressed somewhat completing just 61.3 percent of his passes for 2,802 yards with 19 touchdowns and nine interceptions, but he was sacked 30 times.

Jhamon Ausbon is the main threat in the receiving corps, while Isaiah Spiller is the top running back on the team. Spiller is averaging 5.6 YPC, and he could have a big game against an Oklahoma State defense that has allowed 4.2 YPC.

Regular Season Recap

The Cowboys went 3-0 in non-conference play, going on the road to beat both Oregon State and Tulsa and cruising to a win over FCS McNeese State in Stillwater. They couldn’t beat Texas for the fifth straight season though, falling to the Longhorns 36-30 in Austin.

Oklahoma State responded with an impressive 26-13 win over undefeated Kansas State, smothering the Wildcats’ offense with a stingy defense. Unfortunately, they lost as a sizable favorite against Texas Tech the next week and fell to Baylor the week after to move to 1-3 in Big 12 play. The Cowboys rose to the occasion with their season on the line though, winning their next four games.

Their most impressive win was on the road against a good Iowa State team. The Cowboys outlasted the Cyclones 34-27 in a game where Oklahoma State racked up more than 400 yards against one of the best defenses in the conference, and they built off that victory with wins over TCU, Kansas, and West Virginia.

Oklahoma State was a sizable home underdog in its season finale against Oklahoma, and the Cowboys fell short in Bedlam once again. They lost 34-16 with backup quarterback Dru Brown at the helm, but Hubbard surpassed 100 yards on the ground for the 10th straight game in the loss.

The Cowboys turned the ball over twice against the Sooners, but they still accumulated over 300 yards of offense without their starting quarterback or star receiver, so Gundy and Oklahoma State have nothing to be ashamed of in the defeat. This defense limited Jalen Hurts like few other teams have this year too, allowing Hurts to accumulate just 224 combined yards in this heated rivalry game.
