Oklahoma State Cowboys College Football Betting
The Oklahoma State Cowboys began the current season touted as a potential national championship contender. But then came the year known as 2020 that will go down in infamy. There was nowhere to hide and nowhere to run from the pandemic and a tumultuous political year in the United States. Racial and law enforcement issues blew up over the summer and much of the fallout hit Stillwater, Oklahoma. Head coach Mike Gundy sent out a tweet of a fishing trip in which he was wearing a One America News Network t-shirt. One America News reported some organizations that claimed to be for racial justice were also for other controversial and unrelated goals. OAN used the own words of these organizations in their reporting. But for Oklahoma State running back Chuba Hubbard that didn’t matter. Instead, getting love on Twitter prevailed. Hubbard was triggered that his coach wore a t-shirt of a news organization that reported the news. And in the own words of the websites of organizations that they reported about. And it was all downhill from there.

Oklahoma State Cowboys Weekly Recap
The Oklahoma State Cowboys have a record of 7-3 straight up, 4-6 against the spread, and 3-7 under the total. The Cowboys ranked 40th in the nation for total offense, 59th for scoring, 39th for total defense, and 32nd for points allowed.
Quarterback Spencer Sanders finished with a lackluster 139.1 QB rating with 10 touchdown passes and 8 interceptions. It was a step down from 2019 when Sanders had a 145.4 rating. Sanders is only a sophomore and will be expected to breakout in 2021.
Junior running back Dezmon Jackson was the most effective ball carrier on the Pokes this season. Jackson finished with 526 yards rushing, 5.7 yards per rush, and 4 touchdowns. OSU’s top receiver was Tylan Wallace with 53 catches, 877 yards, and 6 touchdowns.
The Oklahoma State Cowboys played their best game of the season in their last game of the campaign. OSU routed the Baylor Bears 42-3. It made everyone who saw the game or follows Oklahoma State to ask where that team had been all year. There was another interesting side note to the game. Chuba Hubbard was missing. Hubbard opted out to focus on the NFL Draft and try and rehab an injured ankle that had limited his production for most of the 2020 season. It was hard not to notice how rejuvenated the Cowboys were without Hubbard. It was as if negative air had left the room.
Mike Gundy is the most successful coach in the history of Oklahoma State football. And as a former quarterback for the Cowboys, he is seen as the perfect fit. But many Cowboy fans are tired of “The Mullet.” Gundy has only two wins in 16 tries as OSU head coach against Oklahoma. This year’s Bedlam game was over before it began. Oklahoma hardly broke a sweat in a 41-13 win on Saturday night prime national television.
This year Oklahoma State finished ranked in the mid-30’s nationally for its recruiting class. That leads to another perpetual issue that Gundy hasn’t solved. OSU remains far behind Oklahoma in recruiting prowess and branding. Gundy has done a tremendous job in transforming the program. With the help of the late great T. Boone Pickens blank check investments the Pokes entered the national conversation, What remains to be seen is if they have hit their ceiling.
