Oklahoma State Cowboys National Championship Odds
The Oklahoma State Cowboys suffered a down year in 2018, finishing just 7-6 and narrowly avoiding their first losing season in more than a decade. Despite those issues, there is a lot of talent returning to this team and there is hope for a rebound in 2019. Coach Mike Gundy has done a nice job with his program, and while it won’t ever be confused with neighbor Oklahoma, the Cowboys are a solid team that hopes to pull some upsets this year and remain in the mix for the Big XII title.

Oklahoma State has some nice weapons on offense but will need a quarterback to emerge to get those players the ball. The most likely candidate is highly-touted redshirt freshman Spencer Sanders, who has a unique blend of arm talent and mobility. Sanders will battle Hawaii transfer Dru Brown for the job but is expected to be the favorite.
One of the quarterback’s main targets will certainly be Tylan Wallace, who had 1,419 yards receiving a season ago and is expected to have another strong year. Dillon Stoner and Landon Wolf also return as Oklahoma State’s offense is expected to be high-flying once again. Chuba Hubbard played well down the stretch last season and will be the team’s primary ballcarrier.
The concern is on defense, as it is for most teams in the conference. Oklahoma State was No. 112 in total defense a year ago and has to improve on that mark if this team truly has plans on improving in 2019. A.J. Green and Rodarius Williams have a lot of experience at cornerback, and if they can hold up there it would be a huge boost to the unit. Calvin Bundage leads a linebacker corps which has some high-end talent but lacks serviceable players behind them. Oklahoma State loses all four of its starters from the defensive line, and the new wave of players must show they can pressure the quarterback and stop the run, or else this team will be in a bunch of shootouts in 2019.

It’s never easy being second fiddle in a state, as the Oklahoma Sooners tend to gobble up the best recruits from the area. However, Oklahoma State has carved out a pretty nice niche for itself as a solid program in the Big 12, finding more success than the majority of other teams. Gundy is in his 15th season leading the Cowboys, and his best season came in 2011, when Oklahoma State went 12-1 and won eight of nine conference games to capture the Big 12.
Prior to that, Oklahoma State’s most recent conference title came back in 1976 under Jim Stanley when the team claimed the Big Eight championship. Jimmy Johnson is another big-name coach who once roamed the sidelines with Oklahoma State before moving on to bigger things in college football and the NFL.
The Oklahoma State program may never get to the status of conference heavyweights Oklahoma and Texas, but it’s done a nice job settling in as a second-tier team, and will aim to secure another bowl game berth in 2019 under Gundy.
