1. College Football News Preview 2020: Oklahoma State Cowboys Win Total Prediction, What Will Happen
Oklahoma State is overdue for a ten-win season again.
The program was on a terrific run of six double-digit win campaigns in eight years from 2010 to 2017, but the last two years were a bit rough.
The offense had some strange lapses, the defense couldn’t quite pull through in enough close games, and going 15-11 is the worst two-season stretch for Mike Gundy since he got past his first three seasons.
This year’s team should be ready to bust out again.
It’s not just that there’s experience and talent across the board, it’s that there’s enough depth to fill in the gaps when and where needed. It was actually a big plus that no Cowboy got drafted in April – almost everyone is back.
Set The Oklahoma State Cowboys Regular Season Win Total At … 9
Oregon State, Tulsa and Western Illinois have to be no-brainer home wins to kick things off before getting a week off. The Cowboys get Texas and Iowa State at home, and while there’s a road game against a significantly weaker Baylor team, the real test will be the trip over to Norman to deal with OU.
However, this year’s team should be good enough and explosive enough to at least pull off nine regular season wins while setting the bar at a spot in the Big 12 Championship.
Here’s the call – the Texas game in Stillwater to end the regular season will be for a spot in the conference title game.
