Oklahoma State opened its season last Thursday night with a 59-24 victory over Tulsa at home, hitting the over of a 70.5-point total. Not surprisingly, the Cowboys put up 640 yards on the Golden Hurricanes in the win, including 332 rushing yards. Oklahoma State allowed 432 yards to Tulsa, a good offense in its own right. The Golden Hurricanes put up 244 rushing yards. Leading the Cowboys in the win was Mason Rudolph, who had 303 passing yards with three touchdowns. Rudolph hit James Washingotn for six catches for 145 yards and two scores. Justice Hill led the ground game with 132 yards on 15 carries while J.D. King and La’Darren Brown combined for 187 yards on just 11 total carries.

South Alabama got its season started on Saturday with a 47-27 loss at Ole Miss, hitting the over of 59 points on the road. The Panthers gave up 531 yards to the Rebels, including 429 passing yards, but they also were able to put up 374 yards and didn’t commit a turnover. Quarterback Cole Garvin was 19-of-31 passing for 204 yards with a touchdown and two rushing scores, while Tra Minter led the rushing attack with 83 yards on 12 carries.

Bet on Oklahoma State vs. South Alabama

Oklahoma State looked really good offensively last week and that should be the case again this week, even on the road. The Cowboys should be able to pass the ball with ease and then run the ball with ease once it establishes a lead. South Alabama has hit the over in its last four games as a program and, being at home should help the Panthers contribute a little bit to the total on offense. The Cowboys don’t have a lockdown defense, so big plays will be available for Oklahoma State. Oklahoma State has hit the over in its last six games against Sun Belt opponents and its last five against a losing team. Look for it to hit again on Friday night.
