These two grinded out a game at Central Michigan last year, but things should be a little different in Stillwater. Look for the Cowboys to come out fast and hit the Chippewas early, forcing CMU to have to air it out against a questionable Oklahoma State secondary. The Cowboys have hit the over in 60 of their last 91 home games and in 17 of their last 25 non-conference contests. This weekend should be no different at home.
