Oklahoma State Cowboys Game Notes
Oklahoma State redshirt junior QB Spencer Sanders completed 14-of-23 passes for 108 yards in a 20-18 victory over Kansas State on Saturday. Sanders (6'1/205) was positively dreadful on Saturday, as he sorely missed OSU superstar wideout Tylan Wallace. He averaged only 4.7 yards per attempt while converting a paltry 4-of-15 third downs and leading the offense to 256 yards of total offense. About the only thing the redshirt junior signal caller did well was not turn the ball over, though he did fumble once that was luckily recovered by the Cowboys. He will have to play much better next Saturday if Oklahoma State expects to topple in-state rival Oklahoma in the Bedlam game.
Oklahoma Sooners Game Notes
According to Pro Football Focus, Oklahoma redshirt freshman QB Spencer Rattler is the highest-graded passer outside of the pocket. Rattler still has a ways to go in terms of down-to-down consistency. He far too often gets ahead of himself and attempts unnecessarily aggressive passes, many of which have been picked off this year. When he gets outside of the pocket, though, and can rely more on his arm strength and mobility, PFF says there is nobody better. Rattler holds a 92.4 grade outside the pocket right now, just barely topping Ohio State QB Justin Fields at 91.4. If Rattler ever settles down on his inside the pocket work, he will be an absolute terror.
Oklahoma State vs. Oklahoma Betting Prediction
The over is 5-2-1 in the last eight meetings in this series and has cashed in five of Oklahoma’s last six games overall. The over is also 12-4-1 in the Sooners’ last 17 games as a home favorite, is 15-5-1 in their last 21 home games and is 7-3 in their last 10 games played in November. While Oklahoma State’s games trend under a lot, I see Oklahoma’s fast-paced style pulling the Cowboys into a shootout tonight in Norman.
