Colorado at Oklahoma St 11-19-09

November 19, 2009


Oklahoma State (8-2, 5-1) is looking to win its third straight since a 41-14 loss to Texas dealt a major blow to its chances of reaching the Big 12 championship game. The Longhorns lead the Cowboys by one game with the tiebreaker going to Texas. While its chances to reach the title game are slim, Oklahoma State will try to finish the season strong. It takes the field Thursday after a 24-17 win over Texas Tech on Saturday in which the team’s quarterback spent the final seconds on the sideline. Robinson collided with a Texas Tech player in the final two minutes. After quickly sitting up, he laid back down and stayed that way for several minutes before being helped to the bench by the team’s trainers.Coach Mike Gundy believes Robinson will be fine and able to play this week, but the shortened recovery time may end up factoring in his decision. If Robinson is unable to go, junior Alex Cate – who has never started a college game – would replace him

Oklahoma State is home for the last time this season. The Cowboys already have two losses this season at Boone Pickens Stadium and they have lost three home games just once in the last seven seasons. It’s doubtful they’ll fall to Colorado here since the Buffaloes could be the worst team in the league. Their running game – a supposed strength heading into the year – has averaged less than 3.0 yards per carry and the quarterbacks have nailed just 52% of their throws. Both numbers rank dead last in the Big 12. Oklahoma State should control this game from start to finish. The only concern with the Cowboys is if they’ll be looking ahead to next week’s game vs. Oklahoma. Thankfully, they don’t have to travel after last week’s home win over Texas Tech while Colorado was at Iowa State last Saturday. The Buffaloes are 5-12 ATS in their last 17 road games.It’ll be 5-13 come Friday morning.
