Charleston Rambo (six receptions, 77 yards) and Lee Morris (two catches, 32 yards) shared the receiving duties in the win.
Oklahoma State takes the field on Saturday after just earning a 20-13 win over West Virginia. The defensive secondary let the Mountaineers air it out for 307 yards. George Campbell had a good outing in the loss for West Virginia, recording 92 yards and a score on five catches. For Oklahoma State, Dru Brown completed 22-of-29 passes for 196 yards and two touchdowns. Chuba Hubbard (106 rushing yards on 26 attempts) spearheaded the running attack as Dillon Stoner (eight receptions, 62 yards, one TD) led the pass-catching corps in the win.
Oklahoma’s run the ball on 59.1 percent of its offensive possessions this year while Oklahoma State has an overall rush percentage of 62.4 percent. The Sooners have produced 258 rush yards/game (including 233 per game against Big 12 opponents) and have 30 touchdowns on the ground this year. The Cowboys are logging 246 rush yards per contest (231 in conference) and have 25 total rushing TDs.
The Sooners have tallied 317 yards per contest in the air overall (304 per game against conference opposition) and have 33 passing scores so far. The Cowboys have recorded 230 pass yards per outing (217.5 in the Big 12) and have 21 total pass TDs.
Oklahoma appears to have an advantage when it comes to limiting the pass. The team’s allowed opponents to run for an average of 142 yards and throw for 195 yards per game. Oklahoma State has allowed 139.0 rushing yards per game and 276.2 to opponents in the air. The Sooners are giving up an adjusted net yards per pass attempt (ANY/A) of just 5.75 to opponents, while the Cowboys have allowed a 6.34 ANY/A.
Hurts has put up 2,887 passing yards this season, and has completed 162-of-227 attempts with 26 passing touchdowns and only five interceptions. Hurts has a 13.08 adjusted net yards per pass attempt overall, although that number is 6.35 over the past two outings.
Look for a balanced approach offensively from Oklahoma in this one. Jalen Hurts (1,042 rushing yards, 17 rush TDs, 21 receiving yards on the year), Kennedy Brooks (664 rush yards, three rush TDs) and Charleston Rambo (651 receiving yards, five TDs) have all played big roles lately.
Dru Brown has recorded 349 yards, four TDs and zero INTs for Oklahoma State. His ANY/A stands at 9.00 for the year and 8.16 over his last two games.
We’re thinking the Cowboys will maintain tempo by pounding the defense with their running backs. Along with WR Dillon Stoner (387 receiving yards, three receiving TDs this season), Chuba Hubbard (1,710 rush yards, 18 rush TDs, 128 receiving yards) and LD Brown (161 rush yards, two rush TDs) have been focal points in the Cowboys’ recent offensive gameplans.
These two schools faced off last year with the final outcome being a 48-47 win for Oklahoma.
