The Oklahoma State Cowboys won the Big 12 last season, but they will have difficulty repeating this season. A big part of that will be the star players they will have to face in conference play this season.
The Big 12 has been known for its quarterback play for a long time, but it will not just be quarterbacks that give the Cowboys fits this season. There are skill position players on both sides of the ball that the Oklahoma State coaching staff will have to prepare for. How well the players react to these opposing star could determine how many wins this team actually has.
Either way, every team has one player that is a difference maker above all others. However, not all of them will significantly challenge the Cowboys. Some will be easily handled thanks to the increased athleticism of this Cowboys team. There will be many who do present a big challenge, though.
