From Necessary Roughness

It may not have been the offensive explosion that everyone, including myself, expected but Oklahoma State did win and covered the spread.

There wasn't 300+ yards of passing by Zac Robinson, Dez Bryant did not make a Heisman statement and the Oklahoma State rushing attack was not superb.
The story here was the Oklahoma state defense which was considered the weak link of this team.
Oklahoma State forced 3 turnovers and held the rebuilt Georgia offense to 257 total yards and just 10 points. A.J. Green was held to just 4 receptions, 52 yards and no touchdowns.
If the Oklahoma State defense can continue this performance, and its safe to say the offense will get back to putting up points, in addition to the Sam Bradford injury hurting the Sooners, Oklahoma State looks like they have a much better shot at winning the Big 12 today then they did early Saturday morning.
Pasik's 2009 season weekly picks = 1-0!
