Cowboys Quarterback Brandon Weeden. This kid has gone bonkers so far in the season, and if he can keep it up, then this offense will light up a Texas A&M secondary that at this point is subpar at best.
Matchup To Watch
Junior Nick Martinez has taken over for first round NFL draft pick Russell Okung. Bad news for Martinez: He has to deal with the nightmare known as DE/OLB Von Miller who so far only has one sack mainly because he has been dealing with an ankle injury. Expect Miller to show up for the bright lights this weekend.
Why OK State Can Win
The Cowboys have scored 65, 41, 65 respectively in their three games this season. We knew Mike Gundy was a man, but the bigger man so far this season has been the aforementioned Brandon Weeden.
975 yards and 11 TD’s is quite impressive despite the cupcake schedule thus far. Look for him to throw a lot this game to receivers Justin Blackmon, Hubert Anyiam, Tracy Moore, and Josh Cooper who are the primary targets who have had no issues moving the chain in the month of September. Let’s see what October brings to the Pokes.
T. Boone Pickens no doubt has to be happy with his team's offenses thus far, but the real tests lie ahead.
Why Texas A&M Can Win
Jerrod Johnson struggled in his last game due to his average, at best, offensive line. Luckily, his backs Christine Michael and Cyrus Gray have carried most of the load offensively because the passing game has still struggled.
Also luckily, Jeff Fuller is an elite Big 12 wide receiver who is still chalking up yards after the catch and he should have no problem against an absolutely brutal Cowboys pass defense. Expect a crazy Thursday night game that’s comes down to the wire. I am expecting bigger things from the Aggies than I am the Cowboys despite the game being played in Stillwater.
If the defense can prove that the OK State offense is not the best in the nation as they are now, then it could be a very exciting game.
