Oklahoma State is in a solid position for a good run in 2011 with its No. 9 ranking in the BCS polls.
Justin Blackmon put up absurd numbers in 2010 and is blue chip NFL prospect. He had 1,782 yards receiving and 20 touchdowns.
His quarterback, Brandon Weeden threw for 4,277 yards and 34 touchdowns with just 13 interceptions last year.
If the Cowboys defense can pull it together Oklahoma State can be a legitimate force in the Big 12 this season.
Texas A&M's starting quarterback Ryan Tannehill is in his first year behind center, but has played receiver for the Aggies the last three years. Tannehill took over the reigns from Jerrod Johnson last year and closed out the year with six straight wins. The transition is still sketchy, but at least he has someone to throw to.
Jeff Fuller is a senior wide receiver who has produced throughout his career, but his junior season has been his best to date. Fuller had 1,066 yards receiving and 12 touchdowns.
The Aggies are another team ranked in the top 10 that had a less-than-exceptional season in 2010. They do have 18 returning starters, including running back Christine Michael, who broke out last season.
This clash with the Cowboys will be a defining moment in their season.
- Jeff Fuller, WR, Texas A&M
