Ok State vs. UTSA Preview
We are just moments away from the kickoff between Oklahoma State and UTSA. Here are some thoughts on what to watch for during the game:
1. Can the defense keep it up and be as stingy as they were last week?
The defense held an SEC team to only 3 points, but there is still definitely room to improve. They gave up three 4th down conversions late in the game. As good as they were, they can still improve to make sure they play every down late in the game and force turnover on downs rather than staying out on the field.
2. WIll J.W. Walsh keep the electricity high on offense?
Chelf wasn’t getting it done for OSU against Miss. St., but when Walsh came in, the offense sparked and tore apart an SEC defense, especially on the ground. Walsh had 125 yards and Smith had 102. Offense shouldn’t be a problem against UTSA and the scoreboard should light up all game long.
3. How will the fans react even if OSU doesn’t put up big points?
I’m not saying this will happen. Against Miss. St., OSU still won by 18. If we had won 48-30, the fans would have been fine, but people around Stillwater aren’t used to OSU only putting up 21 points. OSU should be able to put up big numbers today and handle UTSA with ease, but what will happen if we win 28-0. Still a 28-point victory, but it’s not what people around here are used to. But let me tell you something, a win is a win is a win.
My prediction: OSU 48, UTSA 10. Go Pokes! Ride ’em Cowboys!
