Through 3 Quarters

The Oklahoma State Cowboys were expected to win this one, and they are just one quarter away from fulfilling that expectation. Sitting on a score of 20-9, they have looked like the better team out there today, but there's still one more quarter to play. Their offense has come from several players so far, with QB Shane Illingworth leading the way by passing for one TD and 268 yards on 33 attempts.

With three sacks, the Oklahoma State defense has been a true menace for Missouri State's offensive line. We'll see if the Cowboys can continue to haunt the offensive line.

Who's Playing

Missouri State @ No. 21 Oklahoma State

Last Season Records: Oklahoma State 8-3; Missouri State 5-5

What to Know

The Oklahoma State Cowboys will play against a Division II opponent, the Missouri State Bears, in an early-season tune-up Saturday at 7 p.m. ET at Boone Pickens Stadium. Oklahoma State ended up 8-3 last season and capped things off with a win over the Miami (FL) Hurricanes in the Cheez-It Bowl, so they are on the hunt for another strong season.

The Cowboys have the odds in their favor, so they'll need to guard against complacency. It would take nothing short of a miracle for MSU to pull off a victory, but maybe they can at least keep Oklahoma State from covering the spread.
