Make or break games for Oklahoma State football

As usual, the Cowboys are loaded with talent at the skill positions on offense, but they do not have a quarterback that has proven he can win critical Big 12 games. 247’s Robert Allen writes about the make or break games the Cowboys must win to contend for the top of the conference.

Sept. 21, at Texas - Oklahoma State has won five in a row in Austin and seven out of nine overall, so you can’t count the Cowboys out.

Oct. 5, at Texas Tech - A week ago I would not have had this game on there but Matt Wells is impressive and Tech has some talent and the game is in Lubbock.

Oct. 19, Baylor - It is homecoming and Baylor has talent and they are feeling like a contender. This won’t be easy.

Oct. 28, at Iowa State - Much like Baylor, the Cyclones are talented and especially so on defense.

Nov. 2, TCU - I’m not as high on the Horned Frogs, but most observers feel Gary Patterson is a certainty to lead TCU back up the food chain this season. 247

Recruiting

Kyle Boone from the Pistols Firing Blog writes about the new top targets in the 2020 class for OSU football.

Oklahoma State is more than halfway through the 2020 recruiting cycle, and its progress in building the class is right on par with that. As we look ahead to August, the class is up to 13 commitments of a possible NCAA-maximum 25, and enough targets are in sight to land right at the number or darn near it before December’s signing period.

Let’s reset the big board and take a look at who is in OSU’s wish list.

1. Monroe Mills, OT — A 6-foot-7 (!), 291-pound tackle from Missouri, Mills is a new addition to this list after being offered by OSU two weeks ago. He’s rated as a three-star recruit but has nearly two dozen offers — including Kansas, Missouri, Iowa State and Illinois.

2. Larry Moore, OT — Well … this could be fun. Moore is pledged to Texas Tech, but OSU offered regardless earlier this month. Moore is a 6-foot-5, 275-pound tackle from Missouri City, Texas, who fits a need at tackle for OSU in the class. It seems like OSU wants at least one more, and ideally, either Mills or Moore would take that final OL spot.

3. Daniyel Ngata, RB — Ngata is a top-100 running back from Cali — not exactly the type of player OSU lands, nor from the geographic region OSU recruits from. But, OSU is in the top five for Ngata, fighting Texas A&M, Clemson, Arizona State and Utah for his signature. . . more at pistolsfiringblog.com
