It’s high noon...

Mason Rudolph’s Steelers team thinks they’ll be just fine:

With Ben Roethlisberger out for the season due to surgery, former Cowboy Mason Rudolph is the new QB1 of the Pittsburgh Steelers. And his teammates are putting their total trust in him.

“He is a great leader,” said JuJu Smith-Schuster. “Someone we all trust.

“We all believe in him, that he is going to step up and do the job. You saw a glimpse of him this past game.”

Rudolph made his NFL debut against the Seahawks on Sunday, coming into the game in the second half after Roethlisberger left the game with the elbow injury. He completed 12 of 19 passes for 112 yards and two touchdowns.{}

The staying power of an undefeated Oklahoma State:

Yahoo’s Pat Forde wrote about some undefeated teams and they’re ability to stay that way. He mentioned Oklahoma State. Here’s what he had to say about the Pokes.

This looks like a very on-brand Mike Gundy team: unheralded preseason and now looking like a problem for the rest of the Big 12. Gundy has plugged in his latest productive quarterback — freshman Spencer Sanders — and let him distribute the ball to a pair of stud skill position players. Receiver Tylan Wallace (15 catches, 390 yards, six touchdowns) and running back Chuba Hubbard (521 rushing yards, seven TDs) lead the nation in rushing and receiving yards per game. Keep them healthy and the Cowboys will be difficult to stop. Next: at Texas Saturday in an early Big 12 biggie.{Yahoo Sports}
