It’s high noon...

Gundy hopes O-line hits stride in Bedlam:

The Oklahoman writes that for Mike Gundy, one of the biggest thing for Saturday is making sure his offensive line hits a high note. It’s been a game of musical chairs this season and they’re going to need to play well for the Cowboys to win this game.

“It’s a challenge for us,” OSU coach Mike Gundy said. “This will be our biggest test. Now that they’ve got some of those guys back, they’re competitive, they can rush the quarterback and they’ve been good against the run.”

Meanwhile, the Cowboys have been on a constant search for answers up front.

Gundy has described the situation as “musical chairs” on multiple occasions, and it’s a fair assessment. “An abundance of misfortune” would be another way to describe it. {Oklahoman}

Can the Cowboys get over their hump:

Most Oklahoma State fans know of Mike Gundy’s struggles against OU. Could 2020 be the year that that changes?

“I think that these games have been very competitive,” Gundy said. “There have been times that we’ve played our best football. Our best game of the year and lost the game based on certain things happening. The way the ball bounces different ways. Our players continue to practice well. They’re buying into the system and what we’re trying to accomplish. Those are really the only things that I can gauge in us getting ready to play.” {Tulsa World}

Oklahoma State Players accept Reese’s Bowl invites:

Tylan Wallace and Rodarius Willams have both accepted invites to the Reese’s Senior Bowl where they’ll get the chance to show their skills in front of NFL scouts.

Oklahoma State elite wide receiver Tylan Wallace and cornerback Rodarius Williams have both accepted invites to the 2021 Reese’s Senior Bowl, it was announced Wednesday morning. The duo will join fellow senior and Cowboy offensive lineman Teven Jenkins in participating in the all-star game showcase, which is scheduled to be played on Saturday, January 30, in Mobile, Alabama. {OSU 24/7}
