Joel Klatt shows Oklahoma State some love:

Fox Sports college football analyst Joel Klatt recently released his preseason top-10. He ended up putting Oklahoma State into the mix as his No.10. Here’s what he had to say about the Cowboys.

{At No. 10, a team that I really like and is not getting a lot of pub outside of some of the controversies that have surrounded them during the course of the offseason, I really like Oklahoma State, guys,” Klatt said. “I think with the returning quarterback in Spencer Sanders, he’s going to cut down on his turnovers. He’s got Tylan Wallace back after that ACL injury. He’s got the best running back, I believe in college football in Chuba Hubbard. Watch out. That’s an explosive team. And remember, OU, while I have them rated higher than Oklahoma State, they’ve got a tough schedule. More on that in a little bit.” {CFB on Fox Twitter}

Upperclassmen could give OSU an edge:

Guerin Emig highlighted Gundy’s praise for his upperclassmen and their show of maturity amid the crazy off season 2020 has handed them. In what is bound to be a season with uncertainty that could help OSU come out on top.

“Whether it’s young people in school or young people in athletics or whatever it may be,” Gundy said Monday, “as they mature and get older, they seem to listen and make better decisions.”

Never has it been more important for college football players to make sound decisions.

OSU is good enough to unseat Oklahoma as Big 12 Conference champion, but it must be smart enough as well. Some games will be won or lost based on who’s in quarantine. Who’s in quarantine could be based on how many players were where they were supposed to be late Saturday night. {Tulsa World}

Tevin Jenkins given top grade by PFF:

Pro Football Focus released their o-line rankings earlier this morning. OSU’s Teven Jenkins received one of their highest scores with an 85.7. This was the fourth highest score given.
