Coming into the 2017 season, coach Mike Gundy is starting his 12th season as the head coach at Oklahoma State University. Last season the Cowboys finished at a 10-3 record, including a bowl game win over Colorado.
The one thing we won’t have to worry about with the Cowboys will be their offense. The Cowboys have one special duo, with quarterback Mason Rudolph and wide receiver James Washington. Rudolph threw for 4,091 yards and 28 touchdowns. Washington had 1,380 receiving yards and caught 10 touchdowns. Another great piece to this team, will be sophomore running back Justice Hill. He rushed for 1,142 yards and tacked on 6 touchdowns during his freshman season. Last season the Cowboys average 39 points per game, which was 17th in the nation.
This defense wasn’t always pretty, but it got the job done. The Cowboys defense allowed 446 yards per game, whichwas normal against big 12 teams. The defense gave up 27 points per game, which was 53rd in the country. A big part of this defense is Ramon Richards. He led the team last season in interceptions with three. Chad Whitener should lead the linebacking crew since last season he finished with 71 tackles and 7.5 tackles for loss.

I have Oklahoma State with an 11-1 record, after being stunned by Pittsburgh. The Cowboys should be in the Big 12 championship game after everything is said and done. Oklahoma State season will be one to remember.
