Oklahoma State enters the 2020 season with huge expectations. The Cowboys hope to win the Big 12 Championship and maybe even become one of four teams to qualify for the College Football Playoff. The Offense welcomes back eight starters including three starters on the Offensive Line. The Offensive Line will be blocking for junior Running Back Chuba Hubbard who will be one of the top backs in the Country. Sophomore Quarterback Spencer Sanders is back to run the Offense and will have junior Tight End Jelani Woods back as well. The Wide Receiving Unit returns two starters in seniors Tylan Wallace and Dillon Stoner. Look out for junior Braydon Johnson (LSU transfer) to contribute as well. Oklahoma State returns all eleven starters on Defense including both starters on the Linebacking Unit in seniors Amen Ogbongbemiga and Malcolm Rodriguez. The Defensive Line is loaded with talent as well as all four starters return. The Defensive Line will be carried by sophomore Defensive Ends Tyler Lacy and Trace Ford. The Secondary returns four starters as well including a pair of junior Safeties in Tre Sterling and Kolby Harvell-Peel. The Special Teams Unit will be anchored by a pair of sophomores in Kicker Alex Hale and Punter Tom Hutton. Oklahoma State Head Coach Mike Gundy enters his 16th season with high hopes that this will be the Cowboys best season since 2011 as the sky is the limit. If the Cowboys can remain relatively healthy they could easily find themselves in the Big 12 Championship Game in early December. Win that game and they could easily make it to College Football’s grandest stage. I predict Oklahoma State to come up just a bit short of their 2020 goals and finish 10-3.
