Oklahoma State (9-1, 6-1 Big 12) creeped into the Top 10 of the College Football Playoff rankings this week after blitzing TCU last Saturday in a 63-17 beatdown. The Cowboys were guided by the two-headed monster of running backs Dominic Richardson and Jaylen Warren, who combined for 247 rushing yards and five touchdowns during the blowouts. Defensively, OSU stopped the Horned Frogs on 11-of-13 third down attempts.
In spite of operating with an interim head coach in the backhalf of the season, Texas Tech (6-4, 3-4 Big 12) managed to reach bowl eligibility last Saturday by pulling off a surprising 41-38 victory over Iowa State. The highlight, of course, was kicker Jonathan Garibay booming a 62-yard field goal as time expired to clinch the Red Raiders the victory. Tech also got a solid outing from quarterback Donovan Smith, who threw for 322 yards and three touchdowns.

The Cowboys have been playing fantastic defense all season long and have limited opponents to just 16.4 ppg. OSU is in the driver’s seat for a possible spot in the Big 12 Championship game and with a critical rivalry game against Oklahoma next week, they’re going to want to smother TTU and put them down quickly here. OSU rolls.
