STILLWATER, Okla. -- A second straight week in which Oklahoma State attempts to play the roll of Big 12 spoiler will involve a visit Saturday from No. 9 West Virginia to Boone Pickens Stadium.
The Cowboys, aware of their positioning as a 5-5 team, came within a two-point conversion of effectively removing Oklahoma from the College Football Playoff chase. That bid fell short in a 48-47 road defeat, but Oklahoma State will get to pose another threat to a Big 12 co-leader in spite of a 2-5 mark in the conference.
"I know what we expect to see from Oklahoma State. They are scary," said West Virginia coach Dana Holgorsen, a former assistant for Cowboys coach Mike Gundy.
