Oklahoma State football had a disappointing end to the 2020 season after a 5-1 start, going just 2-2. Will the Cowboys handle Miami to finish strong?
After racing out to a 5-1 start and looking like one of the favorites to make the Big 12 title game and push a team like Oklahoma or Iowa State for a conference crown, Oklahoma State crumbled. Mike Gundy and the Cowboys finished the regular season just 2-2 with losses to Oklahoma and TCU and dropped to 7-3.
The Cowboys will be without Chuba Hubbard in the Cheez-It Bowl in which they earned a matchup with Miami after a disappointing season.
Will Oklahoma State be able to finish the 2020 season on a high note or will the Hurricanes bury this team one last time?
3. Tylan Wallace pushes 200 yards
No Chuba Hubbard? No problem. Just because the Cowboys are down one superstar threat on offense doesn’t mean they’re incapable of putting up numbers.
Without Hubbard, the offense will likely take to the air more. Sure, Dezmon Jackson and LD Brown are capable of carrying the load on the ground but I would venture to guess that Mike Gundy will make sure the aerial attack leads the way. The Hurricanes will be able to contain Jackson and Brown without the threat of Hubbard adding to the ground game so that means Sanders will need to utilzie the advantage he has in the passing game with Tylan Wallace.
Miami allows over 220 passing yards per game and the Hurricanes don’t have anyone who will be able to shut down the All-American receiver.
Wallace will go off for nearly 200 yards on 10 catches with a couple of touchdowns.
