On the cusp of potentially the biggest college football game of the weekend, some breaking news may be costly for Oklahoma State. According to ESPN’s Jake Trotter, Oklahoma State will be short two offensive linemen for their Top 25 match-up against TCU.
According to the report, right tackle Zachary Crabtree and right guard Larry Williams are both unavailable against the Horned Frogs. Crabtree was injured in last week’s win over Pitt an Williams suffered an injury in practice this week.
A mainstay on the offensive line, Crabtree, a preseason All-Big 12 selection, has started 36 games in his career, making him the most experienced offensive lineman in the conference.
Sophomore Johnny Wilson is the most likely candidate to replace Williams and redshirt freshman Teven Jenkins should fill in for Crabtree again this week.
TCU (#16) at Oklahoma State (#6) is one of just two games today featuring Top 25 teams. Kickoff is set for 2:30 PM and the game will be televised on ESPN.
