Oklahoma State fans received great news on Tuesday when it was reported that star running back Chuba Hubbard would, in fact, play in the Texas Bowl.
After leading the nation in rushing yards this season (1,936) it was widely speculated that Hubbard would skip the game and prepare for the NFL Draft instead. However, the situation became a little more clear on Tuesday in terms of the bowl game but not the NFL where Hubbard says he’s taking that on a day-by-day basis.
One of the highlights in promoting OSU’s Texas Bowl match up with Texas A&M is Hubbard’s average of 183 rushing yards per game against an Aggie defense that surrenders 129.1 yards per game on the ground. Now its confirmed that fans will get that match up after all…sort of. Texas A&M will be without defensive lineman Justin Madubuike who is going to sit out the bowl game to prepare for the NFL Draft. That’s what makes the Hubbard news even more exciting for OSU fans.
