How the Cowboys Can Win
Oklahoma State needs to get in, take care of business, and get out with no problems or injuries. The Cowboys are almost 8-touchdown favorites, which is crazy under any circumstances, but really all they need to do is win handily with very few mistakes, and it’ll be a success wrap up of the non-conference schedule.
How the Golden Lions Can Win
A miracle. It is going to take nothing short of a miracle for Arkansas-Pine Bluff to get a win.
