Coach: Mike Gundy (3rd year at Oklahoma State)
Team Name: Cowboys
2006 Overall Record: 7-6
Returning Starters: 15
To show the strength of the Big 12's South division, consider that the Oklahoma State Cowboys (8-5 overall, 4-4 Big 12) finished tied for fifth in their division but still went to a bowl game! With a dynamite offense that managed to average more than 200 YPG in both passing and rushing, the Cowboys scored an average of 35.2 PPG. They beat Alabama 34- 31 in the Independence Bowl.
Junior QB Bobby Reid (48% COMP, 2,266 YDs, 24 TDs, 11 INTs) racked up a total of 29 TDs and 2,766 YDs in both the air and on the ground. But he played inconsistently, making some bad decisions. The Cowboys want to see him run more. Senior RB Dantrell Savage (126 CAR, 820 YDs, 8 TDs) was injured part of last season and, now healthy, should be even more powerful this season. The offensive line has some holes but there are quite a few quality replacements waiting to step-up. Senior receiver Adarius Bowmen (60 REC, 1,181 YDs, 12 TDs) can break it big and will be a go-to guy.
The Cowboys, who have had an iffy defense, return sophomore LBs Patrick Lavine (70 tackles, 41 solo) and Chris Collins, both of whom were named to freshmen All-American teams. Senior defensive end Nathan Peterson (8 sacks) is back as the returning sack leader. The secondary returns three starters, all of whom can pick the ball. The front four have experience but none started last season.
The Cowboys should finish with about the same record as they did last year, making them bowl eligible again. Their major swing game is against Texas A&M, while they also have a chance at upsetting a visiting Texas team. Oklahoma State will score plenty of points and be a lot of fun to watch.
