Oklahoma State vs. Iowa State: Official Game Thread

ZachLancaster

STILLWATER -- After nearly three weeks off due to open weeks, both planned and unplanned, Oklahoma State is back in action in Boone Pickens Stadium! The No. 6 ranked Cowboys are set to face off against the No. 17 ranked Iowa State Cyclones, one of the favorites in the Big 12.

Redshirt sophomore quarterback Spencer Sanders is back this week after missing the first three games after the season after suffering a high ankle sprain against Tulsa in week one.

Running back Chuba Hubbard has gotten better with each passing week, as has receiver Tylan Wallace. Freshman quarterback Shane Illingworth did a great job in filling in for Sanders as he helped lead the Pokes to a 3-0 record. He'll also be available today against Iowa State.

The Cowboy defense is set to face a tough Cyclone offense led by quarterback Brock Purdy, running back Breece Hall and tight end  Charlie Kolar. The Cowboys have had one of the best defenses in not just the conference, but in the country as they're led by Amen Ogbongbemiga, Kolby Harvell-Peel, Rodarius Williams and Trace Ford.

Decent offensive start to this game for Spencer Sanders and Co.

Oof. Rough way to end a nice opening drive. Cyclones stop the Pokes, Alex Hale pushes a field goal wide right.

That's a first down saving tackle right there by Calvin Bundage.

Pass by Sanders was tipped at the line and intercepted by ISU. Offense needs to settle down.

Can't put that ISU score on the Cowboy defense. They were given a really short field to deal with and still did well.

Wow....I think Sanders has let himself get over-amped. Hope he settles down & settles-in.

Does it seem like we’re slipping on the turf more than normal?

Yikes, not a great offensive start to this game. Sanders is 7-of-11 for 61 yards and a pick and Hubbard has six carries for 19 yards. ISU defense is looking good.

Kind of wondering if OSU showed up to play today.

Once again, another big break there for #OkState, this time with a missed ISU field goal. 1st and 10 for the Cowboys on their own 31 yard line.

That was such an impressive pass there from Sanders to Woods. Seems like the Cowboys have figured it out...for now.

Schneider going down after the play, but walking off the field under his own power is such a great sign! Cowboys and Dickey can't afford to lose anymore offensive linemen this season.

Look at Spencer Sanders picking up that first down. Starting to look more confident as this game goes on.

This is the Spencer everyone expected when the season started. He's still learning, but goodness he's good.

Spencer and Chuba's starting to feel it. This is such a fun football game to watch so far.

I LOVE how physical Tylan plays. I—State DB was doing some woofin’ after Tylan’s false start then Tylan puts 26 flat on his ass with some mustard on a one-on-one block 👍

Not exactly the drive I was hoping for there. Hopefully defense can clutch up here

Breece Hall was open the moment his touched the ball.

Amen got a shot in on Purdy at the end of that play, but Ogbongbemiga left the field after going down with an injury. Also, not really sure what the defense was thinking on that play.

Trace Ford is such a bad man. Goodness, what a sack.

Nice defensive stand, with a lucky break in Kolar dropping an easy catch. Purdy got BUSTED by one of our rushers on the 3rd down pass attempt

NICE punt downed inside the 5 by Presley! Now let the D rip & tear!

Holy Tre Sterling. That deflection was one of the best of his career.

Several iffy calls from the refs, the Cyclones get into the end zone for six.

Glad that one is over! In for the win, that’s all that counts
