Oklahoma State at Kansas: Official Game Thread

Zach Lancaster

It's officially game day for Oklahoma State once again, this time on the road for the first time this season as they take on Kansas. Kick off is scheduled for 2:30 p.m. CT and will be televised on ESPN.

Oklahoma State is coming off a 27-13 win over West Virginia last week in freshman quarterback Shane Illingworth's first career start for the Pokes. Redshirt sophomore quarterback Spencer Sanders suffered a high ankle sprain in week one and will be a game time decision to play against Kansas.

Running back Chuba Hubbard has struggled to get going in the first two games of the season, but senior running back LD Brown has stepped up and made the most of his increased role as he put up 103 yards and a touchdown last week.

As for this Cowboy defense, they're playing just about as good as anyone in the country as they've allowed just 20 points through the first two games and will be looking to continue against Kansas.

We'll be updated big plays, scoring plays and turnovers in the article, but will be running a live game thread below in the comment section. Join in on the conversation as Marshall Levenson and myself will be running things.

Early development: Kansas RB Pooka Williams is limping early after his first carry.

Williams is the workhorse of the KU offense

Great first run there by Hubbard, 12 yards and the first down.

Heck of a move there by Hubbard. Puts his hand in the ground, gets the spin move and picks up eight yards. Noice.

Goodness, that was a heck of a stop on LD Brown.

Always tough to have to settle for a field goal, especially after a solid drive, but Alex Hale remains perfect on the season.

That's a rare drop there by Dillon Stoner

Oklahoma State needs to settle down on offense and make something happen. The offensive line looked good on that drive, but they weren't able to make anything happen.

Side note: WHAT A BOOMING PUNT THERE BY TOM HUTTON.

Late entry today...but in the thread now! GovPokes! Looking fairly sharp on both sides of the ball so far

Holmes has looked strong in pass cover

This KU offense is just no match for Oklahoma State's defense. They can't do anything.

That's six KU drives and six KU punts. This defense is feeling itself today.

I love watching good defense. Takes me back to the days of Leslie O’Neal, Mark Moore, Philip Dokes, Duck Washington, Sun Drain III, and my favorite - Rick “Cowboy” Antle

I understand that we're only three games into this season and the Cowboys haven't played any offensive world beaters, but this defense is just so sound.

Another good pass breakup by Holmes. I think that’s 3 for him so far

Nobody can question Chuba Hubbard's drive ever again. This game proves he just needed a little time to get going.

Pick number 1!

The Cowboy defense held KU to just 60 first half yards...In comparison, OSU put up 362 total offensive yards. They also forced seven-straight punts and a interception in KU's eight first half drives. That's a big yikes.

That's how you start a half Chuba. Nice 28-yard run there.

I don't think there's a reason to pull Illingworth out of this game. He needs all the experience he can get. Now, I think you pull Wallace and Hubbard and put younger backs and receivers in, but not Illingworth.

Offensive starters are still in the game. Probably (hopefully) see them get switched out after this drive.

Wow...Ford got in there fast. That play had no chance for KU

After that 11-yard sack by Ford, KU has 59-yards of total offense. That's one less yard than they had going into halftime.

Bullock going in

Nice throw, nice catch and drag for extra YAC by Anderson

Watching Desmond Jackson....I think we’ll be just fine at RB after this year

It appears that Bullock was able to get the Tulsa game out of his head during this first drive. Let's hope he can stay level-headed.

Excited to see what Dominic Richardson can do this afternoon.

All backups in on D....holding the ‘Hawks to 0 score and sub-100yd total offense isn’t going to happen this time. But they’re getting good game time

Richardson is running very hard!

Good game, good thread. We’ll keep at it and maybe we’ll get some more readers in the game thread in the future. Good job, Zach & Marshall
