Oklahoma State-West Virginia: Official Game Thread
STILLWATER -- Both Oklahoma State and West Virginia cleared COVID-19 protocol on Friday and the Big 12 opener for both teams is finally here!
The Cowboys are wearing all-white 1987 throwback uniforms to honor Cowboy great Thurman Thomas, who's the first induction into Oklahoma State football's Ring of Honor.
The big question going into this game for Oklahoma State is at offensive line and quarterback. Quarterback Spencer Sanders left the game against Tulsa at the end of the first quarter with a lower leg injury. On the offensive line, Charlie Dickey lost guard Cole Birmingham and tackle Hunter Anthony.
Spencer is a game-time decision, though he is dressed out and went through pregame warmups.
