Oklahoma State vs. Texas A&M: Official Game Thread

(This article will be updated as the game goes on)

HOUSTON, Tx -- After nearly a month off from action, Oklahoma State is set to face a former Big 12 foe in Texas A&M here in Houston at the Academy Sports and Outdoors Texas Bowl!

Robert Allen, Marshall Levenson and myself, Zachary Lancaster, are here at NRG Stadium to bring you angles of all the action.

As the week's wore on, the game spread has shrunk from -6.5 in favor of the Aggies, to just -4.5 in favor of the Aggies 30 minutes before kickoff.

Check out our three key match-ups that you need to know.

The nation's leading rusher, Chuba Hubbard, made the decision a few weeks ago that he'll return for at least one more game, the Texas Bowl, and is ready for action.

Another great aspect of today's game is that Oklahoma State starting quarterback Spencer Sanders is healthy since suffering a thumb injury against Kansas.

Something else to make a note of is that starting safety Kolby Harvell-Peel is out for the game after suffering a leg injury against Oklahoma.

Oklahoma State just came out of the tunnel to quite an ovation from the Oklahoma State fans here. There's an insane amount of A&M fans here being so close to College Station, but there's a really good contingent of Cowboy fans.

Kick fielded at the five and returned to the 23 yard line.

Jarrick Bernard comes up with a nice stop on 1st down. Going to be seeing a lot more of him with Harvell-Peel out.

Freshman Trace Ford making his presence known early as he forces a fumble that's recovered by Israel Antwine.

Not a great start by the Pokes offense though, we're on a 4th and 21 after a 6-yard sack of Dru Brown.

Yikes. The 53-yard field goal attempt by Matt Ammendola wasn't even close.

Trace Ford is off to a great start as he's already got two solo stops and a forced fumble in the first four minutes.

Oklahoma State forces an A&M punt after a great third down stop. Will take over on their own three-yard line. Not great, but let's see if Gleeson and Gundy decide to get the nation's best running back involved.

I thought that the 37-yard pick up by Hubbard would be the highlight of the drive. Nope, Dru Brown finds Braydon Johnson from 42-yards out for the score. Impressive.

Also, that 97-yard scoring drive is the longest in Texas Bowl history. #funfact

Former Oklahoma State prospect Isaiah Spiller making a little bit of noise early on for A&M. 3 carries for 26 yards. UPDATE: 4 carries for 30 yards.

Yikes, Rodarius Williams picking up a costly PI penalty on that drive. Not sure if I agree with the call, but they won't listen to me.

Great stop there on 3rd and long by A.J. Green! Ironically enough, it was against Spiller. Forces a 4th and 8 and just out of FG range.

TAMU set to punt, they take the delay of game that puts them back five yards and in better punt range. Dillon Stoner set back to receive. Ball goes out of bounds and is marked out at the OSU 18-yard line.

WOW, Logan Carter with an aggressive block on No. 29 Debione Renfrow and Refrow jumps up and punches Carter in the head.

BROWN TO JOHNSON. Braydon Johnson almost gets in the end zone for his second touchdown of the game! 57 yards.

Dru Brown with an IMPRESSIVE (and rather acrobatic) touchdown run there. So happy for Brown as he's been in a touch situation the past two seasons.

That's the second penalty on Rodarius this half. Really need him to get that under control. Might be a little questionable, but it was close enough to call.

Oof, Spiller just dropped that one.

Oh Tom Hutton....that punt went just 17 yards from the back of the end zone and A&M takes over at their own 22-yard line.

Really not sure what's been going on with Hutton, but he's struggled so much this season.

After the Hutton shanked punt, A&M gets in from one-yard out. The drive of Hutton's shank, the Cowboy offense really struggled.

Yikes, another missed field goal for Ammendola, this time 46-yards. He's usually automatic from that far out. Special teams continue to struggle for Oklahoma State.

Time to cut bait with this punter. He’s been a big bust as a recruit.

Our kicking game right now is shaky. We better get a lot closer to make a FG . Should try another punter.

Cowboys with a BIG defensive stop there on third and long. Stoner out to receive the A&M punt.

Cowboys really need to get something going on offense. They've stalled out the past two drives. Will we see Spencer Sanders more?

DANG. Hutton with the 52-yard punt.....that's what's up.

Not great as Kellen Mond breaks off a 67-yarder to put A&M up 21-14. There's still nearly 11 minutes left for Oklahoma State to answer.

Wow, that was one heck of a fake there by Dru Brown as he picks up 12-yards and the first down.

4th and one, Spencer Sanders comes in to pick up the first and is stopped short. Seems like a bit of a nail and coffin moment there as the A&M crowd goes wild.

Poorly coached game by Gundy

I’ve been a Hutton apologist all year. Agreeing with RA that Hutton punts smart for field position. However, he has proven he can’t punt for yardage or hang time. Just not good.
