Welcome to the official start of the 2019 college football season. Now that Week 0 is over, it’s time for the rest of the schools to get their seasons kicked off, and we have a dandy for you here in Corvallis.
This will be the first ever meeting between Oklahoma State and Oregon State, and the third Power 5 vs. Power 5 matchup of the day, as most schools are opting to play more meaningful non-conference games to start their season’s these days.
Oklahoma State Cowboys
This will be the toughest of the three scheduled non-conference games for the Cowboys, as they face McNeese State and Tulsa before they kick off their Big 12 schedule at Texas on September 21st, so a win here will most likely give OK State a 3-0 buffer before facing off against the Longhorns in Austin.
The key to victory, in what should be a shootout, will be whether or not their makeshift defense will be able to hold off the high flying Oregon State offense. I’m damn near sure that whoever coined the term “stopgap” had the 2019 Oklahoma State defense in mind. This is definitely their achilles heel.
The Cowboys will most likely rely on their run game to pound the Beavers D into submission most of the game, but watch out for them to air it out as well and expose the Oregon State secondary. As of the time of this article, the Cowboys still hadn’t named their starting QB, but both Spencer Sanders and Dru Brown could see action in the season opener.
Oregon State Beavers
Like Oklahoma State, this is the toughest game on the non-conference schedule for the Beavers who also have games against Hawaii and Cal Poly before they open the regular season against #25 Stanford at home on September 28th.
On paper, the Beavers look to have their hands more than full in this season opening matchup, but if their O line can manhandle Oklahoma State’s makeshift D line and buy Jake Luton some time, he can put the Beavers in a situation where this could be a score for score type of evening.
Defensively, all the Beavers can hope to do is stop the Cowboys more times than they stop them. This one may not go to overtime, but I can say that it should be a one possession game in the 4th quarter.

If you like offense, then this game should be for you. Neither team is going to wow anybody with their ability to shut down their opponent, which makes this the perfect night cap for a busy first full Saturday of college football.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Oregon State + 15.5
This one should be a shootout, but I don’t think it will be as big of a victory for Oklahoma State as the bookies are making it out to be.
Take Oklahoma State to win this one on the road, but take Oregon State to cover the spread.
