For the first time since 2011, the Oklahoma State Cowboys vs. Tulsa Golden Hurricane will clash.
Oklahoma State will once again look to turn things up notch offensively while the Golden Hurricane try to establish their pro style offense.
Tulsa Golden Hurricane
Tulsa was easily one of the most impressive teams last season.
A surprising 10-3 season was built from almost perfection from both sides of the ball. Tulsa, who was on cloud 9 last season with all their success, now has a lot of gaps to fill heading into this season.
Both the offense and defense lost their star playmakers and it’s expected they likely take a step or two back this season.
Expect Tulsa to really look to establish the run game here, as it will be their strength early on.
The offensive line is the lone spot that didn’t lose much. They return 4 starters and if it is anything like last season, they should provide giant gaps for their backs.
Tulsa had 8 300 yard rushing games in 2016, one of the best marks in the nation.
Oklahoma State Cowboys
The Cowboys offense has been known for their run and gun style and things are going to even pick up a couple notches here in 2017.
Oklahoma State will return their key offensive stars in QB Mason Rudolph and wide receiver James Washington.
QB Mason Rudolph actually considered jumping to the NFL after last season, but decided to return for his senior year because of the potential of this offense.
Rudolph has averaged 300.5 yards per game throughout his career, 2nd in the NCAA amongst active leaders. On top of all that, he comes in off a season that saw him throw for 4091 yards while tossing 28 touchdowns to just 4 interceptions.
Justice Hill also returns, as he looks to make the impact on the ground.
Hill rushed for 1142 yards last season and earned Big 12 Offensive Freshman of the Year honors.
