One of the best non New Years Day’s Bowl will take place at Camping World Stadium on December 28th. The Oklahoma State Cowboys and the Virginia Tech Hokies will face off in this one.
Both of these teams come in with 9-3 records, and although their styles of play differ, are a pretty even match up. The Cowboys currently sit as 6.5 point favorites.
This will be the first meeting ever between the two teams.
Virginia Tech Hokies
The Virginia Tech Hokies had higher hopes then the Camping World Bowl, but a bad stretch of back to back games derailed their chances for a New Years day Bowl.
They lost to Miami in a game they were underdogs, but the next week they seemed to let that Miami game affect them and they ended up getting upset by the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets by a final score of 28-22.
Since that point they have won back to back games over Pittsburgh and Virginia, and in the game against Virginia the defense allowed zero points.
For the Hokies their strength lies with the defense. So far this year they are giving up only 13.5 points per game, but that is going to be really tested in this game.
They did give up 28 points to Miami and 31 points to Clemson, and the defense is going to need to play better then they did in those two games if they want to win this game.
The offense has played decent this year, but at times it has been the downfall of this team. They are currently averaging 28.8 points and 404 yards per game.
Freshman quarterback Josh Jackson has been good for the most part this year, but at times he makes decisions that remind everyone he is still a freshman.
So far this year has thrown for 2743 yards, 19 touchdowns and eight interceptions. Over the last five games he hasn’t thrown more then 218 yards though.
Oklahoma State Cowboys
On the other side of this match up is the Oklahoma State Cowboys who have had a good season, but a loss against Kansas State two games ago really put a damper on the season, and what it could have been.
They did bounce back in their last game though against Kansas and ran up the score again on the way to a 58-17 victory.
For the Cowboys their strategy is pretty simple. They are going to play in some high scoring games, and they hope their offense will make up for the problems that their defense has.
The offense comes into this game averaging 46.2 points and over 578 yards per game. The defense however is giving up 30 points and 400 yards per game.
The offense led by Mason Rudolph who has been dynamic this year. He has thrown for 4553 yards, 35 touchdowns and nine interceptions.
To win this game the Cowboys are going to need to find a way to get the offense rolling against a very good defense.
Rudolph is going to need to get off to a hot start, and they really need to try and push the tempo of the game into their favor.

I think this game will be played at a fast tempo, and the Hokies offense won’t be able to keep up.
