This game was postponed a week as Tulsa has struggled with COVID-19 effects. Neither team has played a game yet this season.
The delay should not influence the outcome of the game as Oklahoma State is one of the more talented teams in the country.
Tulsa is just hoping for a decent showing and a chance to see their guys in live game situations. An upset would be really unlikely.
Tulsa Golden Hurricane
These teams met last season with Tulsa losing 40-21. As you can see by the spread there is not much expectation that things have gotten better for the Golden Hurricane.
Assuming that everyone is healthy Tulsa is hoping experience will lead to improvement this season. Eight starters return on offense.
Zach Smith is a former Power 5 transfer and is solid at quarterback. Fellow senior running back Shamari Brooks rushed for over 1000 yards last season.
It is the defense that is the greater concern though. Just three starters return from a team that was in the lower half in the AAC last season.
Once they start conference play they should be fairly competitive but against Oklahoma State it will likely be an ugly result.
Oklahoma State Cowboys
It has been a long offseason for Oklahoma State. I love their talent this season and am excited to finally see it on full display.
You have to start with Chuba Hubbard, the best running back in the college game, maybe. He lead the nation in rushing last year, that is not up for debate. He is a threat to score on every carry. .
Spencer Sanders was an effective dual-threat at quarterback last season. If he improves as many do in their second year, this offense has a chance to be the best in the nation.
The defense was mediocre in the Big 12 last season. 10 returning starters give them a great chance to be a lot better. If that happens this team could be playoff-bound for the first time.

4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Oklahoma State -23.5
I can see this one getting to -24 but I am not overly concerned. I can see the Cowboys winning each quarter by a TD. That is all it will take.
I am a tad worried about a backdoor cover if Tulsa sticks with its regular lineup throughout the game. They might win the final quarter and mess with the number in a meaningless way. First-half numbers could be a way to go here.
