Oklahoma State looks to stop its leaks after losing two-straight in league play to Kansas and Kansas State as Iowa State comes to Stillwater on Saturday afternoon. The 2:30 p.m. kick against ISU (4-5) and OSU (6-3) sets up what could be a pivotal showdown to help determine how the bottom — yes, the bottom — of the Big 12 standings will shake out in conference play.
Can OSU right the ship against the swirling defense of the Cyclones? Without Spencer Sanders and likely Garret Rangel, OSU will have to do so with No. 3 QB Gunnar Gundy likely running the show as he makes his first career start.
Buckle up, folks! We’ll be following along with the action below in our live updates. They will be posted in reverse chronological order so most recent updates will be available at the top of the page.
FIRST QUARTER, 6:40: After Gunnar Gundy’s helmet gets knocked off, SPENCER SANDERS goes in to take the snap at QB for Oklahoma State. That’s unexpected. He hands off on third down, OSU gets stuffed and the Cowboys will punt. Doubt we see Sanders again, but that was bizarre.
FIRST QUARTER, 15:00: With Spencer Sanders out and Garret Rangel doubtful, Gunnar Gundy makes his first career start for the Cowboys today. First pass attempt is a swing pass to Dominic Richardson for a first down. Gundy the son of OSU coach Mike Gundy (duh) who had a really productive career at Stillwater High School. Lightly recruited but a film junkie who takes the opportunity seriously. Excited to see what he can do.
PREGAME INJURY NEWS: Spencer Sanders is out and Garret Rangel is doubtful, setting up freshman Gunnar Gundy to start for OSU at quarterback, per Dave Hunziker. Offensive lineman Preston Wilson also out. On defense, defensive ends Trace Ford and Tyler Lacy won’t be available, and defensive back Thomas Harper is also out.
