Daily Bullets (Dec. 2): We’ll Cross Texas’ Goal and Then We’ll Sing ‘Oklahoma State’



Go Pokes, beat the Horns (again)

Here’s all the need-to-knows: tv details + betting lines, series details, and picks for the game (PFB and CBS Sports)  

Three Thoughts

• Recent history (wins because of culture) would say the Pokes are the favorite – but the Cowboys’ margin of error will be tight today (PFB) 

• The definitive story on why Ollie Gordon is at OSU (and not Texas) was solid – Gordon joins a team full of Cowboys the Longhorns never called to try and upset them in the title game (Sellout Crowd) 

• What a pairing today – Ollie Gordon is an “unstoppable force” taking on Texas’ stout defensive tackles, “immovable object(s)”. 

Oklahoma State running back Ollie Gordon II is the runaway favorite for the Doak Walker Award as the nation’s best rusher with a FBS-leading 1,580 yards. In Texas defensive tackle T’Vondre Sweat, Gordon faces the toughest test of his career. Sweat and Byron Murphy II rate as the No. 1 and 2 interior defenders in college football, per Pro Football Focus, and lead a Longhorns defense that holds opponents to a freakish 2.9 yards per carry.

Two Quotes

• It’s hard to argue with Texas coach Steve Sarkisians’ observation about Ollie Gordon: 

“A lot of his best runs come in the second half when teams wear down and he gets the hard and tough yards, but he has the ability to make the big and explosive plays and they have a variety of run schemes that they operate with out of the pistol, where they can get to all of their runs and they look similar,” said Sarkisian.

• “Gundy needs to be the most Gundy he can be in this game”

One Question

• Can the Pokes bring Mike Gundy home his second league title?

Non-OSU Bullets

• It shouldn’t be surprising but $1m-$2m for a good quarterback in the portal is wild
• Restoring faith in Americans – most rewatched Christmas movies according to surveys – Home Alone is No. 1
