ESPN has OSU at TU as one of their top non-AQ games to watch in 2011: “On paper, the Golden Hurricane have plenty of returning talent, including C-USA Offensive Player of the Year G.J. Kinne. But their schedule to open the year is brutal. They start at Oklahoma and also play the Cowboys, who are expected to be a Top 15 team. But this one is at home, potentially giving them a shot at the upset.” I’m sorry, but there will be no upset. (ESPN)
