The 2015 Oklahoma State Cowboys football team expects to compete with TCU and Baylor for the Big-Twelve Conference title. Head Coach Mike Gundy is going with sophomore Mason Rudolph as the starting quarterback. Cowboys fans didn’t know what to expect from week to week last season. The Cowboys lost five in a row, before winning the “BEDLAM” game at the University of Oklahoma. The Cowboys went on the defeat the Washington Huskies in the Cactus Bowl. There is momentum carrying in this season. There are many in the College Football landscape that believe the Cowboys can become a playoff, team. Gundy has done an admirable job entering his tenth season in Stillwater. As much as Oklahoma State wants to say Thursday’s contest is a give me game the Mid-American Conference can play football with the big boys. Mount Pleasant, Michigan is a college town, a lot like Stillwater, Oklahoma, and a Thursday Night ESPNU contest show the growth the CMU program. The game may not have had the same aura if it was being played on a Saturday, but College Football fans are eager to watch any team on television. The Oklahoma State offense shouldn’t have a problem moving the football, and the talented defense should be able to shutdown CMU.
The Central Michigan Chippewas have a new head, coach. John Bonamego takes over for Dan Enos and has lofty expectations in his initial season. Quarterback Cooper Rush can handle whatever opponents throws his way, but there is a lack of playmakers on offense. The teams success will depend on how well they adjust to the new system. Thursday Night is not a good time to experiment, the Chippewas have to be ready for an all-out war. CMU is clearly not on the same level as Oklahoma State talent wise. The Chippewas must play aggressively on both sides of the football and make plays. Central Michigan goes on the road to face Syracuse and Michigan State of power conferences in two of the next three games. Rush was the number-four passer in the Conference last season and is the key to the team’s success this season. The offensive line must hold up Thursday, the Oklahoma State D-line is already talking about how they will dominate. Central Michigan must take it as a challenge. The home crowd can only do so much, the offense and defense must come into the game with a positive mindset.
