1. OSU cornerbacks Justin Gilbert and Kevin Peterson
vs. Lamar wide receiver Kevin Johnson
With Lamar being overmatched I decided to go with some of the interesting matchups involving former Oklahoma State players now playing for Lamar. I would say it is a good thing that Kevin Johnson and Joe Okafor weren't quoted in the Sports Illustrated series. That would be "dirty." I wouldn't want to be them if they had been quoted.
Johnson going against Gilbert will look like practices back in the day on the fields east of Gallagher-Iba Arena. Johnson has excellent speed as evidenced by his two kickoff return for touchdowns last season and his 13 touchdown catches last year and two already this season. Speed on speed and I can tell you Gilbert has the edge, but it will be a good battle with some extra motivation.
Advantage: OSU cornerbacks Justin Gilbert and Kevin Peterson
Jenkins is identified by some of his fellow offensive linemen as the guy that has really come on to lead the line. His calls have been good and he is playing very physical. I like Jenkins over Okafor on strength and technique, which has been very good.
Advantage: OSU center Jake Jenkins
vs. Lamar cornerback Tyus McGlothen
Advantage: OSU ride Receivers Tracy Moore, Charlie Moore, and JhaJuan Seales
No. 11 Oklahoma State 59, Lamar 0
Defensively, the Cowboys should be hungry and need to pay attention to quarterback Caleb Berry. He is playing well but the Cardinals aren't a dominant run team. Covering the receivers will be the biggest challenge for the defense. If you notice we also have freshman kicker Ben Grogan kicking first field goal of his career.
