• It’s early to put the season on life support but I think this may be the right take for OSU’s season:

If Oklahoma State can work out a way to win against West Virginia, consider the season saved and the Cowboys in good shape to work out a way to piece together a winning O-line by late October when they have to start playing the heavyweights. If they drop this one though, it’s going to be hard to avoid dropping too many games over the course of the season to be competitive in the standings come November. [Inside Texas]

• Chuba Hubbard made the GoodWorks team

• Pokes missed out on the four-star safety from this small Oklahoma town but appear to be hot after this 2022 running back from rural Oklahoma

Amen, brotha.
