I know you are probably going to pick Oklahoma this weekend, but what do you think Oklahoma State has to do in order to pull off the upset against the Sooners?

Not so fast, my friend! Both running backs – OU's Adrian Peterson and OSU's Vernand Morency – will get some yards in this game, so the real key will be whether the Cowboys can jump ahead early at home, where they have won two of the last three against the Sooners. If Oklahoma State can get some doubt in the minds of the Oklahoma players and take the game into the fourth quarter, there is a good chance for an upset.
