OSU vs. Texas A&M: Five spot
One thought comes to mind with the Cowboys and Aggies colliding on ESPN tonight: Shootout! Both offenses are explosive, not that the two defenses don't have potential difference makers. Here's a look at five guys in the crosshairs of what figures to be a major Big 12 South swing game:

Brandon Weeden, QB, OSU
The Cowboys quarterback has lived quite comfortably in the pocket through three games, rarely feeling pressure. That will change tonight. He'll be pressed to make quick decisions and unload the ball fast in the passing game.
Jerrod Johnson, QB, A&M
Johnson can be erratic and so far hasn't lived up to the preseason hype of Big 12 Offensive Player of the Year. Still, when he's on, he's a handful, with an ability to run or pass on the go.
Von Miller, LB, A&M
Slowed by an ankle injury, Miller has yet to get off as the returning NCAA sackmaster, held sackless through three games. For the Aggies to consistently pressure Weeden, they'll need Miller at his blitzing best.
Orie Lemon, LB, OSU
Because of Johnson's dual-threat abilities, there's much to account for with the Aggies. OSU's fastest linebacker, Lemon must help contain the Aggies QB and be ready to pounce on running backs Cyrus Gray and Christine Michael.
Yes, it's a work day. And a school night. And 6:30 represents an early start if you're driving in after closing time. So what? Your Cowboys need you in a game that could swing their season either way. Time to represent.
