Coming off their first loss of the season, the Cowboys head to Manhattan, Kan., Saturday to take on Kansas State. The story of the week was Justin Blackmon’s arrest and subsequent suspension, so who will step up for Oklahoma State this week? Brandon Chatmon wrote a story earlier this week about the Wildcats’ 100th-ranked defense and how they’re giving up many “explosive plays.” Will OSU rely on Kendall Hunter without Justin Blackmon? Or will Josh Cooper, Tracy Moore, Michel Harrison step up to replace their star teammate?
Here are our staff’s predictions for OSU at Kansas State:
Brandon Chatmon: OSU, 35-17
John Helsley: OSU, 31-27
Berry Tramel: OSU, 41-35
Jenni Carlson: OSU, 41-31
Jake Trotter: OSU, 34-32
Mike Baldwin: OSU, 38-28
Mike Sherman: OSU, 31-27
