•Breakdown: The Tigers will be making an ascent toward No. 1 in the country and Faurot Field isn't a friendly place to play. Chase Daniel and Jeremy Maclin will present the Cowboy defense its biggest test so far.

•Chance to dirty OSU's season: 80 percent

Oct. 18: vs. Baylor
•Breakdown: Can Art Briles turn Baylor around? Maybe, but not by October.

Oct. 25: at Texas
•Breakdown: As far as morale goes, it might be better for the Cowboys to spot Texas two touchdowns then try to make a comeback, rather than to let another lead slip away.

•Chance to dirty OSU's season: 65 percent

Nov. 1: vs. Iowa State
•Breakdown: Does it feel like it has been a long time since you won a conference championship, Cowboy fans? Talk to the Cyclones. Their last conference title came in 1912, and this year won't be any different.

•Chance to dirty OSU's season: 17 percent

Nov. 8: at Texas Tech
•Breakdown: At some point in this series, a team is going to score 60 points and lose.

Nov. 15: at Colorado
•Breakdown: It's quite possible that this turns out to be the most important game on the Cowboys' schedule. And maybe the Buffaloes', too.

•Chance to dirty OSU's season: 48 percent

Nov. 29: vs. Oklahoma
•Breakdown: Just how loud can it get in the Boone Pickens Stadium with the new west end zone? This is the day we find out.
