Next Saturday's game will be OSU's second-ever appearance on Fox, the first being the 2010 Cotton Bowl against Mississippi.

WALK-ON JASE CHILCOAT COULD RETURN AS NO. 3 QB

With Lunt out with a knee injury for at least the immediate future, OSU is now only two deep at quarterback.

J.W. Walsh and Clint Chelf are the new 1-2, of course. But the other two quarterbacks on the roster — Daxx Garman and Cody Peterson — are both ineligible this season, offensive coordinator Todd Monken said following Saturday's win against Louisiana-Lafayette. Garman is sitting out and redshirting after transferring from Arizona, while Peterson is a walk-on who transferred from Arizona Western Junior College.

So, who's No. 3?

Jase Chilcoat, perhaps?

Chilcoat is no longer playing football, but at one time was a walk-on quarterback from Midwest City.

“He's still around campus somewhere,” Monken said. “We'll have to re-call him, because we don't have anybody else. I was on the headset going, ‘Might have to get him,' because at least he knows some of what we're doing.

“Otherwise, you'd have to go Joe Randle in the Wildcat (formation).”

Was Monken joking? Half-joking? Maybe, maybe not. OSU coach Mike Gundy said Chilcoat could be an option.

And Chilcoat is definitely “around campus somewhere.” In fact, he was amongst the press Saturday, practicing doing radio play-by-play of the game as part of a broadcasting class that Voice of the Cowboys Dave Hunziker teaches in OSU's sports media program.

Is it time for Chilcoat to get out of the broadcast booth and onto the practice field this week?

“I don't know what my life will be like in 24 hours…” Chilcoat said in a tweet Monday afternoon.
