Remember these guys, that band of brothers who acknowledged and welcomed the burden of providing stability in a season of transition?
Well, there's still time, because the Cowboys D is needed now more than ever.
OSU's offense is patchwork at best, with injuries robbing the unit of playmakers and depleting depth to the breaking point. Yards and points will become harder to come by as the Pokes venture into the stiffest stretch of the schedule.

The defense is, well, we know not. Yet know this, it'll have to be good for the Cowboys to survive and even thrive over the final six weeks.
