Oklahoma State football: The Oklahoman's picks for OSU vs. Arizona

FROM STAFF REPORTS Published: September 7, 2012


Here is a look at how our coverage crew picked Saturday's OSU-Arizona game:


* OSU 30, Arizona 20: Wes Lunt throws his first incompletion, but also three TDs.


* OSU 45, Arizona 27: The Cowboy defense, a veteran unit, will excel on the road and against Arizona's spread offense. That will take pressure off Wes Lunt and give the Cowboy offense a chance to get going.

GINA MIZELL, OSU beat writer

* OSU 37, Arizona 23: Bold prediction? Wes Lunt throws an incompletion. Just kidding. The true freshman QB will throw a first-half pick, but respond with two second-half touchdowns to help the Cowboys pull away.

JOHN HELSLEY, OSU beat writer

* OSU 31, Arizona 21: The Zona Zoo? Is that a reference to some otherwise unknown rowdiness, or the home to a bad 'Cats defense that can't seem to change its stripes?

SCOTT WRIGHT, OSU recruiting

* OSU 38, Arizona 16: Wes Lunt gets his first real test, but Joseph Randle powers the victory.

MIKE BALDWIN, Beat Baldwin

* OSU 38, Arizona 20: All eyes are on QB Wes Lunt, but facing an offense that compiled 624 yards last week, OSU's defense can make a statement.
