Man in motion→OSU RB Kendall Hunter: The conference’s best running back is expected to play after suffering a minor leg injury two weeks ago in Colorado.
Key Matchup→Damian Davis vs. the OU secondary not focused on Dez Bryant: Bryant will undoubtedly be doubled up in coverage. OSU will need a second receiver to step up, much like Davis did in Bedlam last year.
Heads up→With ESPN’s GameDay crew on the library lawn, fans should be tuning in — or heading to campus — to see if Lee Corso, below, dons a Pistol Pete head or picks the Sooner wagon for the second week in a row.
Clippings→The Cowboys should stand a better chance against the Sooners than Texas Tech did, for two reasons: They’re at home, and they can run the ball. — ESPN.com’s Pat Forde →A-ha! At last, I’ve figured out a way to settle this Big 12 tiebreaker thing. Should the Cowboys fall to Oklahoma on Saturday, thus creating the three-way tie — ask Mike Gundy which team is best. Of course, he’ll only know their defenses. — SI.com’s Stewart Mandel →But in the end, this one likely will play out like the Sooners’ last two trips to Stillwater that finished on an incomplete pass in the end zone and a missed field goal at the end of the game. Look for this one to be just as close. — ESPN.com’s Tim Griffin →State has weapons to move the ball, but it won’t be able to keep up in this shootout as OU is out to make a statement here. — ESPN.com’s Bruce Feldman
