Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy said Sunday night that he expects every player who was available at the start of Saturday's win against Baylor to practice by Wednesday.

That includes Josh Cooper (hamstring) and Jeremy Smith (hand), who both left Saturday's game with their injury and did not return.

Cooper started against Baylor and had one catch for four yards on OSU's first drive but left the game with what Gundy called a “little bit of a (hamstring) pull.” Smith tallied 77 yards on just three carries but injured a knuckle in his hand on a 63-yard run in the third quarter.

Kickoff time set for Kansas State game

The kickoff time for OSU's home game against Kansas State has been set for 7 p.m. Saturday.

Saturday's meeting will be the first time OSU and No. 17 KSU square off with both teams ranked in The Associated Press top 25.
