Oklahoma State features one of the most dynamic offenses in the country, and the Cowboys showed it off in their opening weekend 84-point win over FCS Savannah State. Against stronger opposition last weekend, however, that offense wasn't enough, as the Cowboys lost to the Arizona Wildcats, 59-38. They'll be facing a Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns side that has won its first two games of the season this Saturday afternoon.
Both Oklahoma State's passing and rushing attacks are currently ranked No. 7 in the nation, and the Cowboys have been the third-highest scoring team in the nation. Freshman Wes Lunt leads the passing attack, and junior Joseph Randle has been shouldering the bulk of the load on the ground. The Cowboys' defense will need to improve from their trip to Arizona, as they allowed the Wildcats to rack up 636 yards of offense against them.
ULL doesn't feature a particularly explosive passing game, but they'll focus on playing strong defense and controlling the clock by keeping the ball on the ground. Sophomore Alonzo Harris currently leads ULL in rushing for the season.
Game time, TV channel: This game will kick off at 12 p.m. ET from Boone Pickens Stadium.
Point spread: Oklahoma State will be favored by 23.5 when they face ULL this weekend. The over/under has been set at 73.5.
