With star quarterback Mason Rudolph and an abundance of offensive weapons back in 2017, the Oklahoma State Cowboys have dark horse hopes of winning the Big 12 and qualifying for the College Football Playoff. The schedule generally seems to break in their favor, as projected contenders Oklahoma and Kansas State play OSU at T. Boone Pickens Stadium.
An early road game against Pittsburgh is no walkover, though. Meanwhile, if an October run of Texas, West Virginia and OU goes south, the Cowboys could quickly find their season in peril.
