2009 CFB Preview: Oklahoma State

The Cowboys are going to be loaded this year on offense. Their biggest obstacle is going to be heading to Norman in the last game of the year. I would not be surprised if that game featured two undefeated teams, like 2006 tOSU vs. Michigan... and Oklahoma would be a touchdown favorite.

Otherwise, Oklahoma State will be a slight dog against Texas and favored in every other game. In Week 1, the Pokes get to face Georgia, which I had hoped would be a contrarian spot, but it seems like the cat is out of the bag.

I think Oklahoma State takes the record for biggest dropoff between 10-2 and 12-0, primarily due the game against the Sooners. For their chances of winning the MNC, 50-1 isn't going to cut it, unless a fortune teller on the boardwalk tells you Sam Bradford is going to tear his ACL. Over nine wins is close to having value with the median lines. If you think the Pokes will play above their Vegas median, it definitely has value.
