It might be the biggest game Oklahoma State plays all season. The Cowboy Kickoff Classic between OSU and defending National Champs, Florida State.
The Cowboys and Seminoles have played 4 times in each programs history, with OSU’s lone win coming in 1958 at the inaugural and only Bluegrass Bowl by a score of 15-6.
Since then, OSU has lost the last 3 meetings.
This game stacks against the Cowboys as they are unranked facing an FSU team that went undefeated last season and boasting the Heisman Trophy winner in quarterback Jameis Winston.
Winston is trying to become just the second player since Archie Griffin to win consecutive Heisman Trophies.
However, for Oklahoma State, they are well aware it’s not just Winston’s arm they have to pay attention to. It’s his ability to scramble and make plays outside the pocket.
If OSU does in fact beat the Noles, it will mark the first time in program history they’ve beaten a team who is ranked number one in either the AP or Coaches Poll.
One thing is for sure, the Cowboys are excited about the game and don’t fear Florida State because of their impressive resume.
