Get ready for a Pac-12 vs. SEC Challenge! Oh wait, not yet.

In a game that could affect both the conference and national title races, Oklahoma State (3-0) will travel to Texas A&M (2-0) Saturday. Brandon Weeden, the nation’s leading passer with 384.7 yards per game, has helped the Cowboys offense collect 157 points and average 601 yards per game, a mark that ranks second in the country. Leading the Aggies, however, Ryan Tannehill holds a 72.3 completion percentage and has yet to be sacked behind the A&M line.

For the first time ever, Oklahoma State and Texas A&M will meet with both teams ranking in the Associated Press top 10. The Aggies lead the series, winning 17 of the previous 28 meetings, but the Cowboys took the 2010 game with a 38-35 thriller in Stillwater, Okla.

2.) the richest most powerful and all-seeing, all-doing alumni booster in college football in T. Boone Pickens. The stadium is not the only building on the OSU campus with his name on it.

But after the first 11 win season in school history, featuring the most explosive offense ever at Oklahoma State, the Cowboys will soon become more nationally known for their winning ways and exciting white-collar football.

Last night at the McDonald’s All-American Game Jam Fest, pretty much everyone in the building thought Duke recruit Marshall Plumlee won the dunk competition. An overwhelming majority of the people at the Chicago State Convocation Center thought Plumlee took it, but the prize went to Oklahoma State recruit LeBryan James, who himself was a bit surprised he took home the award.

“I was, he’s (Plumlee) a great dunker, unfortunately for him the judges thought I was better, and that’s why I earned this trophy.“
