Big 12 college football: Eckel picks Oklahoma St. at Oregon St.

Game is Friday at 10:30 pm EDT.

Mark Eckel

Oklahoma State (-14) at Oregon State, 10:30 p.m. , FS1

How ‘bout them Cowboys.

No, not those Cowboys.

The Oklahoma State Cowboys turned what looked like an awful season in 2018 into a winning record and a Liberty Bowl win over Missouri.

This year with several players returning on both sides of the ball, the Cowboys should use that late season momentum to get off to a good start. And they face an opponent, even though it’s on the road, they should handle in heir opener.

Oklahoma State averaged 38 points per game in 2018 and has averaged 41 points per game since 2010. Oregon State allowed 45.7 points per game last season.

You see where we’re going with this, right?

Oklahoma State is going to score a lot of points Friday night in Corvallis. The ‘Boys will likely allow some as well, but not enough to worry about covering the 14-point spread.

Consider these little tidbits as well. Oklahoma State is 9-1 against the spread in its last 10 games, while Oregon State is 0-5 against the spread in its last five home games.

The Cowboys are probably a cut below Oklahoma and Texas in what should be a good Big 12 this fall. Oregon State, however, is just another bad Pac 12 team.

The Pick: Oklahoma State -14
