Can Mike Gundy, Oklahoma State football win 5th straight at West Virginia?

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — Two teams at very different emotional points in their seasons will meet at Milan Puskar Stadium.

Oklahoma State comes to town riding an unexpected two-game winning streak, while West Virginia had its hot start halted by Houston’s Hail Mary last week.

Set for a 2:30 p.m. kickoff on Saturday, televised by ESPN, the Cowboys (4-2) and Mountaineers (4-2) are looking to separate themselves in the Big 12 standings, where they’re tied at 2-1.

Here’s a look at the game in this week’s edition of Four Downs:

Cowboy in the Crosshairs

Offensive tackle Jake Springfield: OSU coach Mike Gundy didn’t provide details on starting left tackle Dalton Cooper’s injury that kept him out for most of the Kansas game. It’s unclear if he’ll be back in his usual role at West Virginia.

If he can’t play, Jake Springfield will step in at left tackle after filling in for Cooper last week. If Cooper returns, Springfield goes back to his usual right tackle spot. Regardless, Springfield’s role will be critical.

West Virginia has a solid run defense, giving up only 119.0 yards per game, and has recorded 14 sacks through six games this season.
