As week 3 comes to an end, the Oklahoma State Cowboys and Oklahoma Sooners are two teams you don’t wanna mess with in the Big 12. Unfortunately, both team will be missing some key players for the rest of the season. Starting center Ben Habern suffered a broken radius bone and is expected to have surgery and miss the rest of the year. The Cowboys lost starting right guard Jonathan Rush for the season with a right knee injury, and cornerback David Hedgepeth will miss the remainder of the season with a raptured Achilles tendon. These injuries will especially effect the Cowboys due to the lack of depth at both positions. Regardless of the injuries, both teams are on a roll and only are only getting better. Quarterback Brandon Weeden and the Cowboys showed what playing four quarters of football is all about. The Cowboys were faced with some adversity in the first half, but came out firing on all cylinders in the second half. It was a big win, especially for linebackers coach Glenn Spencer. Spencer who’s wife passed away during the Tulsa game last week was in tears after the game. You bet that had something to do with the Cowboys performance in the second half. Next week the pokes have a bye, while the Sooners host Ball State.
