The Oklahoman’s Scott Wright: Oklahoma State football: Can Texas Tech hold off the Cowboys’ daunting defensive front?

Left tackle Caleb Etienne: Texas Tech likes to get creative in its attack on the opposing quarterback, and Etienne — despite holding down a key position on the line — is the Cowboys’ least experienced blocker. He will see things from Tech defensive end Tyree Wilson and others that he’s never seen before.

Safety Jason Taylor II: The redshirt senior from Carl Albert High School is the Cowboys’ active interception leader, and Texas Tech has thrown nine picks already this season. Taylor’s knack for being around the ball in big moments showed up again last week with his late-game interception that sealed the win at Baylor.

Linebacker Xavier Benson: Once a Texas Tech starter, Benson spent three seasons as a Red Raider. He redshirted in 2018, started 10 games in 2019, then opted out of the 2020 season because of COVID-19 concerns before transferring to Tyler (Texas) Junior College. He led the Cowboys with 10 tackles last week, but his most important role on Saturday will come in pass coverage, where he has been working to find his footing.

First Down: Matchup that Matters
OSU defensive end Tyler Lacy vs. Tech left tackle Caleb Rogers: The Red Raiders have allowed 18 sacks this season, among the worst in the country, and the majority of those have come from the offensive line’s left side. While Lacy will line up in a variety of positions, he’s most frequently setting up opposite either the left guard or left tackle, so Rogers will have the challenge of blocking the Cowboys’ most impactful defensive player, while also getting a look at faster edge rushers like Brock Martin, Collin Oliver and Trace Ford.
