The Oklahoma State Cowboys enter this game with a 10-2 record and with the taste in their mouths that they could have made it to the College Football Playoffs. However despite missing that opportunity, the Cowboys are happy they get to play for the prestigious Sugar Bowl. The offensive unit of Oklahoma State has been great all year and their both losses came from facing the Baylor Bears and the Oklahoma Sooners. The Cowboys will try to establish their offense from early on, and try to find a way to control Laquon Treadwell and the rest of Ole Miss offense.
Treadwell will be the player that is expected to be the difference maker. With an NFL contract very likely coming his way in 2016, Treadwell will want to finish his college career with a Sugar Bowl tittle under his belt. He has been proving to be better week in and week out and, if he had stayed healthy he would have had back-to-back 1000 receiving yards. In the Sugar Bowl, Treadwell will be the one player that could define the game’s ending. If he is able to get away from Oklahoma State’s secondary, this will be a long game for the Cowboys. If the Rebels are going to win, they will need to be able to keep the Cowboys from scoring and provide their offense some breathing room to put numbers on the board. One thing is for sure, this game will definitely cover the spread on top online sports betting sites.
The result of the game will come down to which defense is able to hold their own the most. This game will see both offenses trying to out do each other, lead changes and close calls. This could be a close game if Oklahoma State is able to keep up with Treadwell. But in the end, if you are placing your wager on your favorite top online sports betting sites, put you money on the Rebels. Final score 38-35.
