OSU ready to face Coker, Texas-San Antonio


No. 13 Oklahoma State vs. Texas-San Antonio

Time: 11 a.m.

TV: Fox Sports 1.

Radio: KEOK, FM-102.1.

Records: OSU 1-0; UT-San Antonio 1-0.

Line: Oklahoma State by 26.

Series record: First meeting.

At stake: After defeating Mississippi State 21-3 last week in Houston, Oklahoma State plays its fourth consecutive game in the state of Texas, with victories in the prior three. The upstart UTSA program, in just its second FBS season, is coming off an inspiring comeback win at New Mexico last week, 21-13.

Key matchup: Oklahoma State’s defense, which allowed just a first quarter 40-yard field goal against Mississippi State, up against Texas-San Antonio’s offense, which gained 394 yards in its opener in New Mexico. OSU linebacker Caleb Lavey is the reigning Big 12 Defensive Player of the Week, while UTSA QB Eric Soza threw for 237 yards and two touchdowns, utilizing 11 different receivers.

Notes: UTSA coach Larry Coker spent seven seasons as Oklahoma State’s offensive coordinator from 1983-89, including the four years that current OSU coach Mike Gundy played there. This is the first meeting between the two coaches... Oklahoma State RB Jeremy Smith, who gained 102 yards on 15 carries last week, has scored a rushing touchdown in 10 consecutive games.
