Series Record: Oklahoma State leads 5-3.

WHAT’S AT STAKE

Oklahoma State gets its first real test _ first real game? _ of the season after pulling its starters before the end of the first quarter in an 84-0 annihilation of Savannah State. Arizona also will face a step up in competition after needing overtime to beat Toledo in its opener, a fast-paced game that featured 182 combined plays.

KEY MATCHUP

Oklahoma State QB Wes Lunt against Arizona’s defense. The Cowboys’ freshman starter didn’t get much of an initial test against Savannah State, completing all 11 of his passes while facing almost no resistance in four offensive series. The Wildcats don’t have a lot of defensive depth, but they’ll give Lunt a lot more to think about than Savannah State in his first start against an FBS opponent.

PLAYERS TO WATCH

Oklahoma State: RB Joseph Randle. Randle has had some success against Arizona the past two seasons, rushing for 123 yards and catching 11 passes for 127 yards. He had 107 yards and a pair of touchdowns on just six carries last week against Savannah State.

Arizona: QB Matt Scott. The fifth-year senior looked sharp after two years of waiting behind Nick Foles, throwing for a career-high 387 yards and two TDs while rushing for 74 more yards. His 461 yards of offense were the third-most in school history.
