Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy was asked this week about Oklahoma and what he expects to see from the Sooners this Saturday. The answer: plenty of blitzing.

“They’re going to blitz a lot; a lot of zone pressure is what they’ve done," Gundy said. "That’s what I expect them to do, a lot of blitzing. That’s what they like to do from what it looks like on tape. They still run the ball very well and make plays on defense. Offensively, obviously they’ve had a quarterback change, which has changed them somewhat. But they have two good running backs – guys that can make you miss and make plays.

"Broyles makes plays on the perimeter. It should be very interesting, special teams will be very important. We’ve got to be sound in special times and take care of plays there. We’ve got to take care of the football and eliminate big plays on defense, tackle in space; essentially it’s what the game comes down to. Our players and coaches are very excited and looking forward to the preparation this week.”
