Oklahoma State will have to try and win vs. Iowa State without veteran quarterback Spencer Sanders, who is going to miss the game due to a lingering injury, according to Action Network’s Brett McMurphy.
The tweet came from McMurphy on Saturday afternoon just a couple of hours prior to kick off.
Last week, Sanders was also out and Oklahoma State started freshman Garret Rangel against Kansas and he started off poorly, with a couple of interceptions, but settled down as the game progressed to finish 27/40 for 304 yards, with two touchdowns to three interceptions.
It has also since been reported that Gunnar Gundy will get the start.
Gunnar Gundy played two weeks ago in relief of Sanders against Kansas State, finishing 2 of 7 for 16 yards with one interception, while he rushed five times for 27 yards. In a blowout of Arkansas Pine-Bluff early in the season, Gundy got his most playing time, going 12 of 20 for 128 yards with two touchdown passes, while rushing for 42 yards.
Oklahoma State has been struggling in recent weeks, losing two in a row and three of their last four games. The Pokes fell to Kansas 37-16 last week, 48-0 to Kansas State the week prior, and then 43-40 to TCU earlier in October.
