Garret Rangel leaves for Oklahoma State football at Kansas with QB Spencer Sanders out


Oklahoma State Quarterback spencer sander is not expected to play for the Cowboys in Saturday’s game at Kansas, according to Cowboy Radio Network play-by-play broadcaster Dave Hunziker. Garret Rangel is in for the Cowboys, Chris Hummer reported. As Hummer noted, OSU is “very high on “Rangel, a four-star rookie from Frisco (Texas) Lone Star. Rangel was 247Sports Composite’s No. 420 overall industry-generated prospect, No. 26 quarterback and No. 60 player in Texas. for the class of 2022.

Sanders threw for 2,117 yards this season, adding 15 passing touchdowns and five interceptions. He rushed for 343 yards and eight scores on 87 carries. Despite the injury, Sanders is having the best season of his four-year career at Oklahoma State. In addition to his impressive numbers, the Cowboys were problematic for their enemies, racing to a 6-2 (3-2 Big 12).

At Monday’s match week press conference, mike gundy explained that his comfort level is different if Sanders isn’t under center – but the playbook remains the same.

“I think it would be unfair for me to stand here and say that my comfort level with either of the two quarterbacks we would use would be the same with (Sanders) because it’s not.” said Gundy, via GoPokes247. “They’re inexperienced, they’re learning on the job. I’ve seen them execute scrums, I’ve seen them do things inside (training center), but it’s different when everything, when the lights are on and We all know that. It’s just athletics. So we’re learning a little bit on the job. Do I think we can work? Of course we can. Do I think that we operate like we do with Spencer? No, because of his 40 games of experience and being in those situations.”

Against K-State, Sanders finished 13 for 26 with 147 yards and one interception. It was an ugly outing for the Cowboys in all three phases of the game, going down 48-0 and mustering just 217 total rushing yards, its lowest single-game mark since 2014. After the loss, Gundy admitted to members of the media that he should have removed Sanders from the game due to the lopsided scoreline, but added that Sanders’ desire to compete made it a difficult decision to make.

“They’ve earned the right to do it,” Gundy said of letting veterans stay and compete. “We took him out because of what you said. I guess you might be asking me, could it have been 10 minutes earlier? I mean, we could have. But he’s different with that. And his behavior, and the way he’s handled himself has been fabulous. So I didn’t want to start a storm that didn’t need to be started. I had a pretty big storm going on and I didn’t want to start one with him.
