Oklahoma State releases depth chart for opener

With the start of the 2015 football season just around the corner, reigning Cactus Bowl champions Oklahoma State have announced the starters and back-ups for their season opener against the Central Michigan Chippewas.

At 6-foot-4, 217 pounds, Mason Rudolph will be Oklahoma State’s go-to signal caller with junior running back Chris Carson serving as the backbone in Mike Gundy’s offense.

Despite a five-game losing streak nearing the end of the season, the Cowboys regathered around their playbook and climbed out victors of the Cactus Bowl over the PAC-12’s Washington Huskies with a final score of 30-22.
