Oklahoma State confident that Mason Rudolph will play in bowl game

After the Baylor Bears lost to the Texas Longhorns in an upset on Saturday, the Oklahoma State Cowboys will likely get into a New Year’s Six bowl game due to tiebreakers in the Big 12. The Cowboys will likely find themselves in the Sugar Bowl against Ole Miss now.

The Cowboys were pretty concerned about the health of quarterback Mason Rudolph who has been dealing with a right foot injury against Baylor. However, head coach Mike Gundy told the Tulsa World that the team is hoping to have him back at the game.

“I’m confident (that Rudolph will start in the bowl game). I feel pretty good about it,” Gundy told the Tulsa World. “He doesn’t have as severe an injury as a lot of guys (who have comparable injuries).

“I think he’ll be practicing in two weeks. He’ll have to (focus on) conditioning over the next 10 days. One thing is, he doesn’t have to have a lot of conditioning at the position he’s playing.”

Rudolph has split time with J.W. Walsh this year, but has seen time in every game. He has thrown for 3,591 yards and 21 touchdowns against just nine interceptions.
