After a five-year absence, the #12 Oklahoma State Cowboys are back in the Alamo Bowl to face the #10 Colorado Buffaloes in a matchup of former Big 12 opponents. Colorado leads the all-time series at 26-19-1, and should be highly motivated after a perceived Rose Bowl snub. The Cowboys roster is stacked with Texans, including three players originally from San Antonio. Brackenridge High School standout Ramon Richards exudes confidence at the cornerback position for Oklahoma State and has emerged as one of the most engaging personalities in college football. With the winner expected to close out the season with a top 10 ranking, a competitive contest is in the cards for San Antonio’s annual holiday football classic.
