It's hard to back either of these teams with confidence given the losses to subpar teams. However, I think it's fair to say the Oklahoma State Cowboys are the better team in this matchup and will have the best player on the court. The Notre Dame Fighting Irish weren't competitive at all in their loss to Auburn, and it's now 3 straight games where the offense has been stuck in the mud. I'll take Oklahoma State and whatever the line is.
