Oklahoma State's quarterback situation has been ripe with unrest this season. Nonetheless, the Cowboys are on a roll when they travel to Norman, Okla., for Bedlam against Oklahoma on Saturday. OSU has scored 50 points in back-to-back games and boasts double-digit wins over West Virginia, TCU, Iowa State and Texas Tech -- all while playing three quarterbacks. Last week, the Pokes dominated the Red Raiders with a 59-21 victory. SoonerNation reviewed the game and came away with three keys to watch during Bedlam.

While there has been plenty of attention on the Cowboys quarterbacks and their success, running back Joseph Randle's excellence has been the foundation of the offense. The junior running back brings versatility, toughness and big-play ability to the table. He’s not Tavon Austin, but he presents problems of his own.
