GAME DAY: OSU Set For Tipoff Against Florida In Orange Bowl Classic
SUNRISE, Florida - Sunrise, Florida, will be the last place Oklahoma State prepares before Saturday night’s matchup with the Florida Gators in the Orange Bowl Classic.
OSU has this game and then a home contest with the University of Missouri-Kansas City to wrap up the non-conference schedule before Big 12 play begins.
Florida has three losses, and all of them are quality losses. Those losses include unbeaten Purdue, a rivalry game to Miami, who's a top 20 team, and, of course, No. 1 Michigan State.
The Gators feature fifth year senior Dorian Finney-Smith in the starting lineup. He’s a player that OSU is rather familiar with.
Finney-Smith began his career at Virginia Tech and played with the Hokies when they took on the Cowboys in the preseason NIT four years ago in Madison Square Garden.
Saturday night’s matchup will be the second of two games. Tipoff is scheduled for just after 7:00 p.m.
