It's getting closer to kickoff as Oklahoma State and Texas A&M face off for the Texas Bowl. NRG Stadium has sold at least 65,000 tickets for the game. 

The Aggies will be a heavy favorite with the crowd as College Station is nearby, but the Cowboys hope for 10,000 to 15,000 supporters.

We'll see how the Cowboy defense adjusts to A&M. A&M has a good offense even though they have five losses. They have a dual-threat quarterback in Kellen Mond. They only have one scholarship running back on the roster thanks to injuries and a suspension or two.

The Cowboys will be without their two starting safeties. Kolby Harvell-Peel is out with a knee injury. Tre Sterling will sit out the first half after the targeting ejection in Bedlam.

Now, can A&M slow down the Cowboys offense in Chuba Hubbard who said he's feeling well rested and ready to play. Hubbard needs just 64 rushing yards to reach 2000 for the season. He said he hasn't really thought about it, and he hasn't made up his mind yet about whether to enter the NFL draft or return to Stillwater for another year.
