So is there reason for concern in Cowboy camp headed into Friday&rsquo;s game at Louisiana.&#160; Sure.&#160; But unless Kendall Hunter and Brandon Weeden sleepwalk near the swamp Thursday night and get eaten by an alligator they should be okay.</P>Still, here are 3 things to worry about and what might put your mind at ease:</P>1.&#160; &#160;OSU lost at Troy on a Friday night in 2007.&#160; The similarities are theresame night of the week, same area of the country.&#160; I hear you.&#160; But that was Zac Robinson&rsquo;s first game as a starting QB and Troy was a talented, veteran, conference championship team led by a very good QB in Omar Haugabook.2.&#160; It&rsquo;s a horrible spot.&#160; The Cowboys are coming off of an emotional win over Texas A&amp;M.&#160; They head to Lubbock next week.&#160; OSU hasn&rsquo;t won there since 1941, but the Red Raiders are reeling at 0-2 in conference play with a new head coach.&#160; This is as good a time as any to snap that losing streak.&#160; But this is a team full of youngsters who don&rsquo;t know and better than to focus on the next game and the veterans who remain from the Troy nightmare of &rsquo;07 can present a wakeup call for the kids.3.&#160; The Ragin&rsquo; Cajuns have done this before.&#160; Kansas State limped into Lafayette last season and absorbed a 17-15 loss.&#160; But the Wildcats were still trying to figure things out with the return of Bill Snyder as head coach and they had no quarterback after Josh Freeman left early for the NFL.My prediction:&#160; OSU 45&#160; Louisiana 20<BR/>
