STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) _ Oklahoma State quarterback Zac Robinson's home was a house divided when he was a kid.

The OSU cheering section was downstairs, where his mother and two sisters would watch the game on television. Robinson, his father and his brother would stay upstairs and root for the Sooners.

The family dynamic is a bit different now, as Robinson prepares to start against 10th-ranked OU (9-2, 5-2 Big 12) for the first time Saturday. Robinson envisioned himself playing on Owen Field, but that all changed when it was time to pick a college to attend.

Robinson played in last year's Bedlam game when the Cowboys used an empty backfield, and he took over as OSU's starting quarterback early this season.

He's already broken the school's season record for total offense, with 3,122 yards, and he ranks third on the charts for passing and rushing in a season by a quarterback at OSU (6-5, 4-3).

On Saturday, he still expects some division among his family members, but says he sees even the OU faithful in his family starting to wear orange.
