(Stillwater-AP) -- Oklahoma State has the chance to play spoiler when the Cowboys host Texas A-and-M tomorrow.

At 2 - 5, O-S-U must win out to avoid a losing season, and are taking on an Aggie team that's six-and-two and ranked 24th in the latest Associated Press poll.

Coach Bob Simmons says this Texas A-and-M team is different from those of the past, the Aggies are now a threat to throw the ball.

Quarterback Mark Farris has completed 61 percent of his passes this season to rank second in the Big 12 behind Oklahoma's Josh Heupel.

A-and-M is also in the thick of the Big 12 South race with a 4-and-1 conference record.

The Aggies are tied with Texas, trailing the 4-and-0 Sooners.
