Oklahoma State QB Out for the Rest of the Season



Announced on Thursday, Oklahoma State’s redshirt freshman quarterback, Spencer Sanders will miss the remainder of the season after having thumb surgery.

On Tuesday, WVU head coach Neal Brown spoke highly of Sanders’ play this season.

“He’s done a great job leading their offense,” Brown said. “I think they lead the entire country in explosive plays and he’s a big reason why. You’ve got to defend the entire field, he’s got great speed, a quick release, he can throw the deep ball.”

This season Sanders has led the Cowboys to a 7-3 record, completing 62.8% of passes for 2,065 yards and 16 touchdowns.

In his place, redshirt senior Dru Brown has been announced as the starter. Brown is a graduate transfer from Hawaii, where he started for two seasons. As a Rainbow Warrior in 2016 and 2017, Brown threw for 5,273 yards and 37 touchdowns. This season for the Cowboys, he has completed 13-of-18 passes for 223 yards and three scores.

Brown did not defeat a power-five opponent while at Hawaii, falling to California, Michigan and Arizona.

Kick-off for Saturday’s game is at noon from Mountaineers Field and the game will be broadcast on ESPN.
