OSU gets tougher foe

Pokes teavel to Arizona

 STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) -- The degree of difficulty on Oklahoma State's schedule is about to get a whole lot tougher.

After walloping Savannah State 84-0 to open the season on Saturday night, the 19th-ranked Cowboys are gearing up this week for their first road game of the season and an early test against Arizona (1-0).

Oklahoma State (1-0) has rolled to easy wins against the Wildcats each of the past two years, winning the 2010 Alamo Bowl 36-10 before recording a 37-14 victory last season in Stillwater. There are plenty of changes for this year's game, though.

Freshman starting quarterback Wes Lunt will be playing in his first college road game for Oklahoma State, and it will be against a different Arizona team in its first season under Rich Rodriguez.
