TCU vs. Oklahoma State: Wes Lunt splitting snaps in practice

Christian Petersen

With J.W. Walsh on the shelf, the Cowboys' two other QBs have been splitting snaps in preparation for their game with TCU on Saturday.

With Brandon Weeden now playing for the Cleveland Browns, Oklahoma State can't get any luck at the QB position in 2012.

Wes Lunt, a true freshman QB, won the job out of camp, but he went down with knee and ankle injuries in their third game against UL-Lafayette.

J.W. Walsh, a redshirt freshman from Denton, took over for Lunt, but he suffered a season-ending knee injury in their victory over Iowa State last week.

With Walsh out, most people assumed that Lunt would resume control of the Cowboys offense, but Mike Gundy is apparently hedging his bets in the run up to their game with TCU on Saturday. Lunt is splitting snaps with Clint Chelf, a junior, in practice this week.

However, regardless of whoever lines up under center, the Oklahoma State coaching staff is confident that they'll be able to perform (courtesy of Newson6.com):

"I'm confident we can win with either," offensive coordinator Todd Monken said. "We've got a good enough system and good enough players."

And if you look at the statistics Lunt and Walsh have put up this year, you can see Monken's point.

Walsh completed 66.2% of his passes for 1,467 yards, 10 TD's and 3 INT's. Lunt completed 68% of his passes for 588 yards, 4 TD's and 3 INT's.
