Is there any combination of skill position players in the nation that are better than what Oklahoma State has between Hubbard and junior star wide receiver Tylan Wallace? That answer might be no with how these two showed out thus far. Wallace had yet another huge outing in the win over Tulsa last week.
Through three games, Wallace has 390 receiving yards and six touchdowns. He’s averaging an incredible 26.0 yards per catch. A lot of the reason behind that was a 90-yard touchdown catch where he made a Tulsa cornerback look puny. Gleeson continues to look at deep shots to Wallace this fall.
Oklahoma State is sure to target Wallace a lot this weekend as the young Texas cornerbacks have a large challenge to overcome. Orlando is likely to put sophomore corner Jalen Green on the mighty task that is covering Wallace. But that is the best way to try and limit him, along with safety help over the top.
Last season, Wallace had one of the iconic moments in the Big 12 when he leaped over Boyd to nab a touchdown right before halftime. Boyd mistimed the jump and it potentially cost the Longhorns the chance at winning the game when it was all said and done. But he could be a major concern once again for the Texas pass defense.
