The most experienced part of the Oklahoma State defense is the secondary. And the best part of that Oklahoma State secondary you could validly argue is senior cornerback A.J. Green. So far this season, Green has one interception returned for a touchdown and 15 total tackles.

There is a dynamic cornerback pairing the Pokes have that is comparable to that of what Texas football had in the mix last season. Last year, Texas relied on the senior starting cornerback duo that was Kris Boyd and Davante Davis to try and lock down opposing wide receivers.

Oklahoma State has Green and redshirt junior Rodarius Williams to try and shut down the best of the opposing wide receivers. Green and Williams will be crucial to Oklahoma State’s efforts this year since the offense is moving at an even faster pace and the Big 12 is loaded at wide receiver once again.

Any time the Longhorns have to matchup with a cornerback that has six career interceptions and more than 15 career pass deflections, there could be an issue. Green stands at 6-foot-2 and 195 pounds and has a lot of length and leaping ability. He created problems for star Texas wide receiver Collin Johnson in the matchup between these two squads in 2018.
