The FPI Is Predicting Oklahoma State Will Have A Really Disappointing Season

ESPN's Football Power Index is not high on the Cowboys.

Oklahoma State is a preseason top 10 team.

The Cowboys are ranked No. 6 in ESPN's latest top 25 poll, which comes following the spring football season.

"With quarterback Mason Rudolph and wide receiver James Washington deciding to return for their senior seasons, the Cowboys already looked primed to challenge rival Oklahoma for a Big 12 title. Then the Pokes added two graduate transfers -- Clemson cornerback Adrian Baker and Cal left tackle Aaron Cochran -- who might be able to help right away. Much of the buzz this spring focused on former LSU receiver Tyron Johnson, who sat out last season under NCAA transfer rules, and now appears ready to be another weapon," ESPN writes.

The Football Power Index is much less high on Mike Gundy's team.

The FPI's win-loss projection for Oklahoma State is currently: 7.7-4.5. It gives Oklahoma State just a 4.2 percent chance to win the Big 12, trailing Oklahoma, TCU and Texas. Mike Gundy's team has a 0.1 percent chance of going undefeated.

Who's going to end up being right - the FPI or ESPN's preseason top 25?
