STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) -- A pair of injuries up front are testing the newfound depth on the offensive line for No. 6 Oklahoma State.

The Cowboys (5-0, 2-0 Big 12) have been able to absorb the loss of guard Jonathan Rush to a season-ending knee injury and center Grant Garner to a leg injury while still scoring at the highest rate in the country.

Coach Mike Gundy says he expects Garner, the starting center, to return for Saturday's game at No. 22 Texas. Gundy says he used to be concerned about losing even one lineman, but now Oklahoma State has been able to build up enough depth that losing a couple players hasn't been a big problem.
