LOUIS -- St. STILLWATER, Oka. -- To maintain a clear path to the Big 12 Championship, No. 17 Oklahoma State needs to overcome the nations most potent aerial attack and Texas Tech quarterback Patrick Mahomes.For Oklahoma State (7-2, 5-1 Big 12, No. 13 CFP), two more wins will set up a showdown with intrastate rival No. 9 Oklahoma on Dec. 3 for the Big 12 title. But getting past Mahomes and Texas Tech (4-5, 2-4 Big 12) on Saturday will be a challenge.Tech ranks second in the nation in total offense (587.1 yards per game) and fourth in scoring, averaging 46.2 points. Mahomes tops the country with 3,886 passing yards and third with 31 touchdown tosses.Mahomes is an outstanding player with outstanding targets, and its kind of hard to get a grasp on them, said Cowboys defensive coordinator Glenn Spencer. They have concepts, but then their biggest plays come off of when he scrambles around and creates a different play from it. So we have to be very disciplined and stay with the receivers a long time.Hes a great talent and hes going to be a tough task for us.The Red Raiders, looking to recover from a 45-37 loss to Texas last week, know they face a tough task against Oklahoma State, which it has not beaten since 2008.Its a team that continues to find a way to win at the end, said Texas Tech coach Kliff Kingsbury of OSU. Theyve had some really good comebacks. Theyre offensively tremendous skill players. The young running back (freshman Justice Hill) is doing a great job, (receiver James) Washingtons as good as anybody in the country, and the quarterback (Mason Rudolph) is throwing it really well. Defensively, they tend to make plays when they have to.Some things to watch on Saturday:1. MAHOMES ROLLING: Mahomes has been busy piling up ridiculous numbers, highlighted by his performance Oct. 22 against Oklahoma, when he completed 52 of 88 passes, tying the NCAA record with 734 yards and amassing five touchdowns. He has been sacked seven times the last two games, but still completed 61 percent of his passes. I think hes a potential first-round pick, said Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy. He reminds me a lot of Dak Prrescott, when we played Dak at Mississippi State. Custom Jerseys Sale. Weve got a great challenge.2. TURNOVER FACTORY: While the Cowboys defense ranks 98th (out of 128 FBS schools) in total defense, allowing 443.8 yards per contest, they generate a lot of turnovers. Safety Jordan Sterns interception in the end zone on the final play of last weeks 43-37 win over Kansas State was OSUs 11th of the season, leading the Big 12 and tied for 22nd in the nation. Overall, the Cowboys have forced 20 turnovers, most in the Big 12 and ninth in the country, with at least one turnover in every game and 10 in the last four.3. FLAGS PICKED UP: Through the first seven games of the season, Texas Tech was one of the most penalized teams in the Big 12, averaging 9.9 penalties and 85 yards per game. However, the last two games have seen a marked turnaround. The Red Raiders total of just five penalties for 19 combined yards in the last two weeks, including just one flag for 5 yards in their win over TCU Oct. 29, was the lowest in the nation.4. RUDOLPH SHINING BRIGHT: OSU quarterback Mason Rudolph has put together an outstanding season. After completing 29 of 38 passes for 457 yards and five touchdowns last week against Kansas State, Rudolph ranks seventh in the nation with 2,989 yards. His streak of 163 pass attempts without an interception ended in that game, tossing just four picks overall, with 22 touchdowns. He can throw the deep ball, ranking third in the nation with 26 completions of 30 or more yards, including seven of 50-plus.5. RUN DOWN: With thriving passing attacks, both teams have endured struggles running the ball. Oklahoma State ranks 101st in the nation with an average of 141.2 yards rushing per game, while Texas Tech is 124th at 101.3. Freshman Justice Hill leads the Cowboys with 663 yards rushing, with four touchdowns. Demarcus Felton tops the Red Raiders with 289 yards on the ground, with three touchdowns.

Shooting will have a different look at the Rio Olympics this summer. Air Jordan 1 Clearance .The International Shooting Sport Federation altered the finals format for Olympic events, starting all finalists at zero -- qualification scores had previously carried over -- with eliminations that culminate in a final duel for the gold medal.The ISSF made the changes in an effort to make the sport more appealing to younger generations and make it more fan friendly. The rules were put in place in 2013 and should make things extra interesting in Rio.A few more things to look for from the shooting events at the Rio Games:---THE RUNDOWN: Shooting at the Rio Olympics will include 15 events, nine mens and six womens. Competition is Aug. 6-14 at the Olympic Shooting Centre in Deodoro Olympic Park, which will also be the site of rugby, equestrian, BMX and mountain bike racing, pentathlon and kayaking.RHODES RIDE: Swimmer Michael Phelps is the most decorated American Olympian with 22 medals. Kim Rhode has a chance to do something not even Phelps has accomplished. Should the 36-year-old skeet shooter earn a medal in Rio, she will become the first U.S. Olympian to earn medals in six straight Olympics. A string of health issues put Rhode in danger of missing the Rio Games, but came through when she needed to, earning the team nomination at the U.S. Olympic Trials in Arkansas in May. Rhode is the first American woman in an individual sport to earn medals in five straight Olympics, winning her first three in double trap and her last two in skeet.FAMILY AFFAIR: Shooting at the Olympics is nothing new to Georgian Nino Salukvadze; the Rio Games will be her eighth. This one will be extra special with her 18-year-old son there with her. Tsotne Machavariani shot a personal best in 10-meter air pistol at the European championships in February to earn a surprise Olympic spot, creating what is believed to be the first mother-son duo to compete in the same Olympics. Salukvadze won gold at the 1988 Seoul Olympics in 25-meter pistol and became a celebrity at the 2008 Beijing Games when she kissed a Russian shooter on the podium at a time when Georgia and Russia were at war.OLYMPIAN EFFORT: Jay Shi was 9 when he was working on a class project with scissors and stabbed himself in the eye. Doctors were able to restore his vision after the family moved from Beijing to the United States, but far from perfectly. Unable to see three dimensionally or judge distances well, Shi was forced to shoot cross-eyed -- gun in his right hand, left eye aiming down the site -- after taking up the sport about a decade ago. He failed to qualify for the Olympics in his home country in 2008 and the 2012 London Games as he tried to find a method that worked. Shi finally broke through this season, dominating the Olympic Trials in free pistol.CHASING CHINA: China will be the favorite in Rio after dominating the past two Games. The Chinese won five golds and seven overall medals at Beijing in 2008 and had the most medals at London with two golds and five overall. Guo Wenjun will be looking for a three-peat after becoming the first woman to repeat in womens 10-meter air pistol four years ago and Yi Siling will defend the 10-meter womens air rifle title.EYE ON EMMONS: Matt Emmons has seen his share of ups and downs during his career. He won gold in 50-meter prone rifle at the 2004 Athens Games using a borrowed rifle after his was apparently sabotaged in the locker room. He missed on a chance for double gold when he shot at the wrong target in three-position rifle. Emmons had another three-position mishap at the 2008 Beijing Games when, while comfortably leading, he accidentally hit the trigger and barely hit the ring on his final shot, dropping him to fourth. Emmons took silver in prone in Beijing and was the three-position bronze medalist at London in 2012.DIAMOND OUT: Australian Michael Diamond, one of the most decorated shooters in Olympic history, will not compete in Rio after being arrested in May on DUI and firearms charges. The two-time gold medalist in trap pleaded not guilty and his attorney asked the court to expedite his case so it could finish before the July 4 Olympic selection cutoff. Diamond met with the Australian Olympic Committees executive board in late June to plead his case, but Shooting Australia opted to not nominate him for Rio, a decision the AOC supported. Diamond has competed in six Olympics, winning gold in 1996 and 2000.
