Less than a week removed from the College Football Playoff National Championship and another title for Alabama on Monday, the focus has already shifted toward the 2021 season. Early betting odds were released shortly after the Crimson Tide defeated Ohio State at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami — and that includes Oklahoma State’s chances at brining a title back to Stillwater.
According to odds released by William Hill Sportsbook, Oklahoma State has 60-1 odds to claim next season’s College Football Playoff National Championship. Believe it or not, those are the same odds the Cowboys had in April to win this past national title.
Oklahoma State has the fourth-best odds of teams in the Big 12, with Oklahoma sitting at 15-2, Iowa State at 22-1 and Texas at 25-1. Alabama is the betting odds favorite to repeat as national champions with 3-1 odds, followed by Clemson at 4-1. Ohio State, this year’s runner-up, joins the Sooners with 15-2 odds.

There was a lot of talk and build up ahead of the 2020 season for Oklahoma State with lofty expectations set on winning a Big 12 Championship and perhaps an outside shot at the College Football Playoff, however the Cowboys fell short, finishing fourth in the conference standings with an 8-3 overall record and 6-3 mark in league play.
Although Oklahoma State loses numerous key contributors like Tylan Wallace, Chuba Hubbard, Rodarius Williams, Amen Ogbongbemiga and Kolby Harvell-Peel to the NFL Draft, the Pokes are set to return more than a dozen starters. Notable returners include quarterback Spencer Sanders, who improved as the season progressed, linebacker Malcolm Rodriguez, offensive lineman Josh Sills, safety Tre Sterling and more. Head coach Mike Gundy is preparing for his 17th season in Stillwater and has led the Cowboys to 16-consecutive winning seasons.
Oklahoma State’s 2021 schedule includes a non-conference matchup at Boise State, with home games against Tulsa and FCS member Missouri State. For the Big 12 schedule, the Cowboys will travel to Iowa State, Texas, Texas Tech and West Virginia, while hosting Baylor, Kansas, Kansas State, Oklahoma and TCU.
