After an eventful week at Oklahoma State off the field, the No. 12 Cowboys look to put aside any distractions and take care of football business.

Facing what some would call an inferior opponent in its home opener on Saturday against Lamar (1-1), the Cowboys (2-1) have to guard against a letdown.

But quarterback J.W. Walsh says that won't be an issue, noting, "You got to prepare each week like the opponent's the same. That's what we did last week, and I think that's what we're going to do this week."

A recent report by Sports Illustrated described a decade of alleged misconduct in the Oklahoma State football program dating to 2001 under coaches Les Miles and Mike Gundy.

Oklahoma State said it has notified the NCAA about the allegations and launched its own investigation.
