Here's an odd scenario for you...

When Iowa State and Oklahoma State meet up this Saturday at 11:00 a.m. (on Fox Sports Net), there is a very real possibility that fans in attendance won't know either starting quarterback until game time. 

After Iowa State's 71-7 loss to Baylor on Saturday night, Cyclone head coach Paul Rhoads hinted at a quarterback competition between Sam Richardson and Grant Rohach to the Ames Tribune.  

On Sunday night, Oklahoma State beat writer (for The Oklahoman) Gina Mizell tweeted the following:

After Oklahoma State's 24-10 win over TCU on Saturday, one would think that senior Clint Chelf would be the clubhouse leader to earn the start against the Cyclones. In relief of J.W. Walsh, Chelf threw for 178 yards in rout to the victory. But was hardly dynamic, completing only 10-of-25 passes while throwing a pick along the way. Walsh himself threw two first half interceptions and got yanked by Gundy, who said afterwards that his team needed a "spark."

Here's the scenario for Oklahoma State week:

The Cyclones are searching for a quarterback. The Cowboys are searching for a quarterback.

The whole world is searching for a quarterback!
