QB Cornelius prepares for 1st start for Oklahoma State

STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) — Oklahoma State’s Taylor Cornelius is inching closer to his first start as quarterback next Thursday against Missouri State.

Cornelius replaces Mason Rudolph, the longtime starter who now is with the Pittsburgh Steelers. He held off Dru Brown and Spencer Sanders to earn the job.

Cornelius, a redshirt senior who has never started at Oklahoma State, has completed 15 of 24 passes for 220 yards and has rushed for 108 yards on 17 carries in his career.

Brown, a graduate transfer from Hawaii, is the No. 2 quarterback. Sanders, a freshman, will be No. 3.
