OSU football: A.J. Green has one final chance to shine in Texas Bowl
STILLWATER — Oklahoma State defensive coordinator Jim Knowles wants three interceptions from A.J. Green to cap off his career.
That’s not too much to ask, right?
“I just want to see him go out there and play the best game that he’s ever played,” Knowles said.
With the Cowboys playing Texas A&M in the Texas Bowl next Friday at Houston’s NRG Stadium, several players will suit up for the final time. They’ll look to make one final splash.

Green, a senior defensive back, is no different.
He’s set to play in the Senior Bowl, but he has one more chance to really make his presence felt on a big stage.
Green is regarded as the Cowboys’ best cornerback. This season, he had 48 tackles, an interception he returned for a touchdown and five pass breakups while primarily defending opponents’ top receiver. Green was a second-team selection on the Associated Press’ All-Big 12 team and honorable mention on the coaches’ team.
“He allows me to do a lot of things with the other 10 (defenders) because I know I can count on him,” Knowles said. “So in that way, maybe he hasn't received the glamour.
“But he's a pro prospect and he's going to continue to get his chance.”
