OU won a 50-49 slugfest in Morgantown two years ago, and they’re expecting a rowdy crowd that will have a few choice words for the Sooners during the game. Nate Feken reports from Norman.

TMZ reported the injury was caused not by Peterson striking the child, but that the boy hit his head on […]

    Cowboys Quarterback Solid, Running Game Needs to Improve

    Oklahoma State has had two solid performances from Daxx Garman at quarterback, but it’s the running game that concerns the coaches the most. With J.W. Walsh out for several weeks or more with a foot injury, Garman made his first career start Saturday night in OSU’s 43-13 win over Texas-San Antonio, passing for 315 yards and 2 touchdowns. The Cowboys’ running game was not what the coaches want it to be, however. Dylan Buckingham reports from Stillwater.
