    Cowboys Survive Upset Bid by Jayhawks

    Oklahoma State’s football team has won five in a row, but they barely got there after escaping an upset bid by struggling Kansas on Saturday in Lawrence.

OSU head coach Mike Gundy wasn’t happy with how his team played or how quarterback Daxx Garman played specifically.

OSU’s second possession featured a 24-yard pass from Daxx Garman to David Glidden, which set up a 43-yard field goal by Ben Grogan to go up 3-0. Kansas answered by going 75 […]

    Sooners Survive Longhorn Scare, 31-26
