OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - With their primary goal of a Big 12
Conference football title now out of reach, Oklahoma State players
now are trying to regroup.
OSU's 56-20 loss at No. 2 Texas Tech last night knocked the
Cowboys out of contention for the conference title. OSU could
conceivably share the Big 12 South title but would lose tiebreakers
to represent the division in the conference championship game.
OSU is now 8-2 overall and 4-2 in Big 12 play heading into this
Saturday's game against Colorado. A strong finish in the Cowboys'
final two games, including a home date against Oklahoma, could land
OSU a berth in a prestigious bowl, perhaps the Cotton or Holiday.
OSU last played in the Cotton Bowl in Dallas following the 2003
season and hasn't appeared in the Holiday Bowl in San Diego since
Holiday Bowl selection committee member Eric Graves attended the
Cowboys' home game against Iowa State on Nov. 1. He says that bowl
would like to have OSU, depending on how the rest of the season
goes for the Cowboys.
