Although it's early, it's hard not to think about an OSU-LSU BCS Championship game right now

November 8, 2011

STILLWATER — “Obviously, that's enough excitement for one night,” Oklahoma State Coach Mike Gundy said after Saturday night's game.
That was about as good a quote to describe Saturday night's Big 12 game at Boone Pickens Stadium, in which the OSU Cowboys outlasted the Kansas State Wildcats 52-45.
The win put OSU at 9-0 for the first time since the Oklahoma A&M days. More importantly, the Pokes are on a collision course with LSU for the BCS Championship Game Jan. 9, 2012, at the Louisiana Superdome in New Orleans.

Despite missing out on early scoring chances, Arkansas still downs South Carolina

November 8, 2011

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Has anyone ever noticed that a lot of times in football, if a team keeps its head up and keeps fighting that things have a way of evening out?
A classic example would be the South Carolina/Arkansas game Saturday night at Razorback Stadium. The Razorbacks missed on four scoring opportunities early in the game, but capitalized on some South Carolina miscues in the second half to come away with a 44-28 victory.
