NORMAN â€” In our state song, one lyric says, â€ś... where the wind comes sweeping down the plain.â€ť Those words were no truer than Saturday afternoon at Owen Field when the Oklahoma Sooners entertained the Baylor Bears in Big 12 action. If I didn't see a football field and players â€” and known I was indeed at Owen Field â€” I possibly would have thought myself to be at a place like Wrigley Field or Candlestick Park because it was so windy. Heck, some of the OU pom-pom girls had their pom-poms blow out of their hands!
STILLWATER â€” The Oklahoma State Cowboys took down a struggling West Virginia team by a score of 55-34 Saturday afternoon at Boone Pickens Stadium.
Enid's Clint Chelf showed good poise and command of the OSU offense, going 22-for-31 for 292 yards and four touchdowns.Â Receiver Josh Stewart had a big game, catching 13 passes for 172 yards and two TDs and rushing for another.
â€śWe had a good game,â€ť said Mike Gundy, OSU's coach. â€śI think the biggest area of improvement for us is our coverage. Our guys really stepped up and made some good plays.â€ť
Alabama was knocked out of the ranks of the undefeated Saturday by Texas A&M, and now all the fans of the Big 12 are praying that at least two of the three undefeated teams â€” Kansas State, Oregon and Notre Dame â€” will run the tables. It is time for a Bowl Championship Series national champion that is not from the SEC.
A&M screwed up big time. If the Aggies would have stayed in the Big 12, they more than likely would be undefeated and have a chance to play for the national championship.
