STILLWATER â€” Saturday afternoon's game at Boone Pickens Stadium had the phrase â€śtrap gameâ€ť written all over it. The weekend before, the Oklahoma State Cowboys won a big road Big 12 game against Texas Tech. This upcoming weekend is a road game at Texas, followed by a home game Nov. 23 against league-leading Baylor.
So, it might have been understandable that in Saturday's 42-6 victory, the Pokes (8-1 overall, 5-1 in Big 12 play) may have looked a bit lethargic in beating the Kansas Jayhawks (2-7, 0-6).
HOWE â€” The Howe Lions were successful in opening their home basketball season Friday night as they handled the Wister Wildcats 70-35 at the Howe Gym.
