STILLWATER â€” â€śObviously, that's enough excitement for one night,â€ť 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.
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. â€” 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.
Once again an earthquake shook the central part of Oklahoma so fiercely that LeFlore Countians felt their homes shake.
According to the Oklahoma Geological Survey, on Monday evening at 8:46 a 4.7 magnitude earthquake occurred 5.6 miles South East of Sparks, Okla. The tremor took place along the Wilzetta Fault which is also known as the Seminole Uplift.
Many people in LeFlore County report feeling the Monday night tremor.
LeFlore Countians felt a rumbling earlier tonight that was not from happy OU and OSU football fans, but from an earthquake!
The U.S. Geological survey has confirmed that an earthquake occurred at 10:53 CDT near Sparks, Okla. just east of Oklahoma City. Preliminary data suggests that the quake had a magnitude of 5.2 but may have been as strong as 5.8.
UPDATE: Authorities in Latimer county have announced that both girls were located and safe around 6 p.m.
Tracy Lake of Talihina awoke this morning just a little after 5 a.m. She got up like every morning and went to make coffee. She then went to wake up her daughter, Mercedes, 14, and her neice Rheil-lee, 13, but the girls were no where to be found. That's when she noticed that her door was half open.
It was first believed that the two girls snuck out during the night to hang out with friends, but none of their friends have seen them.
Just like last fall, the Poteau Lady Pirates softball team has an All-Stater.
One year after Shelby Culver made the Large East All-State Team, Briley Benson made the 2011-12 Large East team.
The Poteau senior will play in the Oklahoma Fast-Pitch Softball Coaches Association All-State Game next June at the University of Oklahoma Softball Complex in Norman.
HEAVENER â€” Famous author Charles Dickens wrote the novel, â€śA Tale of Two Cities.â€ť Had he been at Harvey Stadium Friday night, he might have penned a story entitled, â€śA Tale of Two Halves.â€ť
After the homestanding Heavener Wolves looked lifeless in the opening half, they got things going in the second half and downed the Pocola Indians 21-12 in a District 2A-6 contest.
MULDROW â€” What started out on the fields of Catoosa, Tahlequah, Poteau and Idabel gave the Poteau Pirate fans the sense that their new-found no huddle offense was going to bring the Pirates back to prominence in Class 4A.
But somewhere along the way, they ran up against teams that could also score points in bunches. Poteau's 2011 campaign ended on a field in Muldrow with their hopes and dreams being an afterthought.
