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.
