I think we already knew about this (not sure why it’s “breaking news”) but in case you forgot, OSU basketball will be playing SMU in the American Airlines Center on December 28. (News 9)

Interesting not on another way OSU could have ended the A&M game: ” The other thing Oklahoma State might have done is have the quarterback heave the ball deep down the middle. The clock stops when an incompletion crosses the out-of-bounds markers on the sidelines. But for a pass thrown through and out of the end zone, the clock does not stop until the ball crosses the backline.” (ESPN)

If you’re a student and you go to OSU and you make this happen I’ll post it on this blog. Many times. (here’s your inspiration)

Just because we need to see it one more time…

  • KNelson

    I can’t wait for the Baylor/A&M game. I think it will be very entertaining.

    Also good to see OSU in the top 50 of bball again. It’s a step. Next step is top 25!

  • KurtisWH

    I was screaming for the “throw it up option” too…

    Really, who cares if you throw it out of bounds. By the time you throw you only need to run 3 seconds, which with a 30 yard throw down the sideline I wouldn’t think that would be an issue.

  • Reed

    Didn’t Colt Mccoy teach us all that the clock stops when the ball hits the ground, and not when it crosses the sideline?

  • Phil

    How is Art Briles ranked above Gundy on Rivals list? Seriously!?
