Alan Bowman Has Been Granted an Additional Year, Will Return to Oklahoma State

Bowman will be back for his seventh year of college football.



Alan Bowman has the all-clear to return for his seventh year of college football.

Thanks to successful eligibility waiver, the quarterback who most recently captained the Cowboys’ offense to a 10-4 record will run it back in 2024.

Shortly after OSU’s press release, Bowman tweeted out his intention to return to Stillwater.

“Just want to say thanks to all my Oklahoma State teammates, the coaches and fans for helping make the 2023 season the most fun I’ve ever had playing football.

“That said, I just head back that I was granted another year of eligibility, and we have unfinished business. I love Stillwater and this program, so I’ll be back in 2024 to make a championship run.”

“Alan met the criteria for an extension of his eligibility due to his season ending injury in 2019 combined with redshirting at the University of Michigan,” OSU’s Senior Associate Athletics Director for Compliance Ben Dyson said in a school release.

Despite not having the reins until Big 12 play, Bowman finished 2023 ranked second in the league in passing yards per game and led the Big 12 in pass attempts and completions. Bowman’s 3,460 passing yards ranked seventh for a season in program history, and his 304 completions ranked fourth.

This the biggest question mark remaining for a Cowboys’ offense which will return Ollie Gordon, its entire starting offensive line and leading receiver Brennan Presley. Gunnar Gundy entered the transfer portal prior to OSU’s bowl game, leaving Garret Rangel as the only other QB on the roster with any experience behind Bowman.

Bowman started his career at Texas Tech, throwing for 5,260 yards in three injury-riddled seasons. He then transferred to Michigan for two seasons before his move to OSU.
