No. 9 Oklahoma State mounted a historic comeback, scoring 30 unanswered points to pull and head and, ultimately outlast, No. 5 Notre Dame.


OSU Bullets

• Berry Tramel on the Comeback Cowboys’ toughness:

OSU beat the Irish at their traditional game. OSU out-toughed Notre Dame. The Cowboys won the line of scrimmage. They produced a running game and the Irish did not; OSU’s pass rush got to Irish quarterback Jack Coan more than the Notre Dame pressure got to Sanders. 

And mentally, OSU was tougher. When things were rotten, the Cowboys sharpened their elbows and didn’t blink.

• This makes OSU’s 2-3 record in NY6 bowls seem not so bad.

The Irish fell to 0-8 in BCS or New Year’s Six bowls, the most losses by any team without a win. Their most recent win in a bowl that is now part of the New Year’s Six was the 1994 Cotton Bowl Classic.

ESPN

• 😬

• Someone look this up.

• He looked it up.

• Seems decent.

• Notre Dame’s band was unable to make the game due to COVID concerns. So the Cowboys lent a hand.

• OSU is now 5-0 in Cursive Cowboys lids. Style and functionality. Make them the new default!


Non-OSU Bullets

• Gundy would never.

• This story about recently-departed John Madden was pretty great. [NYT]
