Daily Bullets (Oct. 22): Happy Homecoming, Beat Texas

Thanks for stopping by – here’s your daily dose of Oklahoma State sports news.



How wild that this could be the last time Texas plays in Stillwater for some time – here’s the predictions and TV/viewing details on today’s game.

Three Thoughts

β€’ I’ve always taken a “the enemy (Texas) of my enemy (OU) is my friend” approach with the Longhorns, never really disliking the Horns, but it doesn’t hurt that the games have been so fun against them and went OSU’s way more often than not in recent history:

And OSU-Texas games have been dramatic. Each of the last five games in the series have been decided by eight points or less, including two overtime games (OSU won 13-10 in 2017; Texas won 41-34 in 2020).


β€’ It’ll be exciting to see if Chuba Hubbard gets pretty serious run this weekend in Carolina after the starter was moved ahead of him this week

β€’ Berry Tramel highlighted something true about OSU’s series against Texas – going 8-4 against the Longhorns has helped the Cowboys build a brand.

Two Quotes

β€’ The Longhorns and Taylor Swift have a good thing going:

β€’ The Justin Gilbert/Jason Taylor pick-sixes are two of the more notable ones in OSU history:

One Question

β€’ Who annually has higher expectations to win the Big 12 – Cowboy Wrestling or Cowboy Golf? For some reason the Pokes finishing fourth in Big 12 match play feels really underwhelming.
