Game Details for Oklahoma State's Halloween Showdown with Texas
STILLWATER -- The game and TV details for Oklahoma State's Halloween showdown with Texas have been announced.
That's right, the Cowboys and Longhorns will face off at 3 p.m. CT with the game being televised on FOX.
While I like the idea of playing on FOX, I'm sure several OSU fans will agree with me in saying I was hoping for a Halloween night game in Boone Pickens Stadium.
The Cowboys are scheduled to play Iowa State this coming Saturday, Oct. 24 in Stillwater. Kickoff is scheduled for 2:30 p.m. CT on FOX. As for the Longhorns, they're supposed to play host to Baylor in Austin on Saturday. That game is scheduled for 2:30 p.m. CT on ESPN.
The Cowboys are currently 7-3 against the Longhorns in their last 10 meetings and Mike Gundy is currently 2-1 against Tom Herman. The last time these two teams met in Stillwater, the unranked Cowboys pulled off a stunning 38-35 upset over the then No. 6 ranked Longhorns.
However, the Longhorns got some revenge last season as they beat the Pokes 36-30 in Austin.
Oklahoma State is currently sitting at No. 6 in the nation as they moved up in both the Associated Press and Coaches Poll top-25 rankings on Sunday.
That bump in rankings come despite the Cowboys not playing for the second-straight week this past weekend. They were scheduled to play Baylor this past weekend, but the Bears had to shutdown all football activities due to an outbreak of positive COVID-19 tests among the players and coaches.
