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.

Fox camera work is pathetic. You get the blimp view as if they are providing a coach’s scouting copy and then after the ball is snapped sort of zoom in but none of it is close enough to see player numbers! Usually a poor production in terms of broadcast quality compared to other networks. Fox doesn’t seem to care about college football broadcasts and their competitive quality.

Compared to ESPN, it is bush league personified. We’ll likely get to listen to Spencer Tillman wax philosophic about intentionality and other similar adjectives while feeling like we’re watching the game from a helicopter or blimp. So high up good luck seeing the football!
