The Cowboys marched into Norman, and won. They tripped a few times, and fell over a couple more, and almost coughed up the ball for the last time this season, but they got back up after a running into the kicker penalty, and continued to march, 97 yards, to the house. Tyreek Hill's electric punt return may have given the entire program new life, as it propelled the Cowboys to their 9th straight bowl game. The 38-35 victory is one to remember for awhile, as a challenged group of kids put it together, when they could have quit. They put it together, at just the right time. So what did we learn from that performance?
Well, you guessed it...
#CRFFWhatWeLearned Most of these will have to deal with "The Return" And I'm sure we are all okay with that.— CowboyCountry (@Country61Cowboy) December 9, 2014
This applies to every #CRFFWhatWeLearned this season...

Pretty much, yeah. Totally. Yup. Yep. Mhhhmmmm. Yahs. Yes.
#CRFFWHATWELEARNED Mason Rudolph is the chosen one— Cade Webb (@CWebb_CRFF) December 9, 2014
He has to be right, or else how would he know how fast he had to run?
@CowboysRFF #CRFFWHATWELEARNED is Tyreek a physics major? Because he broke the speed of sound with "The Return"— Cody Cole (@codycole11) December 9, 2014

#CRFFwhatwelearned OU implosions are the best implosions. They're even better when prompted by Bedlam.— Robert Whetsell (@RobertW_CRFF) December 10, 2014
It would be the best Special Teams Unit in all of history.
Bob Stoops chin should play special teams. #Bigballer @CowboysRFF submit your #CRFFWhatWeLearned bedlam edition!!!— Big Mike (@MBHORNSFAN) December 10, 2014
I thought this was the most offensively potent group we've had since 2005. (lol)
@CowboysRFF #CRFFWhatWeLearned Gundy doesn't need the best team in school history to beat OU!— Brian Hodges (@brian_d_hodges) December 10, 2014
OU is three points worse than OSU when they have their worst team since 2005, a third string freshman QB, and one of the youngest secondaries in the nation. But that's none of my business...
#CRFFwhatwelearned Oklahoma State is only three points better than OU when they’re missing the star QB, WR, and RB (no lie, I’m still salty)— Stormin' in Norman (@StorminInNorman) December 10, 2014
So with this win, the Cowboys advance to the Cactus Bowl to play Washington. I believe OSU wins this game 38-21, behind 3 Mason Rudolph TD passes. The Big 12 Defensive Lineman of the year, Emmanuel Ogbah, will have 3 sacks. This game is THE momentum game moving forward for the program. I believe a win in this game will propel OSU to at least two 10 win seasons out of the next 3, based off the play of Mason Rudolph. Have a great holliday season AND SOAK UP ALLLLLLL OF THE OU TEARS!
