Best. Bye Week. Ever.
We’re the champs! Mike Gundy is just out here bringing OSU national championships that he wasn’t even alive for. Boone Pickens, you got your wish. This was a pretty cool bit of news for Oklahoma State, as they were retroactively awarded the 1945 national championship.

As always, Twitter was in peak form. Here are some of the highlights (and lowlights).
OSU fans react and are having a good time with it.

You can retroactively be awarded a national title but not retroactively correct an officiating error. Where are we at in society?!— CRFF (@CowboysRFF) October 13, 2016
I think it's safe to say that #okstate is now *THE* OSU.— CRFF (@CowboysRFF) October 13, 2016
