Oklahoma State Adds New Sign to BPS

The national championship team is being honored.

1945 National Champions Sign that now hangs in Boone Pickens Stadium in Stillwater.

Some new hardware has been added into Boone Pickens Stadium. Today, 1945 National Champions has been added on the east side of the stadium next to 2011 Big 12 Champions.

Last year, Oklahoma State was retroactively awarded the 1945 National Championship by the American Football Coaches Association. The trophy has been in Stillwater since October, and now team is immortalized in Boone Pickens Stadium. This could be used as motivation for the 2017 team as they have title aspirations.

Some of the Cowboy faithful aren’t pleased with the decision.

And, of course, OU fans had a blast making fun of the decision, acting like their team has never claimed a championship.

However, leave it to sideline reporter Robert Allen to attempt to set the record straight.

Going in and seeing "National Champions" inside BPS will be an incredible feeling for Cowboys fans, even if it happened 72 years ago. We're 15 days away from Cowboy football, folks!
