Oklahoma State unveils throwback jerseys for Homecoming:
During this years Homecoming, Oklahoma State will be celebrating the 30th anniversary of Barry Sanders Heisman year. They’ll be paying tribute to Sanders down to the uniforms they’ll wear when they take on Texas for the game Saturday. This is probably one of my favorites, definitely in the top 5, uniforms Oklahoma State has put out. They’ll be throwback uniforms featuring a patch honoring the 1988 season. With the old school throwback helmets and white pants, fans at the game will feel like they’ve stepped into 1988. We’ve been thinking this was going to happen this season for a while now. But it’s exciting to see it come to life. Oklahoma State Football released a video giving fans a full model of what they will look like.
P.S. you didn’t hear it from me if your significant other sees your credit card bill, but you can buy these online on the Student Union Store website.
Cowboy Basketball play scrimmage against Wichita State:

A great read about the namesake of Oklahoma State’s new baseball stadium:
Nathan Ruiz of the Oklahoman wrote a fantastic piece about Cecil O’Brate, the man who donated $35 million towards the new baseball stadium and who the stadium will be named after.
Born and raised in Enid, O’Brate worked as a newspaper delivery boy, grocery store stocker, butcher, gas station attendant and used car salesman, all before he turned 17. He spent his senior year of high school in Syracuse, Kansas, a small town about 75 miles north of the Oklahoma panhandle where he farmed while living with his grandparents.
“You can’t quite see the end of the world from there, but just about.”
That’s all for today folks! Have a great afternoon!
