High Noon Highlights (11/14): ‘Playing against Mason, you know exactly what type of player he is’

Welcome to High Noon Highlights, a place to catch up with everything you missed from Oklahoma State Athletics and beyond.

NFL: Los Angeles Rams at Pittsburgh Steelers Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

It’s high noon...

Mason Rudolph and Baker Mayfield face-off:

On Thursday Night Football, AFC North division rivals Pittsburgh and Cleveland will face off. But the game has a bit more to it this year with the quarterbacks being rivals in college. Jake Trotter of ESPN wrote a great piece about how Oklahoma State’s Mason Rudolph and Oklahoma’s Baker Mayfield became pals off the field.

Before they ever faced off on the field, the two became friendly off of it through mutual buddies.

Oklahoma quarterback Trevor Knight, whom Mayfield later beat out, and Oklahoma State wide receiver Austin Hays, who became one of Rudolph’s favorite receivers, were best friends from high school in San Antonio.

Through Knight and Hays, Mayfield and Rudolph saw each other occasionally on offseason weekends, sometimes in Norman, sometimes in Stillwater. {ESPN}

Brock Martin talks about Cowboy Battalion uniform:

Jacob Unruh of The Oklahoman wrote a great piece on how OSU’s commemorative military uniforms happened. One player that thought they were particularly cool was Brock Martin.

“Pretty sick,” OSU defensive end Brock Martin said. “Both my mom’s dad and step dad both were in Vietnam. It’s huge for me. It means a lot to me. I have a lot of friends that have military background. “When I was little, I wanted to be in the Army or Marines or whatever. I think it’s really cool for us to be able to do that.” {The Oklahoman}

I think these are awesome. Phillip mentioned it on the podcast and I agree even though I’m normally not one to like military inspired uniforms since they can be tacky and just bad. But OSU and Nike nailed this.
