It’s high noon...

Cowboy and Cowgirl basketball to have open practice:

Will you be in town for the Oklahoma State- Kansas State football game one the September 28th? Get to Stillwater a little early and head to GIA. Both the men’s and women’s basketball teams will host a open practice that’s going fans a look at next year’s squads. The action will start at 11:30 a.m. with the Cowgirls and the Cowboys will start at 12:30 p.m.

All-American Vivian Gray returns for her junior season to a talented Cowgirls squad that added the likes of NJCAA National Player of the Year, Natasha Mack, and 2019 Canadian Player of the Year, Micah Dennis.

The Cowboys return all five starters, including 78 percent of their scoring, and have been joined by a top-25 recruiting class that includes Avery Anderson III, Kalib Boone, Keylan Boone, Chris Harris, grad transfer Jonathan Laurent, Hidde Roessink and Marcus Watson. {]

Cowgirl soccer looks to stay undefeated:

Get to Neal Patterson Stadium tonight at 7:00 p.m. or Sunday at 1 p.m. to catch the undefeated Cowgirls take on Kennesaw State and SMU respectfully.

This Week’s Opponents

• Kennesaw State puts its 5-2-0 record on the line against OSU, which will mark the first-ever meeting between the two programs.

• SMU is 6-1-0 on the season and takes a three-game winning streak into its Thursday match at Oklahoma. The Mustangs have outscored their opponents 19-2 on the season, with Allie Thornton’s seven goals leading the way.

OSU is 4-0-0 all time against SMU, but the two teams haven’t met in the regular season since 2010.

Previous Meetings

2010 - OSU 2, SMU 1 (Dallas)

2009 - OSU 4, SMU 0 (Stillwater)

2008 - OSU 3, SMU 0 (Dallas)

2007 - OSU 2, SMU 0 (Stillwater) {}

Texas seems dialed in for Saturday:

Bill Haisten wrote for the Tulsa World about the OSU game could finally be that Texas is circling.

For the first time, it feels like the Texas program and its fans have actually circled the Oklahoma State game on the schedule. In Austin, there appears to be an “enough is enough” approach to the OSU game.

Consider the pressure on Tom Herman and the Longhorns. If Herman’s team loses on Saturday, he would be 0-3 against Gundy.

In a national sense, this is an elimination challenge for Texas. On their home turf two weeks ago, the Longhorns were beaten by LSU. A loss to Oklahoma State would finish Texas as a contender for College Football Playoff participation. {Tulsa World}
