It’s high noon...

Gundy calls play before it happens:

Mike Gundy was brilliant last night in the Coaches’ Film Room. He was making jokes with Gary Patterson as well as basically “hosting” the show. Well we think that if Gundy ever finds himself needing a new job, broadcast might be an option.

But he’s also pretty good at broadcasting, as he proved on Monday night when he was a part of the ESPN Coaches Film Room MegaCast that was shown on ESPNU during the national championship game.

And it was on that broadcast that he pulled a Tony Romo calling — with great accuracy — the play LSU was about to run in the fourth quarter, an inside fade to the end zone that resulted in the Tigers’ final touchdown in the 42-25 win over Clemson: {USA Today}

Viktor Hovland wins first professional event:

#TwitterlessViktor has accomplished a first his career. He won the Hero Challenge for his first win as a professional. He took to the European Tour’s Twitter to express his excitement. Congrats to Hovland!

Wearing black jeans, Hovland won the Hero Challenge, a 100-yard target competition Tuesday night in Abu Dhabi including Brooks Koepka, Danny Willett and Matthew Fitzpatrick, among others. The former Oklahoma State standout routed Oosthuizen, who was wearing blue jeans, in the final, 190-55.

Impressively, Hovland didn’t miss the target in three rounds. {Golf Channel}

Cowgirls looking to bounce back at Kansas State:

Get the run down on Cowgirl Basketball’s game against Kansas State. They’ll look for a win after a tough game against Baylor.

What the return of Hubbard means for the Big 12:

This is a good look at what the return of Chuba Hubbard means for Oklahoma State’s conference opponents.

Oklahoma State was fairly young when they faced Texas back in Week 4, to open the Big 12 slate. Redshirt freshman quarterback Spencer Sanders was getting his first career start in Big 12 play, and Hubbard had yet to reach double-digit starts in his college career at that point.

This now looks like the top three teams in the Big 12 for 2020 could be the Oklahoma schools and the Longhorns. The rival Oklahoma Sooners should still be considered a top 10 team heading into the offseason, despite losing yet another Heisman finalist at quarterback in senior Jalen Hurts. {Fansided}
