Win over OU should give the Cowboys look, feel of Cotton
LUBBOCK, Texas — The fact that Oklahoma State players were still wearing those “Big 12 Champs” bracelets with purpose on the second Saturday of November was a significant achievement for these Cowboys.
But they can take them off now.
OSU’s chance of winning the Big 12 Conference’s South Division ended Saturday night with a 56-20 loss to No. 2 Texas Tech at Jones AT&T Stadium.
Mathematically, the Cowboys could tie for the Big 12 South title, but no scenario of tiebreakers would give them the crown.
“We’ve got other goals on our mind, not just the Big 12 championship,” senior safety Ricky Price said. “Of course we wanted to get there, but they came out and took it from us.
“So we’ve got to move on.”
The Cowboys turn their attention to potential bowl games — Cotton and Holiday appearing to be the most likely. Because of the logjam atop the Big 12 South, a BCS berth will be tough to attain.
Bedlam could be the deciding factor for the Cowboys’ bowl destination, with a win sending them to the Cotton Bowl and a loss likely landing them to the Holiday Bowl.
