OSU football notebook: Hot ticket

Oklahoman Published: October 28, 2009
As of Tuesday afternoon, less than 100 tickets remained for the OSU-Texas game. The main bowl of Boone Pickens Stadium is expected to be completely sold out and the school has already sold enough tickets to break the stadium’s single-game attendance record for the third time this season (Georgia then Grambling State).

Well-protected
Texas has taken note of the protection OSU quarterback Zac Robinson has received this season. He’s been sacked four this season.

"He’s got real good pocket presence,” said UT defensive coordinator Will Muschamp said. "They use a lot of pocket movement. It’s hard to get pressure.”

Of course, last season, Robinson entered the Texas game having been sacked four times, and the Longhorns nailed him five times.

No official blackout
With rumors of an official "blackout” swirling, OSU released a statement on Tuesday saying that the school encourages fans to wear orange to the game but will not discourage the student inspired movement for a "blackout.
