Oklahoma State football: Bad omen about Big Fox
For the Friday Oklahoman, I wrote about the Big 12′s contract with Big Fox. You can read it here. It’s a good thing for the Big 12. But is it a good thing for OSU and OU?
The Cowboys and Sooners have played a combined six games on Big Fox. They are a combined 0-6. That’s a stat courtesy of Joe Spadea, who once was news director at Fox-25 in Oklahoma City and now is the news director at the CBS affiliate in Omaha, Neb.
That 0-for-Fox is not a good sign for OSU, considering the Cowboys host Texas on Saturday night, a game that will be televised by Big Fox.
Here are the Big Fox games played by the Sooners and Cowboys:
2004 Cotton Bowl: Ole Miss 31, OSU 28. Eli Manning vs. Josh Fields. Great game. Called by Thom Brennaman, Tim Green and Bill Maas.
2007 Fiesta Bowl: Boise State 43, OU 42, overtime. An epic, with Marcus Walker’s heroics overshadowed by Boise State’s trickery. Called by Brennaman, Barry Alvarez and Charles Davis.
2008 Fiesta Bowl: West Virginia 48, OU 28. A beatdown of Sam Bradford by the underrated Mountaineers. Called by Matt Vasgersian, Terry Donahue and Pat Haden.
2009 Big Bowl: Florida 24, OU 14. The national championship game, won by Tim Tebow and a Florida defense that staged two goal-line stands. Called by Brennaman and Davis.
2010 Cotton Bowl: Ole Miss 21, OSU 7. A poorly-played snoozer, with Dexter McCluster vs. a banged-up Zac Robinson. Called by Pat Summerall and Daryl Johnston.
