Oklahoma State football: 2013 schedule heavy on games in Texas

The Big 12 on Tuesday released its tentative 2013 schedule, a slate that features just one OSU home game in September. That contest will be on Sept. 14 against Lamar, a Football Championship Subdivision school.

INVADING MORGANTOWN

The Cowboys will open their Big 12 schedule at West Virginia, their first time playing in Morgantown since 1928. Several of the former OSU assistants — led by Mountaineer head coach Dana Holgorsen and defensive coordinator Joe DeForest — should still be around to welcome the Cowboys to their new turf. Things didn't go so well for WVU in Stillwater this season, with the Cowboys handing the Mountaineers a 55-34 loss at BPS.

TRIPLE BYES

The 2013 season features three bye weeks, on Sept. 21, Oct. 12 and Nov. 30. The open date before Bedlam is particularly intriguing. In 2011, OSU used the extra week to construct a brilliant game plan that relied on heavy blitzing and gashing the Sooners with the run game en route to a 44-10 victory.

LATE BEDLAM

Bedlam returns to Stillwater in 2013 — but not until Dec. 7. That's the latest regular-season game in school history, which will cut into the coaching staff's winter recruiting period. But it's unavoidable in a scheduling landscape that is largely driven by television contracts.
