FAIR DAY FOR ANDERSON
Bye weeks are officially over for the Cowboys, after their schedule featured two open dates in three weeks. OSU's game at Kansas on Saturday marks a stretch of eight games in eight weeks to finish off the season.
So how did the Cowboys take advantage of their final weekend off until December? Wide receiver Isaiah Anderson, a Wichita Falls product, went to the Texas State Fair. “It was a little cold out there, a little rainy, but I still had a good day,” Anderson said. “Spent all my money on food and rode a couple rides, so I got my money's worth.”
Anderson sampled several of the various interesting eats.
“I'm a big turkey leg man,” Anderson said, “but my favorite thing out there was the fried jambalaya. It was the first time I had had it, and it was actually really good.”
COWBOYS HAVE DOMINATED KU
As if KU's early season struggles don't suggest a decided OSU edge, recent series history also tilts heavily toward the Cowboys.
In the Big 12 era, OSU is 7-1 vs. Kansas, with KU's 2007 Orange Bowl team the only Jayhawk squad to beat the Cowboys, 43-28. That's OSU's second-best record against a Big 12 foe. The Cowboys are 15-1 against Baylor.
