“Definitely more excited about the basketball game,” Cramer said. “However, to quote Barry Switzer, I hope we ‘hang half a hundred on 'em' when it comes to Purdue.”
Aaron Schnautz, an OSU student from Broken Arrow, was always planning on attending the basketball game. But a Groupon deal for $13 Heart of Dallas Bowl tickets was too good for him to pass up. Monday night, he will stay his friend's house in the Dallas suburb of Southlake, then drive back to Oklahoma after the bowl.
“I do wish the two games were at least a few more hours apart,” Schnautz said. “But overall, this should be a great trip and a lot less costly than the trip to Glendale (for the Fiesta Bowl) last year.”
Some might look at these Cowboy fans as crazy. But they look at it as the perfect way to say goodbye to 2012 and hello to 2013.
“Who knows? We could end and begin a new year victoriously,” Cramer said.
