STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) — To a man, Oklahoma State football players insisted Monday they were focused on the Cowboys' next opponent, Baylor. That doesn't mean it has been easy to put aside the disappointment of two days earlier.
Oklahoma State never trailed Oklahoma until the final play of overtime, losing 51-48 on Saturday in the annual Bedlam game.
Instead of the usual Sunday routine, coach Mike Gundy allowed his players to watch comedy clips of their choice "and they laughed for a long time" before settling in to view game film and start prepping for the game at Baylor (6-5, 3-5 Big 12).
Oklahoma State (7-4, 5-3) will play its eighth game in as many weeks and Gundy said his players — and coaches — needed the mental break.
