Not tonight. The short week didn’t help.”

Gundy said he thought Robinson would be ready for the Sooners.

With the win over Colorado, OSU moved to 6-1 in Big 12 play.

It marks the first time ever that the Cowboys have won six conference games.

No. 6 didn’t come easy, done without Robinson and with the offense committing four turnovers. Still, the Pokes pulled through.

"We showed a lot of heart tonight,” Gundy said.

OSU’s final home game featured plenty of festivities.

The fun began with three parachutists from the Black Daggers, a U.S. Special Operations unit, gliding into Boone Pickens Stadium, delivering the game ball to midfield.

The Star Spangled Banner was played while a group unfurled an American flag in the shape of the United States.

Senior Night activities followed, with each of OSU’s 22 seniors introduced with their families before the crowd.

At halftime, Michael Martin Murphy put on a short concert, coinciding with a recognition of the Oklahoma Veterans, Wounded Warriors, United States War Dogs Association and the Vet Dogs Association.

When Cate took the first snap from center and Tracy Moore opened at one wide receiver spot, it marked the 19th and 20th different Cowboys to start on offense this season.

That’s nearly two starters for every position.

Cowboys right tackle Brady Bond missed his third straight game with an ankle injury.

A senior, Bond participated in Senior Night activities and wore both the black jersey and pants, without pads.
