Cowboys fans grade high, too
Georgia’s loss to OSU didn’t completely spoil the trip for those Bulldog followers who made the long trip to Stillwater.

Cowboys fans had much to do with that.

Michael Fitzpatrick, the opinions editor of The Red and Black, an independent student newspaper serving the University of Georgia, wrote about the hospitality of OSU fans during his time in Stillwater — before, during and after the game.

Fitzpatrick opened his column with, "Perhaps Georgia fans can learn a thing or two about ‘Southern Hospitality’ from the fine people of Stillwater, Okla.”

More from the piece: "I had never been to Oklahoma, never planned to visit Oklahoma and honestly did not care. And now, I’m not sure I want to leave.

"From the moment I arrived, the graciousness of the entire city has been something to behold.”

SNAKES ON A BRAIN
OSU receiver Dez Bryant was flagged twice for unsportsmanlike conduct penalties against Georgia, though one was offsetting.
