OSU football notebook: Mike Gundy fine with 'Morning Cowboys'

Gundy: “I think college football's supposed to be played during the day. Whether 11 or 1 or 2, that's the way college football ought to be. I like to play day games.”

TCU is known for its defense. Its secondary, in particular. The Horned Frogs have picked off 10 passes this year, which is tied for 10th in the nation. And corner Jason Verrett leads the Big 12 with 11 pass breakups.

Challenge accepted, says OSU receiver Josh Stewart.

“We're excited as a receiving corps to go out here, because TCU's defense is hyped up,” he said. “People talk good about them. But this is where we show what our receiving corps has got.”

Stewart found plenty of success against TCU last season, catching six passes for 120 yards. Overall, the Cowboys totaled 324 passing yards.

GUNDY NOT SYMPATHETIC TCU MUST RETURN TO STILLWATER

Because of a scheduling quirk absorbed when TCU took Texas A&M's schedule upon joining the Big 12, the Horned Frogs must return to Boone Pickens Stadium for the second year in a row.

Does Gundy feel any sympathy? Not exactly.

“I had to go to places two years in a row myself,” he said. “I'd like for them to have to come here three years in a row. I like to play here.”

Most recently, OSU had to travel to Texas in both 2010 and 2011. But the Cowboys have also benefitted from such scheduling oddities, which were mostly created because of conference realignment. Those same two seasons, OSU hosted Bedlam.
