GRADUATION DAYFive players received their degrees at OSU’s graduation ceremony Saturday at Gallagher-Iba Arena. Four seniors, offensive lineman David Washington, safety Ricky Price, receiver Todd Nelson and punter Matt Fodge, graduated Friday, along with junior offensive lineman Andrew Lewis, who will begin work on a master’s degree in the spring.
KEEPING THINGS FUNJunior linebacker Andre Sexton says the early bowl practices have been serious and laid-back at the same time. "Everybody’s flying around and having fun out there,” Sexton said. "The coaches have structured the bowl practices in a way where we’re having fun and it’s not just hard work out there. We’re getting our work done on the field, then we’re getting off it. "That’s what’s good about bowl season. Now we get to have fun and enjoy it.”
DEZ ON THE DUCKSWith the whirlwind of awards shows and finals week, OSU receiver Dez Bryant hasn’t had much time to study up on the Cowboys’ Holiday Bowl opponent. "I don’t know too much about Oregon,” he said. "The only thing I know about them is their uniforms. I think they’re nice. I like how they switch them up.” By Scott Wright
