The rivals meet in the season finale Nov. 28 in Norman.
Pickens said he had Oklahoma State coaches and donors visit his Texas ranch last week for a brainstorming session on how to make the team better. The Cowboys plan to move into a new west end zone facility at Boone Pickens Stadium on Monday.
Pickens donated the money to renovate the stadium, including new suites atop the north and south stands and a new weight room, offices and dining area in the bowled-in west end zone.
"We talked about how we were going to be better and how we’re going to win,” Pickens said. "Some great ideas came out of there. Some of our donors were there. It was a good meeting.”
