OSU vs. MISSOURI: The cowboys are in a new position - 5-0 and in the spotlight

By Scott Wright Published: October 10, 2008
STILLWATER — Oklahoma State linebacker Andre Sexton said it best when asked about the situation facing the Cowboys Saturday at Missouri.

"We’ve never been in this position before,” the fourth-year junior said.


That’s good, bad, scary and exciting all at the same time.

None of the OSU players have been in a game this big before. They’re ranked No. 17, trying to get to 6-0 for just the second time since World War II, and trying to do it on the road against one of the country’s top three teams quarterbacked by the Heisman Trophy front-runner on a nationwide broadcast.

No pressure... right?
