Oklahoma State Cowboys Football Tickets - History
Oklahoma State's football program became affiliated with a conference (the Southwest Conference) for the first time in 1915.At the time, they were the Oklahoma A&M; Aggies. The school changed its name to Oklahoma State in 1957. The following year, OSU joined the Big Eight Conference and in 1996, the Cowboys along with the rest of the Big Eight joined four schools from the Southwest Conference to form the Big 12.The Cowboys haven't claimed a national title yet, but have won 10 conference championships. Pro Football Hall of Famer Barry Sanders is the only OSU player to win the Heisman Trophy, but OSU has produced 32 All-Americans.

3/18/15: There has been speculation and rumor for several weeks that the Oklahoma State Cowboys were about to lose quarterback Daxx Garman. Those rumors were confirmed true by head coach Mike Gundy last week. Garman is transferring out of the Cowboys program, though there is no word on where he is going. Garman took over the starting job after an injury to J.W. Walsh. He was injured and out for the season a few weeks later. At the time, freshman Mason Rudolph took control of the offense and did pretty well. Rudolph will probably be the starter in Stillwater this fall, which may have meant that Garman was destined for third string duty.
3/4/15: The Oklahoma State Cowboys started spring practice yesterday, and the team hopes to build off their stunning win against rival Oklahoma and bowl game victory. To help them achieve that goal, the program announced some coaching changes. In fact, head coach Mike Gundy announced five new coaching staff members: Greg Adkins, Marcus Arroyo, Jason McEndoo (all as assistant coaches) and Bill Clay and Darrell Wyatt (as analysts). Adkins and Arroyo both have NFL coaching experience. Adkins was the tight ends coach for the Buffalo Bills and Arroyo was the quarterbacks coach for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
2/25/15: For all the criticism that the NCAA receives - and granted, much of it is well-deserved - sometimes they do the right thing. In this case, they gave the Cowboys Ashton Lampkin a medical waiver. That means that he will have an extra year of eligibility so he now has two more seasons that he can play college football. This is good news for Oklahoma State. Lampkin is projected to be a starting cornerback next season. He started the first four games of last season (with two interceptions, one being a pick-six) before suffering an ankle injury that ended his season in a win over Texas Tech.
2/18/15: It is anyone's guess how long Oklahoma State Mike Gundy will stay on the job. He has been there for a number of years now and has had some success in the past. Of course, the Cowboys had to beat rival Oklahoma in the final game of regular season last year to get bowl eligible and there have been reports that Oklahoma State's greatest donor, T. Boone Pickens, is not a fan. In any case, Gundy is still on the job, though he will have to find a new offensive line coach since Bob Connelly left the Cowboys for the sunshine in Southern California at USC, where he will be offensive line coach and run-game coordinator.
2/11/15: This is not going to sit well in Stillwater. The Oklahoma State Cowboys had a somewhat disappointing recruiting season, finishing ranked 38th according to Rivals. That would put them fifth in the Big 12, behind Texas (12), Oklahoma (14), West Virginia (33) and TCU (34). The Pokes did not have any five star recruits, and only two four star guys - defensive tackle Darion Daniels and QB John Kolar - in their class of 20. But recruiting does not mean everything and many programs, like TCU, have been able to transform a lot of two and three star recruits into contending teams.
2/4/15: This is not shaping up to be a great year for Big 12 recruiting. According to Rivals, Texas was ranked 8th and Oklahoma was 14th as of the end of January. They were the only Big 12 programs to crack the top 30. TCU was 31 and Baylor was 39. Oklahoma State came at 41. Of course, recruiting class rankings only go so far. There are countless lower rated players that went on to be stars. Additionally, Oklahoma State may have struck gold at the most important position, quarterback. Four-star recruit John Kolar has long been a Cowboy commitment, and a great quarterback covers up a lot of problems.
1/28/15: Oklahoma State should be feeling fairly vindicated at this point. About a year ago, Sport Illustrated ran a story claiming that Oklahoma State violated numerous recruiting violations. The story was strong enough to get the attention of the NCAA and launch a formal investigation. However, the investigation now seems to conclude that the Cowboys did not violate any major recruiting rules. That is good news for Mike Gundy and the program. Hopefully, everyone can move on now and let the Cowboys get back to rebuilding their program, which is off to a good start after beating Oklahoma and Washington in their last two games.
1/21/15: The 2014 season is in the books and it can now be forgotten about. It was a disappointing season on many levels, though injuries certainly took a toll on the team. At least the Cowboys beat the rival Oklahoma Sooners in Bedlam and got to a bowl game. So, let's turn the page and look to 2015. The Cowboys have a good looking recruiting class so far. That includes three 5-star recruits in running back Rodney Anderson and offensive linemen Jamal Danley and Bobby Evans. If everything progresses as planned, then Oklahoma State is certainly on the way back up.
1/14/15: The end of the college football season means that a lot of head and assistant coaches are relocating either for new jobs or because they lost their old one. Oklahoma State is no exception. The program parted ways with receivers coach Jason Ray, who had been in Stillwater for the past two years. They also hired Dan Hammerschmidt and Eric Wolford. Their roles have not been specified, but Hammerschmidt may be the cornerbacks coach while Wolford will be on offense. Wolford spent the past five seasons as head coach of Youngstown State, which as been a powerhouse in lower levels historically.
1/7/15: Where has this Oklahoma State team been all season? The Cowboys hit a rough patch for much of the 2014 season and were only able to make a bowl game because they shocked rival Oklahoma in the final game of the regular season. But they looked like a new team in the Cactus Bowl, where they whipped up on the Washington Huskies 30-22. The game was not even that close as the Cowboys built up a big lead early on. It also shows that the team in in good shape for next year. They seem to have found their quarterback in freshman Mason Rudolph, who threw for 299 yards and two touchdowns. They will also go into next year with quality wide receivers and an elite pass rusher - which should make it easy to build upon their 7-6 season this year.
11/16/14: The Cowboys' season looked so promising a few months ago. After a close loss to FSU in the season opener, it looked like OSU would be one of the better teams in the Big 12 and in the country. But a rash of injuries has completely derailed the season and the Cowboys are in danger of missing a bowl game. The latest setback occurred last Saturday at Baylor where the Bears stomped Oklahoma State 49-28. OSU could not get much of a running game going while Baylor racked up 317 yards and five touchdowns on the ground. The Cowboys are now 5-6 on the season and need to beat rival Oklahoma after a bye to get bowl eligible.
11/19/14: The injuries on to key players on the Oklahoma State Cowboys continue to wreak havoc on their season. It was just a few weeks ago that it looked like OSU could make a dark horse run at the Big 12, but the lack of available, developed talent has held them back. They fell 28-7 at home to Texas last Saturday. The offense was feeble at best. QB Daxx Garman managed ony 158 yards, one TD and an INT, while the running game provided only 34 yards on the day. The loss dropped the Cowboys to 5-5 on the season and 3-4 in the Big 12. OSU has a very tough test this Saturday at Baylor.
11/12/14: Oklahoma State has certainly struggled in conference play this season, most recently in a loss to Kansas State. The Cowboys were thought to be a dark horse team at the beginning of the season when they gave Florida State all they could handle and continued to play well in September. Many may point to the inconsistent play of QB Daxx Garman - and there is some truth to that. At the same time, he has lost four offensive lineman and the Cowboys have been forced to use walk-ons at times. Oklahoma State had a bye last week and gets the chance to be bowl eligible this week when they host Texas.
11/5/14: It has bee a tough fall for the Cowboys this season, particularly in Big 12 play. They had another tough one last Saturday, on the road at No. 9 Kansas State. The Cowboys got on the board first, but then it was all Wildcats, who scored the next 45 points. The game ended at 48-14 in favor of the home team. The loss dropped Oklahoma State to 5-4 on the season and 3-3 in Big 12 play. A trip to the College Football Playoffs is out of the question, but they can still salvage the season with a few more wins. They have a bye this week then are at home to face Texas.
10/29/14: It has been a tough couple of weeks for Oklahoma State. It looked, for a while, that the Cowboys were finding their groove while they were winning and moving up the rankings. Oklahoma State hosted West Virginia last Saturday, and the Mountaineers showed that their upset win over Baylor was not a fluke. West Virginia got out to an early 14-0 lead and the Cowboys responded to make it 14-10. But then it was all West Virginia, who won 34-10. OSU will have to cut down on the turnovers if they are going to turn this season back around. Another tough Big 12 matchup next week on the road at Kansas State.
10/22/14: Oklahoma State had looked pretty good this season. After losing the season opener to Florida State, the Cowboys ran off five straight wins and moved up to 15th in the polls. Unfortunately, that run came to an end against conference rival TCU (ranked 12). TCU overwhelmed Oklahoma State 42-9. Frogs QB Trevone Boykin had a monster day, throwing for 415 yards and three touchdowns. The Cowboys, meanwhile could not muster any sort of offense and need to rethink their offensive approach. The Cowboys (5-2/3-1) are back home this Saturday to host West Virginia, who is coming off of a big win.
10/15/14: Oregon had a big drop from second in the nation all the way to 12th following their loss two weeks ago. But they should be heading back in the right direction after beating 18th ranked UCLA on the road. The win improved Oregon's record to 5-1 over all and 2-1 in the Pac 12. This looked more like the Oregon team that we have known in the past. They jumped out to an early lead, got the two point conversion and just kept piling on the points. Final score: 42-30. The Ducks are back home this weekend to host the Huskies from the University of Washington.
10/8/14: The Oklahoma State Cowboys entered a carnage-filled Week 6 with ranked 21st in the country. Unlike many other top ranked programs, they avoided an upset and also improved their conference record. The Cowboys and Iowa State were tied 0-0 after the first quarter and OK State took a 13-6 lead to halftime. But then the Cowboys came to life and put up 24 second half points to win 37-20. Iowa State's Athletic Director was unhappy with the officiating and Big 12, implying there is a conspiracy against the Cyclones. But that does not matter. What matters is that the Cowboys only have one loss and that was to No. 1 Florida State in the season opener. Expect another big win this Saturday when the Cowboys travel to Kansas.
10/1/14: For the second time in the young season the Oklahoma State Cowboys were featured in a prime time game on national television. The first, of course, was the season opener against reigning college football champion Florida State. The Pokes lost, but performed well and earned a lot of admiration. They also got the big screen last Thursday night against Big 12 rival Texas Tech. The No. 24 ranked Cowboys struggled a bit early on, but rallied to win 45-35, which should bump them up in the rankings. OSU gets a couple extra days to prepare for a home game against Iowa State this Saturday.
9/24/14: Fear not, Cowpokes - it is only a matter of time before Oklahoma State gets their due. There is still discussion on how well the team handled themselves against number one Florida State - and that will end up benefiting the Cowboys at some point in the future. The good news is that the season is still young. The Cowboys have their full slate of Big 12 teams to run through, and they certainly have the talent to run through all of them. In the meantime, it is a bye week for Oklahoma State, so that just means they are getting better. Next game is on Thursday in primetime against Texas Tech.
9/17/14: Oklahoma State should have a big chip on their shoulder. The team took Number one ranked FSU down to the wire in the season opener, yet seemed to get punished for losing. This is actually a very good team that should be ranked in the top 15 overall, and hopefully, by the end of the season, they will be. Last week's game against UT-San Antonio was one of those practice game, but this week gets more exciting with Texas Tech all teed up. If the Pokes play like they did against the Seminoles, then this should be the blowout that gets them securely ranked in the standings.
8/28/14: Oklahoma State has been among the better programs in college football for some time now, though they do not seem to get the respect that in-state rival University of Oklahoma gets. And that is a shame. The Cowboys earned a place in the Cotton Bowl last season against SEC East Champion, Missouri. This season, they are starting off on a big stage. The Cowboys open the season against reigning National Champion and number one ranked Florida State. It will be a neutral site game at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas at 8:00 p.m. (EST) on Saturday, August 30. It is only 'neutral' in that it is not a home game for either team, but expect the Cowboys' fans to make it seem like one.
