Gallant comeback extends OSU's bowl streak

STILLWATER — Nearly half the Cowboys’ crowd checkered in orange and black had emptied Boone Pickens Stadium at halftime on Saturday afternoon, fully unaware of a potential Pokes’ comeback.

Knowing of Oklahoma State’s issue with playing inconsistently as of late, you could hardly blame them for leaving with the Cowboys trailing Heisman candidate Will Grier and seventh-ranked West Virginia, 31-14 at halftime.

So when “Friends In Low Places” by Garth Brooks rang out across Boone Pickens Stadium and hundreds of fans celebrated on the field with group pictures and out-of-tune karaoke alongside their beloved Cowboys following a dramatic 45-41 victory, there was a sense of bewilderment.
