The Oklahoma State Cowboys came from two scores down to beat the Texas Longhorns 32-24 on Saturday in Austin. The win propelled the Pokes to 6-0 on the season and a possible Top 10 ranking come Week 8 of the college football season.
Considering how unusual this season has been for the Pokes, with tough early-season wins against Missouri State, Tulsa and Boise State, who saw this Oklahoma State team getting off to a 6-0 start?
Admittedly, not this guy. But here we are, and this is why college football is great.
Anyway, Mike Gundy was enjoying himself in the Texas locker room after the game, with his dance move that has become a staple in recent seasons.
Gundy should be extra pumped as he’s doing it with the unusual combination of defense and the running game, not a high-flying passing attack that has been a staple of the head coach’s career in Stillwater.
The Longhorns were averaging nearly 500 yards per game coming into this game, but they were held to 317 yards by the Cowboys defense. And while Bijan Robinson still had a good day in the box score, with 135 rushing yards and two touchdowns, he slowed down as the game progressed, as the Cowboys gave up just seven points in the second half, including pitching a shut out in the fourth quarter. In fact, Oklahoma State held Texas to just six total yards in the fourth quarter.
Those are the kind of stats that will make a grown man dance.
