Last year, Oklahoma State attempted a “blackout” game against TCU in November and the fans made it happen. The entire stadium was covered in black Oklahoma State gear as the Pokes rolled TCU, 63-17.
Given the turnout last year, Oklahoma State has decided to bring the blackout back in 2022, for the same weekend, but this time it will be against Iowa State on November 12.
The announcement was made via Twitter, with Cowboys’ wide receiver Brennan Presley narrating the video.
“What’s up Cowboys fans, it’s Brennan Presley, BP here. I just wanted to let you guys know that November 12th when we play Iowa State will be our Military Appreciation and Blackout Game,” Presley said. “And personally, to me, the Blackout Game, just looking at the crowd when you’re on the field, it’s such an unreal experience. It was one of my favorite scenes I’ve ever seen at a football game. So I can’t wait to see you guys there this year. Get pumped up for that game. We’re going to turn up and let’s go!”
Oklahoma State will hope to exact revenge on their only loss of the regular season last year when Iowa State took down the Pokes 24-21 in Ames.
It should be a raucous atmosphere in Stillwater when the Cyclones come to town, and the added excitement of a crowd theme should make it that much better.
