Horns Lasso Cowboys to Become Bowl-Eligible
Texas football fans and coaches alike have been waiting for a signature win all season long. The win over 23rd-ranked West Virginia appeared to be that win, until Saturday night in Stillwater, where Charlie Strong’s team did exactly what it needed to do against struggling Oklahoma State.
Spurred on by Strong’s pregame fashion declaration, Texas imposed its physical will, dominating Oklahoma State 28-7, wrote Brian Davis in the Austin American-Statesman Sunday. On a frigid night, Strong had his players strip off the extra clothing they thought would keep them warming, challenging them to be tough and ignore the elements. It worked, remarked senior receiver John Harris.
“He challenges us as men and he challenges us as a team,” Harris said. “It’s fun to have a coach like that.”
