Oklahoma State Cowboys
It’s difficult to find a bright spot on an Oklahoma State defense that gave up over 621 yards and 41 points in its Big 12 opener against Texas Tech on Saturday night. However, if there was one of any sort, freshman safety Jarrick Bernard was a decent candidate.

Oklahoma State University faithful celebrated the groundbreaking of the long-awaited Michael and Anne Greenwood School of Music Saturday in Stillwater.

Having had a week to digest the investigative report released by Ohio State University on head coach Urban Meyer has not done anything to temper the initial impression that the fix was in from the start.

Oklahoma City general manager Sam Presti framed it as positively as he could, suggesting the length of time the Thunder would be without their best offensive and defensive players would not be long.

OKLAHOMA CITY — Russell Westbrook and the Oklahoma City Thunder have agreed to a five-year extension that projects to be worth $205 million, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reports.
