Checking in from Stillwater
By David Ubben
STILLWATER, Okla. -- Gorgeous night for football here at one of the league's nicest stadiums for a great game.
Arizona and Oklahoma State are still a couple hours away from kickoff, but get ready for plenty of fireworks tonight and plenty of passes.
Nick Foles and Brandon Weeden are two of the best at doing it.
Oklahoma State's last two Thursday night games were classics, including a comeback win by the Cowboys led by Weeden over Colorado in 2009. That was his first meaningful action, but he's had plenty since then and proven himself as one of the nation's best passers.
Last year, Oklahoma State erased a 14-point deficit twice to beat Texas A&M, 38-35 in a game that eventually helped decide the Big 12 South, which the Cowboys and Aggies shared with Oklahoma.
Is there another classic on tap here in Stillwater?
Either way, it'll be fun to watch.
