Boone Pickens Stadium already on fire

By David Ubben

STILLWATER, Okla. -- This is my third visit to Stillwater this season.

Tonight's crowd is already louder, more energized, more packed and arriving earlier than any other game I've been to this season.

That's how it should be with a top-15 opponent toting just one loss comes into their stadium.

The Cowboys just burst through the corral to flashing cameras everywhere in the stadium, and we're ready to get this thing kicked off.

As expected, a whole lot of purple made its way to Stillwater, but the noise tonight will be dominated by the orange.
