Postgame earthquake offers more drama
By David Ubben
STILLWATER, Okla. -- Mike Gundy was addressing his jubilant team in a winning locker room when it hit.
The Richter scale read 5.6, and the ground beneath Boone Pickens Stadium shifted just minutes after the Cowboys walked off the field as 52-45 winners over Kansas State in a classic Big 12 shootout.
"It kind of shook and everybody's looking around," said quarterback Brandon Weeden. "I'd never felt one before."
Gundy said he was was too busy focusing on the message to feel it, but for the Cowboys, it was only another notch on an intense, memorable night in Stillwater.
