Stanford, OSU ready for desert scrum

By David Ubben

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The Big 12's biggest stage of the season is finally here.

Oklahoma State arrived (Curiously wearing all white hooded sweatsuits. A uniform preview?) and took part for their pregame tradition of a prayer circle. This time, though, the doors opened early enough for fans to be in the stadium to see it.

They cheered the Cowboys' arrival and quarterback Brandon Weeden gestured in their direction, egging on the cheers. A few Cowboys took some time for a little pre-prayer dance session in the circle too.

There's a few OSU fans dispersed throughout the stadium, but expect a packed house Monday night. We'll have plenty more here throughout the night.
