Oklahoma State to face Florida State in 2014
They'll meet on Aug. 30, 2014, in Arlington, Texas, in the sixth annual Cowboys Classic. The agreement between ESPN and the Cowboys will also bring Texas and UCLA to Cowboys Stadium on Sept. 13, 2014.
It'll be Oklahoma State's first appearance in the Cowboys Classic, but it's scheduled to open 2013 at Reliant Stadium against SEC foe Mississippi State.
Coach Mike Gundy had some high-profile flirtations with Arkansas and Tennessee and publicly disagreed with athletic director Mike Holder on scheduling philosophy. Gundy preferably wouldn't want to play games like OSU has scheduled in the next two seasons, but Holder loves the attention and cash that come with high-profile matchups like these. It's understandable on both sides.
Games like these are good for athletic departments and the game of college football, but make the jobs of coaches like Gundy a whole lot more difficult.
For now, it looks like it's clear who is calling the shots on scheduling at OSU.
