STILLWATER — Oklahoma State takes its first road trip of the season this week, and the only regular season contest in which the Cowboys will be in a different time zone. The contest will kickoff at 7:30 p.m. PT in Tucson, Ariz., meaning it will be 9:30 p.m. in Stillwater at time of kickoff.
"I think the players have adjusted to it because we've played in so many night games now. I know it's hard on the coaches," OSU coach Mike Gundy said. "I know it's hard on me. I think it's more of an adjustment to the coaches than the players. They can handle those time changes better than we can as adults."
The last time Oklahoma State had a game scheduled 9 p.m. or later? Last season's infamous Tulsa contest, in which the originally scheduled 9 p.m. start was delayed due to weather and didn't kickoff until after midnight.
