MORGANTOWN, W.Va. -- As was expected, OSU head coach Mike Gundy and Cowboy backs coach Jason McEndoo stayed behind Friday afternoon when the team’s charter flight left Stillwater.

Both with sons playing on the Stillwater High team that had a Class 6A-II state semifinal game Friday night in Yukon, Gundy and McEndoo took a private flight that got them to West Virginia around 1:30 a.m.

And they had a couple of extra guests, with the radio crew of Dave Hunziker and John Holcomb calling the OSU men’s basketball game Friday night, then meeting the coaches at the airport.

“As they found out, they started politicking outside my office,” Gundy joked.


Extra points

* The Cowboys continued their clean play, finishing with two penalties and no turnovers, same as last week against Kansas.

* OSU quarterback Dru Brown had an ice pack wrapped around his right hand as he spoke to media following Saturday’s victory, perhaps evidence of a midweek injury that was rumored to have happened, or maybe one that was sustained during the game.

* OSU defensive tackle Cameron Murray had five tackles, two for loss, and one sack, either tying or setting a career best in all three categories.

* The last player introduced during West Virginia’s pregame salute to its seniors was former Stillwater offensive lineman Kelby Wickline. He’s the starting right guard for the Mountaineers and the son of former OSU offensive line coach Joe Wickline.
