Picking up the pieces
Oklahoma State lost last week as a double-digit home favorite for the second time in three weeks, causing a week of panic for the fan base — even though coach Mike Gundy said he isn't pushing the panic button. If OSU can look impressive in winning in a tough environment Saturday, it will help soothe things heading into an open week. If the Cowboys can't, though, they're staring a losing season straight in the face.
