🔼   Fought To The Finish. Isaac Likekele led Oklahoma State men's basketball with 16 points vs. No. 6 Kansas, but it wasn't enough for the upset bid as the Cowboys lost 74-63 to the Jayhawks in their Big 12 opener. Their next opportunity is this Saturday with a home matchup against Texas. Tip-off is at 1:00pm CT.

🔼   Home Sweet Home. Oklahoma State women's basketball is at the tail end of a four-game home stand and looking to earn its first Big 12 win of the year tonight when it hosts Kansas State. Tip-off is at 6:30pm CT and you can still grab tickets here.

🔼   What's Your 20? Jaylen Warren saved his best season for last, running for 1,216 yards and finishing as tied for the 19th best single-season rushing total in Cowboy football history. (Joseph Randle had the same exact production back in 2011.)

🔼   Crunch The Numbers. So, just how impressive has the Mike Gundy Era been through 17 years? Click here to view his accomplishments through his coaching career and crunch the numbers alongside Cowboy football.

"It's a humbling sport."

John Smith saw the mountaintop when it came to his own career as a wrestler—winning Olympic gold medals, Pan American Games competitions, and more.

But for every success there were setbacks, like when he won a gold medal at the Goodwill Games and turned around to lose his first match back at Oklahoma State.

Watch Episode 2 of our five-part face-to-face interview with John Smith as he recounts the ups and downs of his college days—and be on the lookout for the rest of it this week.
