When these Cowboys ride for the Brand, they have been outfitted by the best in the business. Oklahoma State and Nike have partnered to create some of the coolest uniforms in football, with a seemingly endless number of combinations to choose from.
Oklahoma State has emerged as one of the nation’s elite football programs under head coach Mike Gundy. The Cowboys have advanced to a school-record 10 consecutive bowls including the program's first-ever BCS appearance in 2011. OSU has averaged nearly 10 wins a season for the last six years and produced six first-round NFL draft picks since 2009.
The Cowboys have recorded four double-digit win seasons since 2010. OSU had a historical 2011 campaign that featured OSU's first-ever Big 12 Championship, a school record 12 wins, two first-round draft picks, six All-Americans and being ranked nationally in the Top 10 the entire season. Since that point, the eyes of college football have focused on Oklahoma State and the national spotlight has shined on Stillwater.
The Oklahoma State program has made 13 bowl appearances in the last 14 seasons. Numerous Cowboys have earned national awards over the years. Justin Blackmon won back-to-back Biletnikoff Awards as the nation's best receiver playing for OSU in 2010 and 2011 and was selected by the Jacksonville Jaguars fifth overall in the 2011 NFL Draft. Hall of Fame running backs Barry Sanders and Thurman Thomas made their marks on the game right here at Oklahoma State. All Pro Dallas Cowboy kicker and former OSU standout Dan Bailey captured the 2010 Lou Groza Award for the nation’s top kick. In 2008, Matt Fodge won the Ray Guy Award for the nation’s top punter.
OSU produced the 1988 Heisman Trophy winner when Sanders re-wrote the NCAA record books. Sanders, who was featured on the 2013 EA Sports NCAA Football video game cover, went on to become one of the greatest backs to ever play the game. The Cowboys have played in 26 bowls dating back to their first appearance against TCU in the 1945 Cotton Bowl. Oklahoma State has an all-time bowl winning percentage of .615, which ranks among the elite nationally.
From his playing days in the late 1980s to his outstanding coaching career, Mike Gundy has had the greatest impact on Oklahoma State football of any individual. His nearly 25 years of dedicated service and commitment to OSU have made him a true Cowboy. In 2011, Gundy signed a lifetime contract with the program to secure his future in Stillwater.
