STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) - A series of bad numbers added up to Oklahoma State dropping out of the Top 25.
The Cowboys were called for a school-record 167 yards worth of penalties, committed four turnovers and dropped seven passes in a 59-38 loss at Arizona on Saturday night.
On Sunday, the team was back to work trying to get all the mistakes corrected.
Coach Mike Gundy said Sunday night that he didn't see the penalty problems coming. He had seen mostly clean football through training camp, when the Cowboys had officials come out to oversee three scrimmages. And there were no such issues in an 84-0 walkover against Savannah State in the opener.
He says coaches will pay closer attention to illegal plays and try to cut them out moving forward.
