No. 3 Oklahoma State is getting into uncharted territory.
The Cowboys are off to an 8-0 start for only the second time in the program's history and seem to be in the driver's seat for a shot at the BCS championship if they're able to win their final four games.
During Mike Gundy's time as head coach, Oklahoma State has made it to 7-0 in 2008 and 6-0 last season before losing. This Saturday night against No. 17 Kansas State (7-1, 4-1 Big 12), the Cowboys will get their first chance at duplicating the best start in school history achieved by the 1945 team that finished the season 9-0 after winning the Sugar Bowl.
Quarterback Brandon Weeden said Monday it's ''obviously awesome'' to be 8-0 but there are critical games left on the schedule.
