Between his offense developing into one of the nation's best and his presence allowing Mike Gundy to get out of offensive meetings and focus on the big picture, Holgorsen helped the Cowboys take a big step toward their first Big 12 championship a year ago.

West Virginia's problems are numerous, and there are no easy answers -- especially when players are making elementary mistakes -- according to head coach Dana Holgorsen.
Oklahoma State's Homecoming game was played on Oct. 20 when the Cowboys downed Iowa State 31-10 in front of the Cowboys faithful. Thus, Saturday's game with West Virginia could be called Homecoming, Part II as former offensive coordinator Dana Holgorsen and longtime assistant coach Joe DeForest lead West Virginia into Stillwater for the Mountaineers first Big 12 clash with the Cowboys.
It is hard to predict when a shoout-out will take place. There are times that two high powered offenses meet, only to end up in a 9-6 field goal kicking contest.I know I did not see this coming.
