Cowboys arrive in Dallas



DALLAS – Oklahoma State players and coaches arrived in Dallas today to continue preparations for the Heart of Dallas Bowl, where the Cowboys will take on Purdue Jan. 1 at Cotton Bowl Stadium.

With temperatures in the 40s, coach Mike Gundy’s squad took the field for a two-hour practice Thursday afternoon at Highlander Stadium on the campus of Highland Park High School, the alma mater of the likes of Doak Walker, Bobby Layne and Matthew Stafford.

Gundy was pleased with the effort and focus of his squad, which had not practiced since last Sunday.

“Practice went really well; the players were excited and had a nice two-hour workout,” Gundy said. “Everybody traveled safely, and it’s good to get back on the field and get after it.

“This is an exciting time. The first two or three days of a bowl game are always a lot of fun for the players, but they practiced well. They understand the importance of focusing in for the two hours of practice and then the rest of the day they can have a good time.”

The Cowboys will continue bowl preparations today.
