Cowboys opener pushed back one week

STILLWATER- The Cowboys will have to wait another week.

Oklahoma State announced its season opener against the Tulsa Golden Hurricane has been moved back one week to Sept. 19.

Kelly Hines of the Tulsa World reported the postponement was due to a COVID-19 disruption of practice for the Golden Hurricane. 

“The safety and health of our student-athletes is always at the core of all of our discussions and decisions,” Tulsa Vice President and Athletic Director Derrick Gragg said in a press release.

“Without time to properly prepare physically we would be putting our student-athletes at a greater risk of injury.”

“I’m appreciative of Mike Holder and Oklahoma State University for their cooperation in coming to this decision,” Gragg said. 

The Golden Hurricane said the team only practiced seven times in the 17 days of preseason camp in the same press release.

A time has not been announced for the rescheduled game.
