    David Ubben

    Wes Lunt went down in a heap, and the folks in orange couldn't do much besides look (or look away), hope and pray. On the opening drive of Oklahoma State's 65-24 win over Louisiana, Lunt was brought down by a defender and immediately clutched his ...

    David Ubben

    ARLINGTON, Texas -- Did any team have a better start to its bowl game than Texas A&M? Certainly not in the Big 12. The Aggies' Coryell Judie took the opening kick 69 yards, and Texas A&M needed just five plays to go the other 31 yards b...
