Cowboys Break Camp

Oklahoma State head coach Les Miles put his team through a three hour-plus workout Monday morning at Boone Pickens Stadium in preparation for the Dec. 29 Alamo Bowl.

The Cowboys worked extensively on the game plan for Ohio State in the Alamo Bowl on both sides of the ball. The practice also included a lengthy special teams period that covered all special teams units.

The practice finished up with the starters and top backups running sprints while the young players, redshirts, and older squad players went through a 15-minute full contact scrimmage. In the scrimmage, Bobby Reid and Mike Friess took turns guiding the offense at quarterback.

"We have put in some good work here, but the bulk of our work is still in front of us in San Antonio," said Miles. "We have the squad back to where we are getting our fundamentals and timing right, but we have to fine tune and sharpen our game for the challenge of playing a very fine Ohio State football team in San Antonio."

The Cowboys will be allowed to go home and spend some time with family tonight and tomorrow (Tuesday), but either need to get themselves to San Antonio or fly on the team charter out of Oklahoma City on Wednesday in order to get to San Antonio by noon. The team will work out later that day in the Alamodome and then hold the remainder of their practices for the game at Alamo Heights High School.
