It wasn’t always pretty, but the Oklahoma State Cowboys managed to defeat the Texas Longhorns in a tough Big 12 game on Tuesday night.
After the game, Oklahoma State head coach Mike Boynton explained why the win is something the Cowboys will take, regardless of how it was obtained.
“Winning is hard — that’s what I think,” Boynton said via The AP. “I’m extremely, extremely proud of our guys, even for having to win the way we did. Obviously, we played really well for the first half, probably as a good a first half as we’ve played all year . and then I thought our defense was still solid, but our offense just stagnated and got kind of tight against their press late. But you don’t apologize for a win in this league.”
He’s not wrong. Especially not for an Oklahoma State team still trying to find its footing.
With the win on Tuesday, the Oklahoma State Cowboys improved to 7-8 on the season. While their record isn’t gaudy, it’s worth noting Boynton is doing a good job instilling a positive trending culture within the program.
