Ready for kickoff in Stillwater

STILLWATER, Okla. -- We're only a few minutes from kickoff and ready to go here at Boone Pickens Stadium.

It's a late-arriving crowd, but that's no huge surprise, considering the 12:30 p.m. ET kickoff.

Oklahoma State will get receiver Justin Blackmon back today, as well as return man/backup corner Justin Gilbert, who has missed time with an ankle injury. I popped down to the field briefly and both are ready to go.

We're ready to go up in the press box, too, and the Cowboys just stormed out of their corral, one of the most underrated team entrances in the league.

It's time to get this thing going and sort out the top of the Big 12 South.
