A Costly Loss of Style Points for Texas

Make no mistake. The Big 12 basement-dwelling Cowboys of Oklahoma State scared the bejeebers out of Texas, racing to a 28-9 lead. But even Fortune 500 millionaire and Oklahoma State alumnus T. Boone Pickens had to be making a phone call to check out the halftime line (or had one of his associates do it for him). How do you think he got all those chips? Texas recovered, covered their behinds and covered the second-half line, but this will cost them style points, the ones that factor into the BCS. Can you say Virginia Tech? And it also ended the Longhorns' string of covering the spread, so if you were riding that gravy train, we feel your pain (registration).
