The 2011 Big 12 title-winning OSU football team will get a special tribute on Saturday, so it’s only fitting that the star of the squad, Brandon Weeden, will step into the spotlight ahead of the game against Baylor.
Weeden, the quarterback who led the Cowboys to the conference crown, will on Saturday serve as the Orange Power VIP for the game, which means he’ll get to lead the “Orange Power” pregame chant as Rashaun Woods did last week. It’s an honor specifically reserved for VIPs and new on the tradition list after Mr. Orange Power himself retired earlier this year.
This won’t be the first time Weeden has been in Stillwater for a Saturday game — he served on the ESPN+ broadcast team for OSU’s season-opener — but it is the first time he’ll step in front of a sold-out crowd to get the fans rolling. He’s likely to be met with a big applause as a fan favorite. Oh, and it seems he’s already got a head start on how he’ll kick off festivities, too …
