The Cowboys get a break from the mosh pit that is the Big 12 for a date with Florida in the Big 12/SEC Challenge this weekend.

It’ll be a reunion with former assistant coach Erik Pastrana, who left Oklahoma State for his native Florida this offseason. The Cowboys are 6-2 in the Big 12/SEC Challenge. They’re on a three-game winning streak in the event, beating Arkansas last season, Texas A&M in 2019-20 and South Carolina in 2018-19.
