Cowboys forced to land in Tulsa, bus to Stillwater


(Stillwater-AP) -- Following Saturday's 58-0 drubbing at the hands of Texas Tech, the Oklahoma State football team's plane wasn't able to land in Stillwater.

The plane landed in Tulsa instead, and the Cowboys bused from Tulsa International Airport to Stillwater.

Officials say the charter plane suffered electrical failure and had-to be jump started following the game in Lubbock.

Coach Bob Simmons says the team plane then had to fly to Tulsa because the Stillwater airport doesn't have the equipment needed to start the plane again.
