Oklahoma State University says crews inspected Boone Pickens Stadium right after Saturday morning's 5.6-magnitude earthquake and found no damage.

The university says it took crews about two hours to conduct the inspection.  

Number 21 Oklahoma State begins the 2016 season at home against Southeastern Louisiana with kickoff at 2:30 p.m.

The last time an earthquake happened on game day in Stillwater was in 2013 when OSU was playing OU.

Cowboy kicker Ben Grogan was about to kick a 41-yard field goal attempt in the second quarter when a 4.5-magnitude earthquake shook the stadium.

He made the field goal, giving the Cowboys a 10-7 lead over the Sooners.

Meanwhile in Tulsa, the University of Tulsa takes on San Jose State at H.A. Chapman Stadium Saturday starting at 6 p.m. 

TU says it conducted an inspection of the stadium and campus buildings after Saturday morning's quake.  

A school spokesperson told News On 6, they found a water leak in the basement of a classroom building.  The school says it is unsure if the leak was quake-related.  The water was shut off to the building until it is repaired.
