Oklahoma State officials are considering a request by ESPN to move this fall's Texas A&M game to a Thursday night.  The game is currently scheduled for Saturday, October 4th. ESPN is asking that it be moved to October 2nd for television purposes.

The incentives include national TV exposure, money and more students on campus.  A drawback is that fans would have to drive to and from Stillwater on a work day.

OSU Athletic Director Mike Holder says he expects a decision in a few days and it likely will come down to what coach Mike Gundy wants.

Gundy wasn't available for comment.
