STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) _ The frustration of fans is rising after a pair of early road losses for Oklahoma State.

But coach Mike Gundy Monday encouraged backers to stick with the team.

During his weekly news conference, Gundy said he is mostly unaware of the level of angst among fans after Oklahoma State's 41-23 loss to Troy.

The Cowboys had five turnovers and appeared ill-prepared against a foe from the Sun Belt Conference.

Gundy said Oklahoma State (1-2) remains focused on its Big 12 Conference opener this Saturday against unbeaten Texas Tech.

Troy rolled up 562 yards of offense against the Cowboys using spread attack similar to Tech.
