LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) If they weren't getting together for a game tomorrow, Kansas and Oklahoma State might get together to form a support group.

The Cowboys and Jayhawks both are coming off come from behind losses that shatter confidence and destroy morale.

Kansas led Texas A&M for most of the game last week until the final few seconds. Then the Aggies capped an 80 yard drive for a 21-18 victory.

OSU was leading Kansas State 27-17 with just over 3 minutes left, but wound up on the short end of a 31-27 verdict for their second straight loss.

Cowboys defensive end Nathan Peterson says everyone's fed up with what's gone down the last two weeks and they're more anxious and more ready to get out there and play.

The Jayhawks will be looking for their first win over OSU since 1995, the year before the Big 12 was formed.
