The tenth-ranked Oklahoma State Cowboys were tied with Texas at halftime, 7-7, and Cowboys fans weren’t exactly thrilled by the slow start for one of college football’s highest-scoring offenses.
The seven first-half points scored for Oklahoma State were the fewest of any game played this season. It was also the lowest first-half point total for the Cowboys since scoring six against on Ole Miss in the Sugar Bowl on Jan. 1, 2016.
Without further adieu, here are how fans in Stillwater are reacting to the sluggish start in Texas.
I don't know what Oklahoma State is afraid of…but that was a horrendous half of football

Absolutely no reason this game should be tied.

They may as well have just laid on the field for a minute and a half before halftime. Gutless play calling

We act like we don’t know wth we are doing. Play calls terrible, clock mngmnt terrible!! Make a plan at half bcoz this is NOT looking good.

Dear Mike Gundy,
Please get out of the way of this offense.
All #Okstate fans

Fans weren’t alone. Media members were caught off guard by the seven-point first-half performance as well.
Boston College has more points than Oklahoma State, Texas Tech, and several other teams combined
Anyway, gotta go

The shootout we all expected… #OKState and Texas tied at 7 at the half

Other than @Jake_Trotter, who called 7-7 at half in Austin?

Oklahoma State has scored at least 31 points in every game entering the Texas game. They’ll need a big second half on offense to keep that streak alive.
