Lassie has to be barking in pride about the success they've had so far.

And tonight at 7 the No. 12 Cowboys (16-2 overall, 2-1 Big 12) ride into Aggieland to face an A&M squad currently No. 8 in the nation. The Aggies (15-2, 3-0) are currently marching with an eight-game winning streak. The game will be televised as part of the ESPN+ package (KOCB-34 in Oklahoma City and Stillwater; KJRH-2 in Northeastern Oklahoma).
