The grades are in from the Oklahoma State football team’s thrilling 36-34 win at home over Kansas State, and they are much better overall than recent weeks.

One week after a close win that featured lead changes and last-second heroics, the Cowboys do it again.

And once again, it was a win.

Yes, 5-0 feel pretty great, no matter how you get there.

This game was obviously a lot easier to watch, and didn’t feature anywhere near to the amount of controversial calls, bizarre turnovers, or equipment failures as the Texas debacle, but it still had it’s moments. Clutch defense, clutch offensive plays, huge conversions, special teams blunders, fifth-string quarterbacks, fifth-string quarterbacks getting knocked out of the game, it was all there. And once again, it all came down to a kick, for the third conference game in a row.

Despite everything, it’s hard not to be at least a little pleased overall with how this turned out, which is something nobody could really say last week. Let’s see how the grades look after this one.
