Football: Cowboys 27, Cyclones 34

That’s two straight losses for the Cowboys who are off to a 2-2 start after their 34-27 Big 12 opener loss at Iowa State.

• Bill Haisten didn’t pull any punches after the loss.

I really don’t expect a 2-10 result because West Virginia, Cincinnati and Houston are on the Cowboy schedule, but I do feel confident that Oklahoma State’s streak of consecutive winning seasons is about to end.
