Oklahoma fans want to move on from Lincoln Riley, but Oklahoma State fans refuse to let that happen. At the basketball game between the Cowboys and the Sooners, Oklahoma State had fun trolling its in-state rival.
Gallagher-Iba Arena was ready for the Sooners, and the Oklahoma State students had their share of jokes for Oklahoma. For starters, newspapers featured Riley as the head coach at USC were placed on the seats ahead of the game.
In addition to that, there were chants of “USC” from the crowd, and the arena played “California Love” by Tupac. Clearly, the Cowboys had been waiting to troll their biggest rival on the basketball court.
Not only did the Cowboys get a few laughs at the Sooners’ expense, but they also won the game, 64-55. Oklahoma State used a strong second half to pull away from Oklahoma as the team got contributions throughout the lineup.
