CHANDLER, Ariz. — Oklahoma State went through its final preparations for the Insight Bowl on Sunday.

The Cowboys (6-6) meet Indiana (7-5) tonight at 5 p.m. in Tempe, Ariz.

OSU finished its pre-game obligations Sunday night with a visit to Rawhide Wild West Town, where an orange-clad crowd attended a pep rally.

The event’s M.C. was Larry Reece, “The Voice of the Cowboys.” He opened the pep rally by telling the crowd it was clear they had “taken over this Wild West town.”

Then the Roughriders, the actors employed by Rawhide, performed a skit that involved the good guys wearing orange and the bad guys dressed as Hoosiers.

Pistol Pete was included in the skit and exchanged gun-twirling tricks with the Roughriders.

The band played Three Dog Night’s “Never Been to Spain.”

One of the verses goes, “Well I’ve never been to Heaven; But I been to Oklahoma; Well they tell me I was born there; But I really don’t remember; In Oklahoma, not Arizona; What does it matter; What does it matter?”

Then Lieutenant Governor Jari Askins and Senate President Pro Tempore Mike Morgan came to the stage.

Askins spoke of how well the OSU fans were representing the state before Morgan took the microphone.

Morgan, a Stillwater native and OSU gradute, noted that Askins was wearing “another color” when he met her and commented on how much better she looked in orange. Askins has two degrees from the University of Oklahoma.

Next came the guest of honor, Cowboy coach Mike Gundy.

Gundy noted how large the crowd was and told the story of how he ran into a hotel employee who said, “Everyone is wearing that color.”

He said he later ran into a man who told him everyone was wearing orange.

“I said, ‘You stick around long enough, you’ll be wearing it too,’” Gundy said.

Then he turned his attention to football.

The coach promised the crowd his defense would “hit them in the mouth,” adding they were listening to all of the talk about how the game would be a shootout between two stellar offenses.

He also spoke of how the offense would score points and freshman kicker Dan Bailey would have a chance at a field goal and kick it right down the middle.

He finished by stating he had the best job in the country because of the fans.

Reece took back the microphone and pointed out PGA Tour members Doug Tewell and Bo Van Pelt, both former Cowboy golfers.

He thanked the band and the Roughriders, led the crowd in “Orange Power” and “Beat Indiana” chants.

The event ended with Pistol Pete taking the stage and leading “OSU Cowboys” chants.
