Oklahoma State last played a neutral-site game during the regular season in 1998 when the Cowboys faced Nebraska in Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City. ???We???re excited to open the season in Houston,??? said Mike Holder, OSU Director of Athletics. ???We have a growing number of Texans attending Oklahoma State and a large alumni base in the area. We will be playing a high-profile season opener in a great stadium. I think our fans will be eager for this matchup all summer.??? Oklahoma State???s last regular-season meeting with a member of the Southeastern Conference came in the 2009 season opener when the ninth-ranked Cowboys knocked off No. 13 Georgia, 24-10. OSU last played in Reliant Stadium in 2002 when it defeated Southern Mississippi in the Houston Bowl.
