The Cotton Bowl came to end with the OSU Cowboys falling to the Mizzou Tigers, 41 to 31.
FOX23 followed the game with team coverage, including a painful injury, to go with OSU's painful loss.
Our team went to South Tulsa to hear from the fans, and get their reactions to the big loss.
Oklahoma State alumni and fans flocked to the Fox and Hound restaurant, in south Tulsa, to watch the game with family and friends to support their team.
Orange clothing and orange banners filled the crowed room with color and cheers rang out all around, "Go Pokes, Woo Hoo."
"I never knew they had a watch party. There is a lot of an OSU alumnus here so I am enjoying myself," OSU alumni Jackson Chiwanga said.
"That's all I've ever known. I'm actually originally an OU fan. But I married this lovely lady five years ago and she has turned me into an OSU fan," Roy Drennon said.
Three rooms full of people left the restaurant with standing room only, and anytime OSU did something well on the big screen, a roar of cheering took over the whole place.
However it wasn't just about the Poke fans.
FOX23 did spot a few Tiger supporters.
We asked them, "Do you feel a little outnumbered?"
"Just a little bit. Yea. But everyone's great. It's a friendly rivalry," said Mizzou fan Gayle Hudson and Robin Cox.
"It would be great to see Oklahoma State follow up with that big OU win last night," said Chiwanga.
Not only to show dominance, but perseverance.
OSU alumni's told FOX23 it was a rivalry worth fighting.
"I'm a Gundy fan. Gundy has really turned OSU around in the last seven or eight years so I'm really tickled about that," said Chiwanga.
Even though OSU was beaten, the alumni and fans will never give up on the Pokes.
Nights like these, win or lose, are memories never to be forgotten.
