OSU Will Look Good On The Road

Posted Aug 28, 2013

STILLWATER -- When the Oklahoma State football team finished Wednesday's practice in the Sherman E. Smith Training Center they got a look at the team's new rolling image on the highway for road trips and neutral games like this weekend's game in Houston.

The new truck shifts in color from orange to black and features the brand logo, orange-eye Pete logo, Cowboys Football, the 2011 Big 12 Championship trophy, bowl logos and rings from the Mike Gundy era, the words to the alma mater, and on the back of the trailer the four numbers retired for OSU football.

The truck looks great and was purchased and is totally owned and maintained by Oklahoma State University after previously being maintained and originally donated by Emrick's Moving and Storage in Enid. Jeff Baker is the primary truck driver.

The trailer wrap was designed by assistant equipment coordinators Justin Williams and Matt "Chief" Davis and supervised by equipment coordinator for OSU athletics and football Wes Edwards.

The wrap was made by a Tennessee company only after the vinyl was cut in Hutchjnson, Kan. The company from Tennessee where the wrap was completed sent a crew to Oklahoma last Saturday to work out of a garage in Oklahoma City to complete the project to the trailer and the Mack tractor. The cost of the wrap itself was $23,000.

The truck, which the Cowboys players and coaching staff enjoyed admiring, was then driven down to the loading dock in Boone Pickens Stadium where it will be loaded for its inaugural trip to Houston and the game with Mississippi State this weekend.

Here is a video of the new truck:
