Oklahoma State Brutally Trolled For Paying South Alabama $300K To Blow Them Out

Oklahoma State has become the target of online mockery following a blowout loss to South Alabama. Not only were the Cowboys manhandled by the Sun Belt member, but they paid for the Jaguars to embarrass them.

OSU agreed to give their opponent $300,000 for the visit to Stillwater and left with their tails between their legs.

The Cowboys’ offense struggled on Saturday, unable to find the endzone until the fourth quarter with the game well in hand. South Alabama jumped out to a 23-0 first half lead and cruised to an easy victory.

The Jaguars became an FBS team in 2012, making the jump from the FCS. South Alabama entered the matchup with Oklahoma State with a 1-14 overall record against the Power Five, with the lone win coming over Mississippi State in 2016.

Since, the Jags have been close, most recently losing 32-31 to UCLA last season, but they finally got back over the hump this past weekend.

USA dominated on the field, rushing for 243 yards as a team. They also held a typically high-flying Oklahoma State offense to just 208 total yards while forcing a pair of turnovers.

Not only was the team riding a high from a huge win over a Big XII foe, but it received a nice little payday to come in and rout the Cowboys in front of their home crowd.

Now, it’s not the first time a Power Five team has been beaten by the Group of Five, and it won’t be the last. Notre Dame and Texas A&M found themselves in similar situations last year with losses to Marshall and Appalachian State, respectively.

But usually, the scores are a bit closer in those semi-rare instances.

College football fans have been quick to mock Oklahoma State.

“This has to be a different type of pain. Paying to get dominated is wild,” one follower wrote after the Cowboys’ loss.

“I love these games when essentially another team unwittingly pays for their own a– whopping,” another person said.

“So, in other words, that was a bad investment for Oklahoma State?” this fan asked. Have to say it was.

South Alabama, though? They’ll cash that check with a huge smile on their face following the upset.

Oklahoma State will try to recover from the embarrassing loss in Week 4 against conference rival Iowa State while South Alabama looks to ride the momentum into a matchup with Central Michigan.
