Bison tough out win in OT! Bye, bye Sooners, hello Aztecs

What a game! The Bison proved their physical and mental toughness and came through in the clutch with poise and key free throws to defeat the #5 seed Oklahoma in overtime.

While my pick for the Bison to advance to the Sweet 16 is looking great, I won’t be a billionaire as Harvard and Dayton blew my chance early. Hope they both advance too!

Can hardly wait to for Saturday to see the Bison take on the #4 seed San Diego State Aztecs. GO BISON!!!

The Bison upset deserves the AP’s “Big Story” classification by Tim Booth:
