Beginning this season, SMSC students are joining forces with The Franchise 107.7 Sports Radio in Oklahoma City to provide live coverage of the OSU Cowboy football games.  The students are gaining valauble on-the-job experience by working alongside the Franchise on-air personalities to analyze the game as well as to show highlights.   As you can see from the pictures, everyone worked hard and had a great time in the process.  Well done, everyone!
