There’s a pretty good chance that the Oklahoma State Cowboys are going to bathe the Baylor Bears in touchdowns this Saturday when the two football teams tangle in Stillwater. However, Bears fans appear to have gotten in one victory just in case.

It’s Homecoming Weekend for OSU and part of the celebration included students and fans dying the Edmon Low Library fountain orange on Thursday, which we can assume is an annual tradition.

However, some time between then and Friday evening, some intrepid Baylor folks found a way to re-dye the fountain green, one of their school’s colors.

As you might imagine, some Cowboys fans were not amused.

The bad news for Baylor is that not only isn’t this original, it’s bad luck. The last team that re-dyed the fountain their school’s colors, Missouri State, lost 40-23 to Oklahoma State. Couple that with the fact that Baylor is a 26-point underdog, currently 0-5, and could very well be on their way to an 0-12 season, and their fans may end up regretting that they poked the Pokes.
