Notes: Cowboys sleeping well

The mattresses measure 54 inches wide, 95 inches long and 11 inches deep. An average king-size mattress is approximately 80 inches long.

"The beds are really comfortable," said linebacker Jeremy Nethon. "They help you get a good night's rest and recover. They are definitely top of the line and have to be the best in the nation."

Caravans finish this week - OSU will wrap up its summer Cowboy Caravan schedule with stops Oklahoma City on July 26 and Tulsa on July 31st.

OSU football head coach Mike Gundy will be the keynote speaker at both events.
