The Year of the Cowboy

Celebrating 100 years of Frank Eaton's legacy
Hold on to your cowboy hats as we gear up to honor Eaton, Pete and 100 years of Cowboy history with a series of special events, exclusive memorabilia and more.
A special tradition was born in the early 1920s when Oklahoma State University (then Oklahoma A&M College) began searching for a new mascot. The true roots of Pistol Pete date back to a century ago, when the character originated from legendary cowboy Frank B. Eaton. Since then, Pistol Pete has continued to serve as a widely recognized symbol of our bright and welcoming OSU spirit.
