OSU has the fastest fight song among Power 5 schools

Pretty fun project by the folks at 538.


Interesting. In their analysis, I’m not sure they used the full song… As they missed that we do have the cliches of “Win” “School Colors” and “Spelling Something Out” in Ride 'Em Cowboys.

Well, millenials want shorter game times. If faster fight songs contribute to that, good, then…?

(Sarcasm in case you can’t tell.)

No we don’t, that’s not in Ride Em. The song that’s played is just the following lyrics:
Ride, ride, ride, ride,
Ride’em Cowboys,
Right down the field;
Fight! Fight! Fight! Fight!
Fight’em Cowboys, and never yield.
Ride, ride, ride, ride,
Ride on, Cowboys, to victory;
Cross (opponent)'s goal;
Then we’ll sing O-kla-homa State!

We do have the OSU chant, but that’s not part of the song, it’s separate.
