There is a new commitment to winning at Oklahoma State. And tangible brick and mortar proof of that commitment is now on display.

Oklahoma State officially entered a new era in the summer of 2009 with the completion of the historic west end zone project.

When the football staff and daily operations of the program made the move into the mammoth new facility, which spans more than 146,000 square feet on the field level alone, it put the exclamation mark on a five-year building period that saw the transformation of Lewis Field into the sparkling, 60,218-seat Boone Pickens Stadium.

Cowboy Football is now housed in what is unquestionably one of America's top facilities. And the glitter includes substance.

Every detail that encompasses the daily life of a college football player has been included in the meticulous planning and execution of the west end zone project. From ventilated lockers to functional meeting rooms, to the sports medicine center and its various options of hydro-therapy, OSU student-athletes truly find themselves in a new world.

The new locker room and lounge area sprawls over 14,000 square feet just steps from the turf of Boone Pickens Stadium. It is flanked by an even larger strength and conditioning center (20,000 square feet) on one side, and the new sports medicine center and the innovative equipment room on the other.

Offensive and defensive meeting rooms are just across the hall and the impressive new theater room is located just around the bend.

Just a few levels above the locker room, the team's impressive dining area offers views inside the stadium as well as across the OSU campus. The Cowboy football offices and more meeting rooms ring the upper levels of the stadium with suites sitting atop the facility.

How all-encompassing was the project? When Bullet, carrying the OSU Spirit Rider, streaks across the stadium turf after a Cowboy touchdown, the horse will return to his own stall located off the northwest tunnel.

The spirit groups have their own warm-up area. An underground loading dock can accommodate up to three semi-trucks at the same time.

The next phase in the history of Oklahoma State football is about to be written. But with the opening of the west end zone, long-time observers of college football can attest that history has already been made.

The creation of the West End Zone facility was one of the biggest construction projects in OSU history.

Construction began in 2007 and was completed in 2009 at a cost of approximately $185 million.

The Cowboy Football locker room is one of the largest in the country.

All lockers radiate out from where Coach Gundy addresses the team.

This mural reminds the Cowboys to "Play for the man standing next to you" before the tunnel walk.

The Cowboy locker room includes a player lounge area in the back of the room.

The team theater room includes oversized leather chairs that can seat over 200 people.

The team theater room hosts team meetings, as well as post-game press conferences.

The Cowboy Football team has access to its own 20,000-foot Strength & Conditioning Center.

Hydrotherapy pools are one of the many features of the expansive training facility adjacent to the locker room.

Great meals and a commanding view of the stadium and campus can be found at the Training Table, which can seat over 200 individuals.

Several individual position meeting rooms can be found on the coaches level. The West End Zone also includes meeting rooms for the offense and defense.
