15 years ago today, billionaire OSU alum Boone Pickens announced his donation of $165 million to the Cowboy athletic department.

"This gives us an opportunity to get in the ballgame with everybody else," Mike Holder said during a press conference at the OSU Athletics Center.

"If we hadn't had this gift, I feel like we would have been dead in the water for the next 20 years."
