Rickie Fowler is a big fan of his alma mater, Oklahoma State, and the school's stellar football team. He's also a big fan of racing.

How convenient then that his OSU Cowboys were in Austin on Saturday to take on Texas, and the 2013 Formula 1 U.S. Grand Prix took place on Sunday in that very same town. Of course Fowler made his way to Texas.

And the weekend couldn't have gone much better for him. First, OSU routed Texas, 38-13, and moved up to No. 10 in the BCS standings, No. 11 in the AP poll, and No. 9 in the USA Today/Coaches poll. Then on Sunday, Sebastian Vettel won his eighth straight race, an F1 season record.

Like Fowler, Vettel is a Red Bull athlete.

 
Prior to the race, Fowler hung with skateboarding and rallycross racing star Bucky Lasek, a fellow Puma athlete.

And Saturday night he met F1 legend Lewis Hamilton.

Mercedes isn't a sponsor of Fowler's, but the company hooked the golfer up with a ride for the weekend.

It's a rough life Fowler lives.
