Cowboys Look Impressive Against KU

#5 Oklahoma State looked impressive during its 70-28 victory over Kansas Saturday in Boone Pickens Stadium. The win moves OSU to 5-0 on the year and 2-0 in Big 12 action. The Cowboys are already having a record-setting season. Here are just a few marks already established this season. The Mike Gundy Era has elevated Oklahoma State to the national scene.

  • Oklahoma State's offensive explosion against KU tied numerous single-game school records, including most points in the modern era (70, set against Southern Illinois, 1973), most touchdowns (10, vs. Southern Illinois, 1973), most points in a half (56, vs. Southern Illinois, 1973), and most points in a quarter (35, vs. Southern Illinois, 1973, and vs. Baylor, 2002).

  • Eight different Oklahoma State players scored touchdowns in the game against Kansas.

  • The Boone Pickens Stadium crowd of 58,030 for the KU game was the second largest home crowd to ever watch an Oklahoma State game, and was only 486 shy of the record set in 2009 against Texas (58,516).

  • Oklahoma State has had its top 10 largest crowds during the Mike Gundy Era, and all have come since the 2008 season.

  • The Cowboys are 5-0 for just the 10th time in school history. However, OSU is 5-0 for the third time in the last four years under Mike Gundy.

  • OSU has a seven-game road-victories streak -- second-longest active streak in the country behind Oregon.

  • The Cowboys defeated a top-10 team for the first time since 2008.

  • OSU against TAMU marked the first time in school history that OSU has had three different players with at least 10 receptions – Justin Blackmon (11), Josh Cooper (11) and Hubert Anyiam (10). In fact, OSU had never had two players with 10 receptions in the same game.

  • Quarterback Brandon Weeden established new school single-game records in three categories against Texas A&M: passes completed (47), passes attempted (60) and passing yards (438). He held the school record in all three with a 42-of-53 yard performance against Arizona earlier this season and 435 yards against Baylor last year.
