Oklahoma State leads the all-time series 17-12 and holds a 10-5 series advantage in Stillwater.  Mike Gundy is 5-1 all-time as a head coach against Baylor.  The Cowboys defeated the Bears, 55-28, last season in Stillwater.  The series dates back to 1914, when OSU beat Baylor, 60-0.  Baylor's last win over OSU was in 2005, 44-34. 

Homecoming is a big, big deal in Stillwater and has been labeled as America's Greatest Homecoming Celebration. This year will mark the 90th Homecoming in OSU history and is themed "Where Your Story Began". The first Homecoming on campus was the 1913 Harvest Carnival. 

• One of the highlights of Homecoming is the Friday night "Walkaround" in the Greek area of the campus. Last year more than 35,000 participated in the Walkaround.
• Other big events include the Saturday morning parade and Hoops and Homecoming, which is part pep rally, part Midnight Madness. That event follows the Walkaround and will be held in Gallagher-Iba Arena Friday evening.
• The OSU campus is full of Homecoming activities all week. Details can be found at

Oklahoma State is 47-35-7 all-time in Homecoming play. The Cowboys are 2-0 when hosting Baylor for Homecoming with OSU earning wins in 2008 and 1972. Kansas State is OSU's most frequent Homecoming opponent. The Wildcats have visited Stillwater 14 times for the event.
