The Cowboys extended their win streak with a 48-34 road win over the Mountaineers and now sit at 5-2 on the year and are tied for second place in the Big 12 at 3-1.

The Cowboys’ offense travelled (Ollie Gordon was on the bus), and their defense made some big plays to keep the ball in No. 0’s hands.

Here are 10 significant numbers to come out of the Pokes’ road win.

1. Ollie Gordon’s four rushing touchdowns tied for second-most in a game in OSU history. Only Barry Sanders has scored five in a game (three times).

2. Gordon’s 29 carries tied his career high from last week, but this time he averaged 9.7 yards per carry. Here’s more on Gordon’s historic game.

3. OSU scored 48 points behind 491 yards of total offense, 281 of which were on the ground. All three marks were the most allowed by West Virginia this season, who entered the game allowing just 22.7 points and 119 rushing yards per game.

4. OSU’s 48 points were the highest by the Cowboys this season and the most in a road game since Oregan State in 2019.

5. The Cowboys’ O-line has allowed just two sacks in the last four games

6. Including the three takeaways against West Virginia, OSU has forced multiple turnovers in three straight games for the first time since the final three contests of the 2021 season. The Cowboys scored 10 points off those WVU turnovers.

7. OSU is now 78-8 when winning the turnover battle since 2008.

8. With two fourth-down stops on Saturday, opponents are now 3-for-14 on fourth down against the Cowboys this season.

9. Mike Gundy is now 98-62 in Big 12 games, tied for third with Mac Brown at Texas.

10. This was Gundy’s 400th career game as a Cowboy which includes 46 games as a quarterback, 116 as an assistant and 238 as head coach. He’s 161-77 as the coach.
