10 Stats from OSU’s Season-Opening Win Against Oregon State

A look at the 10 best stats from OSU’s season-opener.




This new-look Cowboy can offense put some numbers.

Oklahoma State topped Oregon State 52-36 on Friday in Corvallis. With all those points scored, there were plenty of stats to choose from for the first 10 Stats of the season.

13-2: The Cowboys are 13-2 in season openers under Mike Gundy, that includes a 5-2 record against Power Five programs in season openers.

10-3: Gundy is 10-3 against the Pac-12, and the Cowboys have won their past three meetings with the conference. OSU hasn’t lost to a Pac-12 program since 2012, a 59-38 road loss to Arizona.

79.2: Spencer Sanders completed 79.2 percent of his passes against Oregon State. That’s tied for the eighth-best percentage with at least 20 attempts in program history.

109: Sanders’ 109 rushing yards against the Beavers mark the third time in the past 10 seasons a Cowboy quarterback eclipsed triple digits on the ground. The other two were Taylor Cornelius’ 106 against West Virginia last season and J.W. Walsh’s 125 against Mississippi State in 2013.

221: Chuba Hubbard’s 221 rushing yards are the most from a Cowboy since Justice Hill ran for 228 in Bedlam in 2017. It’s a career high for Hubbard, breaking his previous personal best of 145 rushing yards in the Liberty Bowl last season.

Sixth: Hubbard becomes the sixth player in program history to run for 200 yards in a season opener, joining Bob Fenimore (1945), Ernest Anderson (1982), Thurman Thomas (1985), Vernand Morency (2004) and Kendall Hunter (2010). Of those six performances, four came against current Pac-12 programs.

Four: Tylan Wallace is up to four multiple touchdown games in his career. Wallace had three last season before his five-reception, 92-yard, two-touchdown night against Oregon State.

26: Dillon Stoner has caught a pass in his past 26 games. He had five receptions for 31 yards against Oregon State.

14: Oklahoma state played 14 true or redshirt freshmen against Oregon State. The Cowboys used four true freshmen (all defenders) in Thomas Harper, Trace Ford, Na’drian Dizadare and Jayden Jernigan.

Eight: Eight Oklahoma State players made their first career starts Friday: Spencer Sanders, Bryce Bray, Brock Martin, Tyler Lacy, Cameron Murray, Brendon Evers, Amen Ogbongbemiga and Tre Sterling. It was also Jordan McCray’s first start as a Cowboy after transferring from South Alabama.
