The Cowboys were four-point favorites against the Sooners — although it never felt that way — and they won 37-33. That’s a significant number, but here are several more from the Pokes’ huge win.

1: OSU finishes No. 1 in the Big 12’s regular season standings for the first time since 2011.

4: The Cowboys boast four AP Top 25 wins on the season. To this point, only Alabama and Georgia have as many.

10: This was the fourth-ever AP Top 10 matchup played in Stillwater and the third Bedlam matchup between Top 10 teams.

7: The win over the Sooners marked the Cowboys’ seventh home wins in a single season. They’ve won six nine times, most recently in 2016. It’s also the 14th time OSU has gone undefeated in Stillwater. The eight-game home streak is the fifth-longest all-time for the Pokes.

35: That’s the number of wins Mike Gundy now boasts over an AP Top 25 team. The only active coaches with more are Alabama’s Nick Saban and Clemson’s Dabo Swinney.

11: Oklahoma State is 11-1 for just the second time in program history and has logged 11 wins for just the third time ever. OSU can earn 12 wins next weekend for the second time ever (2011) and has the chance for its first-ever 13-win season if they do.

23: Spencer Sanders earned his 23rd career win in a start, tying Brandon Weeden and Zac Robinson. Mike Gundy had 28 and Mason Rudolph had 32.

37: Sanders’ 37-yard touchdown run to pull the Cowboys within 33-13 was the longest run of his career.

148: The win moves Mike Gundy to 148-68 on his career. Among Big 12 head coaches he’s fourth in all-time wins behind Bob Stoops (190), Bill Snyder (169) and Mack Brown (158). There’s no good reason he couldn’t finish at No. 2 all-time, and catching Bob is not out of the realm of possibility if Gundy wants to go for it.

100: Brennan Presley’s 100-yard kickoff return tied a school record (duh). He joins Barry Sanders who did it three times and Justin Gilbert who went goal line-to-goal line twice.
