Series History (OSU Leads 2-1)

1983Oklahoma State27-17Cincinnati
1958Oklahoma State19-14Cincinnati

These teams last met in the nonconference portion of the 1983 season, a year OSU went 8-4 in the Cowboys’ last season under Jimmy Johnson.

Rusty Hilger was the Cowboys’ quarterback in 1983, throwing for 1,247 yards and 11 touchdowns as a junior. He’d play another season in Stillwater before an eight-year NFL career. Shawn Jones was the Cowboys’ leading rusher in 1983, running for 961 yards and 11 touchdowns.

Prior to that season, you have to go all the way back to the 1950s to see these two teams play each other. Under coach Cliff Speegle, OSU was 8-3 in 1958 with a late October win in Cincinnati before Cincy bested OSU in Stillwater the following year.

Back in 1959, Dick Soergel was running the show for the Pokes, throwing for 1,100 yards and eight touchdowns. He was just the third OSU player to throw for 1,000 yards in a season behind Jack Hartman (1949) and Don Babers (1951). Jim Dillard was only a sophomore in ’59, but he was the Cowboys’ leading rusher that year with 582 yards.

Soergel was also the Pokes’ quarterback in 1958, but senior Duane Wood was OSU’s leading rusher with 492 yards.
