Lost in the chaos of OSU’s comeback win over Texas on Saturday: The Cowboys secured bowl eligibility with their win over the Longhorns, marking the 16th consecutive season of bowl eligibility.

October 17 is the earliest OSU has reached bowl eligibility in a season since 2017, when it defeated Texas that year in overtime on October 21 to reach the six-win mark. OSU reached bowl eligibility in 2015 on October 10, which was the last time OSU opened the season with six consecutive wins.

Reaching a bowl for yet another year emphasizes the incredible stability and consistency OSU has had under Mike Gundy since he took over the program in 2005. Only Clemson, Alabama, Wisconsin, OU and Georgia have longer bowl streaks, making OSU’s the sixth-longest in college football.
