The 10 Best Stats from OSU’s Liberty Bowl Victory

Published

on

It’s been a wild year four PFB’s 10 stats series.

Good Oklahoma State stats, bad Oklahoma State stats, but we end on a high, as the Cowboys topped Missouri 38-33 on Monday. Here are the top 10 stats from the Liberty Bowl.

13: OSU’s Liberty Bowl victory marked the Cowboys’ 13th straight winning season. 13 years ago, I was 10.

6-1: The Cowboys are 6-1 in their past seven games against AP Top 25 opponents.

3: Taylor Cornelius joins Mason Rudolph and Barry Sanders as the only OSU players to be responsible for at least 40 touchdowns in a season. Cornelius’ four against Missouri give him 42 this season. Rudolph had 47 last season while Sanders had 44 in 1988.

7: After throwing for 336 yards, Cornelius has tossed seven 300-yard games this season. That’s the third most in OSU’s history.

4: Cornelius’ four touchdown passes Monday set an OSU bowl record. It was also the most the Missouri defense has allowed this season.

141: Tyron Johnson’s 141 receiving yards were a career high.

145: Chuba Hubbard’s 145 rushing yards were a career high. That’s also the most rushing yards an OSU player has had in a bowl game since Tatum Bell ran for 160 yards in the 2002 Houston Bowl.

25: Dillon Stoner has at least one reception in his past 25 games. Monday he had six catches, 59 yards and the game’s opening score.

1: Dru Brown, C.J. Moore, Jahmyl Jeter and Gabe Lemons played in their first games at OSU on Monday.

1: Offensive lineman Deionte Noel and linebacker Kevin Henry drew their first collegiate starts in the Liberty Bowl.
