football

By the numbers

1 - Sacks by Oklahoma State.
2 - The quarter that walk-on defensive end Taylor May entered the game.
3 - Tackles by walk-on defensive tackle Jarid King.
4 - True freshmen receivers who caught passes in the opener.
5 - Oklahoma State ball carriers that averaged over 7.3 yards per carry.
9 - Number of walk-ons I counted on one second quarter OSU kickoff. This is not an official stat. Freshman RB Caleb Muncrief and kicker Quinn Sharp were the only scholarship players I personally noted.
10 - 2012 signees who played in the opener. Three - QB Wes Lunt, receiver Blake Jackson and DT Calvin Barnett started. Lunt and seven other true freshmen played in the opener.
11 - Years since the last shutout pitched by a Cowboy defense at Boone Pickens Stadium. Northwestern State (La.) was the last, in 2001.
12 - Touchdowns scored by OSU in the entire 1991 season. Also the number of TD's scored by OSU in the 2012 season-opener.
14 - Games in a row in which the Cowboys have scored 37 or more points.
40 - Yards in penalties against OSU on four flags. Not bad considering the mix of third-team and scout teamers that played much of the game.
61 - Kickoff return yards by junior Justin Gilbert, which moves him into the #2 all-time spot in the OSU record books.
77 - Yards for true freshman receiver Austin Hays, who was a very late signee for OSU over offers from...well, almost no one. Hays led the Pokes in both receiving yards and catches.
84 - Players who played for Oklahoma State.
84 - New Big 12 record for points scored in a game (previous record 80 by Texas Tech in 2005).
87 - Jersey number of senior receiver Tracy Moore, who was suspended for the opener due to a violation of team rules. Head coach Mike Gundy said Moore would rejoin the team on Sunday.
96 - Years since more than 84 points were scored by an OSU squad (117 vs. Southwestern in 1916)
100 - Lunt's completion percentage on 11 pass attempts in part of one quarter of play.
157 - Career points for senior kicker/punter Quinn Sharp
845 - Kickoff yards by OSU. All but two of the 13 kickoffs went for touchbacks, and three Cowboys kicked off (Sharp, Matt Green and Bobby Stonebreaker)
