Running back Reggie White's 35-yard touchdown run on Oklahoma State's first
play from scrimmage was the third touchdown of his career.
Wide receiver Willie Young's 18-yard touchdown reception in the first
quarter was the first TD reception of his career and his second-career catch.
His second reception of the game was for 34 yards and another touchdown.
Oklahoma State's 30 first-half points represent the most in the first
stanza since the Cowboys scored 31 against Texas Tech on Oct. 19, 1999.
Elbert Craig's 98-yard defensive PAT return was the second in OSU history.
The first occurred on Nov. 14, 1992, when linebacker Keith Burns returned a
blocked extra point 74 yards against Oklahoma.
Reggie White (187-yards rushing) registered OSU's first 100-yard rushing
performance since 1998. Tony Lindsay (158) and Nathan Simmons (161) both went
over the century mark against Southwestern Louisiana (Louisiana-Lafayette) on
Nov. 14, 1998. White's total is also the most yards by a Cowboy since Jamaal
Fobbs rushed for 217 vs. Southwest Louisiana on Sept. 6, 1997.
OSU moves to 58-36-5 in season openers, including five-straight wins dating
back to 1995. On the road, the Cowboys improve to 16-29-1 all-time in openers
and tonight's victory marks the first win in Tulsa since 1993. OSU has
defeated the Hurricane six out of the last eight meetings.
The 36 points scored by Oklahoma State is the second-highest point total
the Cowboys have scored in Tulsa since scoring 46 in 1944.
