:: Today's win was Oklahoma State's fourth in the last five meetings with Kansas State and its fifth in the last seven contests against the Wildcats.
:: OSU has now won six straight home games, dating back to last season's loss to Texas.
:: The Cowboys are now 7-1 in games following a loss since 2010.
:: Oklahoma State improved to 14-1 in its last 15 games in Boone Pickens Stadium, dating back to the start of the 2011 season.
:: The Cowboys are now 20-8 all-time against the Wildcats in Stillwater.
:: OSU is now 27-4 in its last 31 games against unranked opponents.
:: Today's attendance of 58,841 marked the third-largest crowd in Boone Pickens Stadium history.
:: Cornerback Tyler Patmon made his first start in an Oklahoma State uniform today. He started 32 games in three years during his career at Kansas. Patmon is one of eight players who have made their first start in an OSU uniform this season.
:: With Kansas State's punt on its opening drive, Oklahoma State has now held opponents scoreless on game-opening drives four consecutive times.
:: Running back Jeremy Smith entered the game ranked first in the Big 12 and 12th nationally in rushing touchdowns with six. He added one more today with his score in the first quarter.
:: OSU's first touchdown drive lasted only 41 seconds. The Cowboys have now scored on a drive of less than two minutes in 27 consecutive games and in 43 of the past 44 games.
:: That drive was also the Cowboys' second-fastest of the season.
:: Kansas State's blocked field goal return for a touchdown was the first time an opponent has returned a field goal block for a score since Texas Tech did it on Nov. 11, 2000.
:: In the third quarter, linebacker Caleb Lavey ended consecutive Kansas State drives with his first forced fumble and first interception of the season, with each occurring in a span of less than two minutes.
:: The following Kansas State possession also ended with a lost fumble as Tyler Johnson's sack of Jake Waters jarred the ball loose and it was recovered by Shaun Lewis. That recovery was the third Oklahoma State takeaway in as many KSU possessions.
:: OSU committed just one penalty on the day, which matched the fewest in school history. The Cowboys have committed one penalty in a game on eight previous occasions with the last coming against Stanford on Jan. 2, 2012.
