Complete OSU Bowl History


The Cowboys are making a school-record fifth straight bowl game appearance under head coach Mike Gundy.
The 2010 Cowboys
In his sixth year at the helm, head coach Mike Gundy has led his alma mater to a historic season in 2010. The Cowboys have reached ten regular season wins for the first time in school history, won a share of its first-ever Big 12 South division championship, and feature one of the nation's most explosive offenses.

Leading the way for the record-setting OSU offense this season have been the latest generation of the Triplets - quarterback Brandon Weeden, running back Kendall Hunter and wide receiver Justin Blackmon. The OSU Triple Threat became the first trio in NCAA FBS history to combine for 4,000+ passing yards, 1,500+ rushing yards, and 1,500+ receiving yards.

Justin Blackmon was named 2010 Big 12 Offensive Player of the Year, but he is not the only Cowboy to be honored by the conference. Mike Gundy was named Coach of the Year, Dan Bailey was named Special Teams Player of the Year, and Shaun Lewis was recognized as the Co-Defensive Freshman of the Year. Nine Cowboys were All-Big 12 First Team selections (most of any school in the league), including Brandon Weeden - the first All-Conference quarterback in the modern era of Cowboy Football.

In 2010 alone, the Cowboys have set records for:
Wins in a regular season (10)
Points scored in a season (539)
Passing touchdowns in a season (34)
Pass completion percentage (67.6%)
Total offense in a season (6,451 yards)
Total offense in a game (725 yards vs. Baylor)
Passing yards in a season (4,256 yards)
Passing yards in a game (435 yards vs. Baylor
Passes completed in a season (332)
Passes attempted in a season (491)
Punting average (46.2 yards/punt)

Several individual records have also fallen, as well as long-standing road droughts at Texas Tech (1944), Kansas State (1988) and Texas (1944).
